-Check Instrument: Six 175 msec tones – high, low, high low, high, low -Seal Complete: Two 175 msec tones separated by 175 msec for each Seal Complete event
-Error/System Alert: Two 1/2 second tones separated by 1/2 second for each Error/ System Alert event
REM Contact Quality Monitor:
Acceptable Resistance Range:
REM resistance measurements are ± 10% during RF activation and ± 5% when RF output is not activated.
REM patient return electrode: 5 to 135 ohms or up to a 40% increase in the initial measured contact resistance (which ever is less).
If the measured resistance is outside the acceptable range(s) noted above, a REM fault condition occurs
REM Alarm Activation:
REM patient return electrode: When the measured resistance exceeds the standard range of safe resistance (below 5 ohms or above 135 ohms) or when the initial measured contact resistance increases by 40% (whichever is less), the REM alarm indicator enlarges and flashes red and yellow, a tone sounds twice, and RF output is disabled. The indicator remains illuminated red and yellow until you correct the condition causing the alarm. Then, the indicator illuminates green and RF output is enabled.
The ForceTriad energy platform is equipped with an autobipolar feature that allows for automatic activation of bipolar energy.
Note: The autobipolar electrode function requires the use of the Valleylab E0018 bipolar Instrument cord..
Note: The technical data given in this publication is for general information and are subject to change without notice. Actual configuration on the unit may vary. Contact our sales representatives for a complete list of details.
The autobipolar specifications are:
+ 50%, -14% of full scale activation impedance while keying active at 10 watts or below
± 5% of Full Scale activation impedance while keying inactive
Under maximum power settings and rated load conditions, the ForceTriad energy platform is capable of operating a duty cycle of 25% defined as 10 seconds active and 30 seconds inactive, in any mode for a period of 4 hours.
Use of duty cycles greater than 25% (10 seconds active followed by 30 seconds inactive) will increase the risk that heat build-up under a return electrode may be high enough toinjure the patient. Do not continuously activate for
longer than one minute.
