  • Causa
    Under certain conditions, x-ray release on artis system version vc1x may get blocked. thepotential malfunction may only occur if:a) the system is ready for operation, andb) the c-arm was moved into the so called "patient transfer position" for patient transfer (in this position x-ray is blocked), andc) at the same time the c-arm is in "patient transfer position", a hardware failure in the ias (image acquisition system) is occurring.If the c-arm is moved out of the "patient transfer position" (the problem with the ias was solved by the system itself), x-ray remains blocked.This issue is known to have only occurred on a single system in the field.
