Wireless Detector Handling

Wireless Detector Handling Customer Service Information Summary The wireless detector is part of a digital image acquisition Do not hit the detector surface in any way. • chain in an overall radiological System. Wireless detectors The detector is monitored by integrated shock • are critical and valuable components. The following sensors, so that data can be read out by a technician. instructions will provide you with more information on how to handle your wireless detectors for an optimal usage and maximized lifetime. General safety information Caution! Caution! Caution! Do not spill liquid or chemicals onto the detector or, • in cases where the patient is injured, allow it to become wet with blood or other body fluids, as doing so may What is the shock sensor? result in fire or electric shock. In such situation, protect the detector with a single use plastic bag. Shock sensors are built into the detectors to detect impact Do not pour or spray the detector directly for • forces that could affect the detectors functionality. cleaning and disinfection purposes. Two different shock levels exist: Notes on handling the detector Level 1 = Gives indication of significant shock • (corresponds to a fall of appr. 20 cm height [~8in.]) Handle the detector carefully, as it may be damaged if Level 2 = Gives even stronger indication of significant • • hit or dropped. shock (corresponds to a fall of appr. 70 cm height Be sure to use the detector unit on a flat place so it will [~28in.]) • not bend.

Detector cover breaks because patient is too heavy Possible injury of patient or personnel by carbon or glass splinters or electrical shock: When the detector is broken do not use it. Cleaning and disinfecting of the detector • Use the detector protector for patients heavier than For surface disinfecting of the detector, we recommend • 100 kg (maximum 250 kg) to avoid such problems using liquid solutions of a commercially available (order number 10847254). surfactant disinfectant based on the following ingredient classes: The following active ingredient classes can be used: Guanidine derivatives (such as Floracin N) • Quaternary compounds (e.g. biguanide surface) • Peroxide compounds (e.g. Apesin AP 100, Dismozon • plus, Sanosil) Picture 1: Detector protector The use of agents based on chlorine derivatives and alcohol can lead to material damage and are not recommended. The charge contact plate on the back of the detector must be completely dry before the detector is returned to the docking station. Otherwise, the detector will not charge sufficiently and the charge contact surfaces may corrode. It is recommended to clean the back of the detector first so that it has more time to dry while the front is being cleaned.
