Service Parent FAQs
Why should I service?
There are many reasons why you should service your VeriVide equipment.
In the rare event that things go wrong, servicing your light cabinet with VeriVide means that you receive peace of mind through a 12-month parts warranty. Equipment is sold with 12 months warranty and booking a service before it expires ensures continuity.
Regularly servicing ensures that you meet your relevant retailer, national and international standards for visual assessment. VeriVide lamps have been developed to meet or exceed international standards ISO 3664:2009 and ISO 3668, ASTM 1729 and DIN 6173-2.
Over time, natural wear and tear can affect cabinet performance. Regular servicing ensures that your light cabinet remains as accurate as the day of purchase.
Maintaining all visual assessment equipment in your supply chain helps avoid costly inconsistencies and time wasted due to disagreements.
Differences in opinion due to poorly maintained light boxes can increase time to market and negatively affect product quality.
Lamp measurement uses spectrometric readings to ensure lamps adhere to tight tolerances.
Outstanding build quality is a key characteristic of VeriVide equipment. Servicing extends the life of the equipment, ensuring you get the most out of your investment.
When should I service?
We recommend you service your VeriVide equipment at least once every 12 months, to ensure it is in the same condition as when it was purchased. The 12 month interval also maintains the parts warranty.
Most international, national and retailer standards require your VeriVide equipment to be serviced before the annual standard audit, to ensure conformance.
However if you reach 2000 hours use of any of the fluorescent lamps within 12 months, you will need to service at this point, to prevent further deterioration in the light quality. Likewise you may wish to service more often if the grey interior is contaminated or dirty.

How do I book a service?
Complete the Service Request form
or email the Verivide Service team on firstname.lastname@example.org
with your company details including the location of the equipment. We also need the cabinet Serial Number, interior paint colour (N5, N7 or 5574), lamp configuration and date of manufacture. For most cabinets, this information is located on a silver label in the back left corner of the cabinet, below the lamp deck.
VeriVide will then provide a free, no-obligation service quote, usually within 7 days.
Where is the Serial Number located?
Your VeriVide cabinet serial number will be located on a silver label on the inside back wall (left hand corner) of the cabinet, underneath the lamp deck.
The silver label contains information on the interior surface colour (paint code), as well as the cabinet model, serial number and date of manufacture.
The cabinet label may not be present on older equipment or it may have been removed during its lifetime. The model type can be found on the switch panel but not the serial number.
On cabinets older than 2003, you may not have a serial number. At the back of the cabinet, where the mains power cable is plugged in there will be a metal voltage badge with a date stamp, you will need to provide this date to the service team along with the model number on the switch panel.
If the silver label is missing we may still be able to help you, please bear with us if we ask for additional information or photographs.
Why should I use VeriVide lamps?
Genuine VeriVide branded lamps supplied by VeriVide and our official distributors are made to a very tight tolerance to the CIE illuminant data. This ensures that what you see in the light booth or colour assessment cabinet will be the same as what is measured with a Spectrophotometer or DigiEye system.
In much the same way that two 2.0L car engines can perform differently, two light sources claiming to be 840/4000K or D65/ 6500K can present significant deviations in performance.
Like cars, the quality control of two 840 light sources can also differ. One lamp can be made to tight tolerances whereas the other may only be an approximation of the advertised lamp properties.
If you have multiple light boxes on site or even within your supply chain, the difference between quality and appearance of light sources can cause inaccurate results.
Be aware that counterfeit products claiming to be VeriVide lamps are in circulation therefore it is important to buy replacement lamps for VeriVide equipment only from ourselves or our official distributors.
