Tip Cycles  30 n.a.
150The second feature of these smart tips is the automatic autoclave counter. The smart tip will track how many times it has been autoclaved and will alert you when it's time to change the head for optimum scanning. As you may know, all scanner heads have a set lifespan based on the number of sterilization cycles before the head starts to warp and needs to be replaced. For the TRIOS 4 it is stated that they will last for up to 150 cycles - that is a huge number compared to other scanners. The autoclave counter gives you an easy way of tracking this. These smart tips are also said to optimize performance and increase the battery life by 30%.
