  • Causa
    Perkinelmer have become aware that janus and janus g3 automated workstations were failing production final acceptance testing due to a ‘horizontal motion error’ message displayed on the system. further investigation concluded that two printed circuit boards (pcb) used in mdt models of janus and janus g3 were manufactured with the incorrect resistor values. this anomaly affects component part number 7101640 (pcb-quad motor controller mdt) and part number 7101647 (pcb-quad motor controller gripper). this anomaly could result in the ‘horizontal motion error’ being displayed and result in instrument down time. the affected printed circuit boards control functional movement of the instrument head and gripper. impact to any user samples is low, as the instrument clearly displays an error message, ‘horizontal motion error’.Perkinelmer field service personnel have been instructed to schedule a customer service visit to upgrade affected customer systems with revised printed circuit boards.
