  • Causa
    During investigations by arjohuntleigh it has been determined that the din connector used on these beds has been compromised during the cable manufacturing process. the supplier has determined that liquid droplets have been found inside the male din connector. this substance has been identified as phosphorous that is leaching from the black plastic flame reduction material used in the din connector. the effects of this can lead to a high resistance (ohm) connection between the pins and could result in the beds performing uncommanded movements.
  • Acción
    Customers are requested to remove beds from use and contact the ArjoHuntleigh Service Line immediately if at any time a Contoura 380 or 480 bed performs uncommanded movement. An ArjoHuntleigh Technician will attend each facility to replace any defective DIN connectors. DIN Connectors with production batch date of October or November 2010 will need to be replaced. DIN Connectors with production batch date of January 2011 and February 2011 will undergo a Megger test which will determine if the connector needs to be replaced. This action has been closed-out on 19/05/2016.
