  • Causa
    Philips has recently performed evaluations of the mobile detector holder and has identified a potential issue that may affect the performance of the equipment under certain conditions. if the lock mechanism of the movable clamp of the mobile detector holder is not adjusted properly or not secured, the portable detector can drop down when the moveable clamp is at the bottom (below of the detector) and additional force is applied. this may happen when the detector is rotated clockwise from landscape to portrait position.The wireless portable detector (wpd) is fixed in the mobile detector holder via a lock mechanism. the 4 countersunk screws, that are used to attach the lock mechanism, can become loose. if this happens and the mechanism fails, the detector may fall down when the holder is rotated 90° clockwise from landscape.
