    Cleaning Encoder Sensor on SP540V

    Anyone have any clever ideas on how to clean the accumulation off of the eyes of the linear encoder sensor? The gap is only about 1/16" wide so that eliminates my medical grade swaps.

    Cloth is not the issue. How do you get the cloth in the tiny gap to clean the eyes?

    after taking it off, i drown a shop cloth in isopropyl, and fold it and basically credit card swipe the reader. power off & unplugged of course. Oh, watch out when putting it back on, try not to have it rubbing against the strip :)

    Those cans of compressed air also work nicely; and you don't have to remove/reinstall the sensor.
