I have the CES Omega Flex lock, but it won’t read my xNT just yet. I may have to wait a bit longer as I just got my implant about 48 hours ago and there might be some swelling left…
Note, it’s this one:
It already works directly on the PCB with the coils if I remove the cover, which shaves off at most 1mm of distance. So it’s definitely an induction/reception problem. I already removed the protruding part of the rods and solder that made the PCB sit slightly recessed (away) from the plastic cover. This decreased the distance and should improve reception a tiny bit but hasn’t made enough difference. I was wondering whether I could/should sand and polish off some 0.2mm of material off the front of the knob. As long as I don’t go through entirely, this should improve reception.
Anyone else who has the xNT with OmegaFlex lock? Any experiences and/or pointers on modifying this one? If there are none, I’ll see if I can keep this topic updated with steps that I took or progress through reduced swelling. Does anyone both have this lock and a different one with in use with the same xNT? In that case, I’d love to know how they compare.
