  • Causa
    When the system is driving over a non-conductive floor and then over a conductive, grounded part, proper control of the drive behaviour may not be possible. the system can be stopped by releasing the drive handle. proper behaviour is re-enabled when the system is rebooted. the hazard associated to this defect is the potential of a collision.
  • Acción
    Philips is preparing a field action kit, which will allow a Philips Service Engineer to replace the existing arrestor strap by a new arrestor with higher resistivity. This will reduce the electromagnetic pulse to a level, which is safe to not disturb the electronics. Users are advised not to try to correct unintended movement using the controls on the drive handle. Instead, stop the system immediately by releasing the drive handle entirely. Alternatively, the emergency button can be pressed. Take special care when the system crosses metal strips or plates on the floor or enters an elevator, as these are situations where electrostatic discharge is likely to occur. This action has been closed-out on 18/08/2016.
