  • Acción
    Siemens issued a Customer Information letter dated March 21, 2010. There were two safety issues. There were two occurrences of smoke caused by an overheating of the power supply during patient treatment. Also, there had been a report of an unexpected lowering of the 550TxT table in patient rescue mode. With the released kit that accompanies this letter, Siemens has implemented a minor modification on the 550TxT to include an additional fuse within the power supply circuit to address the first issue described above. They also included an additional modification to address the lowering of the table by the integration of additional relays. As soon as the "move enable" button is released, the table brake will be enabled which is controlled by the implemented relays. No further action is required for the continued operations of the 550TxT table. Further questions regarding this recall please call (925) 246-8407
