Stimuplex® Dig RC Function Test
Before operating and using the device, the appropriate safety and
performance tests must be carried out.
1.1
Function Tests
Fit in the battery and turn on the device (current regulator from
“0“ to “I“):
– the red LED “Batt“ will flash briefly for control
– the digital display indicates the initial value “0.2 mA“
– a brief audio signal (beep) sounds
Switch over the toggle switch repeatedly:
– the audio signal sounds in synchrony with the selected
frequency (e.g. 1 Hz = 1 signal/sec. and
2 Hz = 2 signals/sec. respectively)
Slowly increase the current regulator and observe the indicators:
– the digital display flashes and indicates the present
current value
– the maximum current adjustment is 5.0 mA
– the frequency of the signal changes proportionally to
the preselected current value
The yellow LED should not light up at any setting of the current
regulator during an open circuit.
1.2
Function Tests with shorted Electrode Cable
Short the contacts at the ends of the electrode cable
(insert the closed alligator clip into the black socket in order to
close the circuit by connecting the contacts):
– the yellow LED flashes and the digital display stops
flashing and indicates the current
If the yellow LED does not light when the cable ends are shorted,
the cable connection is defective and the cable set should be
replaced.
(For replacement of the integrated electrode cable see point 4 of
the service manual.)
The Function Tests should be conducted before each use
(Please see also User´s Manual “Short Test Stimuplex® Dig RC“,
page 6).
In case of functional failure, the unit should be checked by
technical staff according to the technical safety test instructions outlined as follows.

2.
Instructions for technical safety tests
In section 6 of the “Medical Products-Operating Instructions“
technical safety tests must be done.
These tests can only be performed by qualified staff
(section 6 para. 4 MPBetreibV) according to the following protocols.
The following measuring and diagnostic instruments are necessary:
– oscilloscope (storage oscilloscope)
– voltmeter
– resistor (load resistance) 1000 ohms
– battery 9 volt
2.1
Check the external condition of the device:
– housing is clean and undamaged. If there is any contamination with blood or drugs the housing must be
disinfected
– labels are legible
– dials (current regulator, frequency switch) work
– cable set is functional, and visually check the electrode
cable for any damage
2.2
Operate through the checking instructions according
1.1 and 1.2
2.3
Check and observe the output signal (pulsed current)
All tests must be done to avoid faults and are performed only with
a 9 volt battery correctly installed.
Blank off the electrode cable to a load resistance of 1000 ohms
and connect the oscilloscope in parallel to the load resistance.
Adjust a time base of 0.1 msec. and a front-end area (incoming
area) of 1 V / div.
Set a pulsed current of 5.0 mA with the current regulator on the
device and check the output signal with the oscilloscope:
– impulse form
monophasic rectangular impulse
– impulse width
0.1 msec.
(± 10 %)
– impulse amplitude 5.0 volt (Vp) (± 10 %)
– impulse frequency 1 Hz and 2 Hz (± 10 %)
Set further current values according to chart 1 and carry out a
check with the oscilloscope. The voltage drop of the load resistance corresponds to the preselected current.

Check the monitoring functions
Digital display and yellow LED (current monitoring):
Slowly increase the current when the load resistance is switched
on and check the digit repetition of the digital display:
– the display is 3 digits until 4.99 mA, from 5.0 mA
onwards it is 2 digits
– the yellow LED is flashing for each current impulse
– the prolonged audio signal (beep) is proportional to the
selected current
Deenergize the load resistance and slowly increase the current
again, observe the digital display:
– digital display is flashing on the whole area
– shortened audio signal
– yellow LED should not light up at any setting
– a monophasic rectangular impulse of about 40 Vp with
inclined negative edge is seen on the oscilloscope
Audio signal (frequency and current observation):
– sounds with each current impulse
– frequency of the audio signal is proportional to the
selected current
– brief audio signal during an open circuit, long audio
signal when the circuit is closed
Red LED “Batt“ (Battery voltage check):
– is flashing briefly when the device is turned on
– is flashing when battery voltage drops below 5.6 V
Check the battery voltage:
The battery needs to be replaced during the performance of the
Technical Safety Test. Verify the battery voltage with the voltmeter
after the device has been switched on.
2.5
Check the accessories
Remote Control:
Connect the Remote Control with the 3-polar plug of the
Stimuplex® Dig RC and turn on the device:
6
– digital display indicates the initial value of 0.2 mA
(± 10 %)
– press the “Up“ button of the RC until the final value of
5.0 mA is reached. Duration: 20 sec.
– press the “Down“ button of the RC until the initial value
of 0.2 mA is reached. Duration: 20 sec.
If the time for achieving the initial or final value is exceeded or has
fallen below it significantly, the RC is defective and has to be sent
back for repair.
3.
A report of the technical safety tests must be made
(see appendix) and retained for the next safety regulation control (section 6, para. 3 MPBetreibV).
In case of a detected fault the device must be sent back to the
manufacturer.
4.
Replacement of the electrode cable
A defective electrode cable may also be replaced by the hospital’s
electronic and biomedical engineering department (EBME). (Code
number of the substitude electrode cable: 4892917B)
Position the Stimuplex® Dig RC on a soft base and turn the device
with its bottom panel at the top:
– remove rubber stoppers from the botton panel
– unscrew the 4 screws of the bottom panel with a screwdriver for recessed-head screws
– pull off the bottom panel carefully upwards and position
it side by side to the device (take care of the batteryconnecting cable!)
– disconnect the electrode cable plug from the plate and
take the electrode cable out of the clamping arrangement of the front panel
– press the new electrode cable with its rubber bushing
into the clamping arrangement of the front panel and
adjust the cable position
– take care of the coding, do not use excessive force;
attach the plug of the electrode cable to the counter
plug on the plate
– replace the bottom panel carefully to seal. Take care
that no cables are being squashed (battery cable)
– screw in the four screws of the botton panel
7
– reinsert the rubber stoppers
– carry out an operation check according to point 1.2.
