Customer Feedback:

Hello Michel,

Did the install with ease . It seemed to be plug and play for a tech like myself.  Just a little bit of tinkering and i have it all installed .

We are in full production and running smooth. I am completely happy with our Step into the future. The more its runs and we learn the functions i like it more and more. Just being able to hit the reset button and it not count it makes a whole lot of difference. I think everyone who owns or is even thinking of owning a Tb4 or 5 should not even waste there time trying to delay it and purchase the upgrade . I am also glad we decided to go with the whole package instead of just the sensor / light source upgrade. The counter functions and touch screen would be hard to work without it now!

Thank You,

Lucas Parmenter
