ARM MAINTENANCE
Very little maintenance should be required for your PDI Arm to give years of trouble free service if the following lubrication
and inspection procedures are followed.
1. INSPECTION - Occasionally check the elbow swivel joint for any evidence of bending or distortion due to a patient
using the ARM for assistance in getting in or out of bed or any other misuse. If the ARM is not mounted with thesupport
tube assembly absolutely vertical, it will have a tendency to drift and will not properly counter balance the television. Be
certain that the support tube assembly that the arm is mounted to is vertical.
2. SPRING ADJUSTMENT - The gas spring in this arm support a specific weight range for the model construction. These
springs are not "adjustable. The pivot points for some arm models can be moved to alter the weight capacity. Please
contact the manufacturer for details. Otherwise the gas springs will have to be changed to alter the weight capacity of the
arm.
3. LUBRICATION - At least once a year a drop of light machine oil should be put on each pivot point in the nose, elbow,
and base. DO NOT PUT OIL ON THE FRICTION DAMPER PADS!
4. REPLACEMENT OF COAX CABLE - See cable replacement procedure in the full maintenance manual for your arm.
5. TORQUE ADJUSTMENT OF PIVOT SCREWS - All screws in the ARM are tightened securely, and Loctite, at the
factory and do not require specific checks with a torque wrench. IF THE THREADS ARE STRIPPED IN THE NOSE,
ELBOW, OR BASE, THAT PART NEEDS REPLACEMENT - DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY.
