  • Acción
    BrainLAB sent Product Notification letters dated 11/12/07 to their VectorVision Sky end users, informing them of the possible overload of electrical cables in VVsky products with Data Billboards and/or microscope integrations and/or Device Connections Panels (Wall Panels). The users were requested to perform an inspection of the medical power supplies and cabling on a regular basis. If anything suspicious is noted, they were directed to shut down the entire system and contact BrainLAB immediately. BrainLAB contacted each account shortly after the sending of the letter to arrange for the installation of small fuses/circuit breakers according to the specific load limits per device, which will open the circuit in case of overload on faulty circuits, and to exchange the low voltage cables that directly connect the medical power supply from 1.5 mm2 to 2.5 mm2 thickness to withstand the full 20 amp current in case of a failure. Any questions were directed to BrainLAB's customer hotline at 1-800-597-5911.
