Topics of the day -Online preventative maintenance. -Calibration backup -SUI updates -Schick Update
Yearly PM now live on-line also for X-Ray units -Required for 3D units covered by service contracts - Same log-in as for CAD/CAM units - Look for the correct manual for your unit. - Print out the checklist if you wish - Just choose “Imaging Products” on the left
Yearly maintenance (1) Electrical/Mechanical check: (Follow the manual) -Check serial number of unit (bottom right of unit) -Check all buttons and lights and audible tone(s). (Dead-man switch release button).
Yearly maintenance (2) -Electrical check: (Follow the manual) -Measure Power outlet adequacy (voltage drop). -Tip: Can be measured later while you do the dose check in calibration.
Yearly maintenance (3) -Check lasers - Depending on machine there can be one (Galileos) to four (XG3D Ceph) lasers. -Attention: The Galileos laser can be obstructed by headrest (if present). (Take it out now, it must be removed for calibration anyway).
Yearly maintenance (4) All good so far ? Relax… … a minute
Yearly maintenance (5) -Before you start: -Make sure you have all calibration phantoms ! Pin Phantom (XG3D) Geometry Phantom (XG3D, Galileos) Distortion Phantom (Galileos)
Yearly maintenance (7) -Go to sironasupport.com Video page:
Yearly maintenance (8) -Make a backup of the calibration data !!! If you don’t and the calibration fails, the unit will not work anymore.
Yearly maintenance (9) -Go through ALL steps start to finish, regardless if the symbols are green, yellow or red! (Except radiation field). Galileos: Tool can be downloaded from web-site: Sironasupport.com
Yearly maintenance (10) -Perform the Acceptance or Constancy test: -Sidexis -> Utilities -> Acceptance/Constancy test
SUI updates (1) -“SUI update” refers to the installation/upgrade of the “firmware” of any XG/Galileos X-Ray system. Sidexis Manager -> SiXabcon -Attributes -> software update. -Select SW package you want to add. 4.07…4.12
SUI updates (2) Do not pay too much attention to “red” and “green” BUT: Boards that show V00.00 as their actual version might have an issue. There is a third way to update units: Modul-update which can be advantageous. ALWAYS IGNORE: Timout “vermutet” (expected). Wait until update is finished.
SUI updates (2) -When do you need a SUI update? Attention: Sometimes SUIs have to be upgraded in steps… 3D machines: With (almost) every (PC) software update. Spareparts! - come with “random” software loaded, not necessarily matching the unit. Unit old – sparepart new. Unit brand new – sparepart older.
SUI updates (3) -What to do? Update/downgrade the spare part to unit Software? Update the unit to (newer) spare part Software? This can both be dangerous!!! Older SW might not support newer units/parts, upgrading to newest SUI might lead to malfunctions with (older) PC software. CALL SIRONA Technical service!!
