There are two different versions of TS1. Originally there is TS1, which was discontinued during 2019 and replaced by TS1 (G2) – occasionally referred to as TS1 rev.2.
This is how to check which version is connected to your Windows PC:Unable to load DLL ‘CPenCore.dll’
Unable to load DLL ‘CPenCore.dll’: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)
This and similar error(s) may be caused by missing dependencies. As a first step a clean reinstall is recommended to make sure all dependencies are correctly installed.Battery maintenance
Your device is designed to perform well in a wide range of ambient temperatures, with 62° to 72° F (16° to 22° C) as the ideal comfort zone. It’s especially important to avoid exposing your device to ambient temperatures higher than 95° F (35° C), which can permanently damage battery capacity.
If you want to store your device long term (e.g. summer breaks), two key factors will affect the overall health of your battery: the environmental temperature and the percentage of charge on the battery when it’s powered down for storage. Therefore, we recommend the following:
• Do not fully charge or discharge the battery – charge to around 50%.
• Power down the device.
• Store in a cool moist-free environment less than 90° F (32° C).
• Top up charge to 50% every 3 months.
Do not run battery completely flat and do not leave product connected to charger when fully charged.
If TS1 seems to connect properly to the computer (as seen in Device Manager) but still doesn’t connect to C-PEN Core app – please check Camera Privacy settings (applies to Windows 10).
