  • Causa
    Some units did not pass the high voltage test during the final checking of the fabius by the manufacturer. investigations carried out revealed that on some power supply units, the required minimum clearance between an electrical component and the unit housing was not maintained. under the influence of mechanical forces (e.G., movement of the device), this may result in small bypass currents flowing in the interior of the unit which in extreme cases cause failure of the automatic ventilation function of the device. when such faults occur, the standard required manual ventilation is possible, an acoustic alarm is generated and the indicators on the device flash.
  • Acción
    As an interim measure, Draeger Medical is advising users to switch over to manual ventilation mode should users experience a failure of the automatic ventilation function. The power supply units will be replaced as a permanent correction.
