Maintenance recommendations
Cleaning
The bioPLUX equipment and sensors should be visually checked before each use to ensure that no mechanical damage has occurred.
• The bioPLUX equipment and sensors (including the cables) should be cleaned with a slightly damp cloth or suitable absorbent paper,
ensuring that no liquid enters the equipment or sensors. Do not use detergent or any type of cleaning liquid.
• Clean the bioPLUX equipment separately from the sensors
• Do not clean or re-use detection surfaces. They are only suitable for single use, and should be disposed of after usage.
•
Transport and storage
• When the equipment and accessories are not being used, they should be stored in the original box in a dry place:
– Relative humidity: up to 95% with no condensation
– Ambient temperature: 10ºC to 30ºC
– Atmospheric pressure between 500 hPa and 1060hPa
• Whenever the equipment needs to be transported, it should be placed in the original box, since this was designed and tested to ensure the equipment
and accessories are securely stored;
• Take care while handling the bag and avoid dropping it, since the device is not shock-proof and should not be placed under stress or sudden acceleration.
PLUX can not be held responsible if the system is transported outside it’s original box or in any other type of unsuitable packaging, which may invalidate the guarantee.

Indications & Warnings
User Manual and Software
To download the software and latest user manual go to:
http://www.biosignalsplux.com/learn/documentation
Do not open the bioPLUX or its accessories. The repair of the same should
be only done by properly authorized PLUX personnel.
Intended Use
By connecting the bioPLUX to the transformer for batteries recharge,
place the device so that the cable is free, away from places where it
can be walked on or damaged. Make sure the cable does not obstruct
the passage of people.
Research Use Only, not for Use in Diagnostic Procedures. biosignalsplux
products are intended for use in life science education and research ap
plications; they are not medical devices nor are they intended for medical
diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease.
Contraindications
Do not use this device in patients with implanted electronic devices of
any kind, including pace-makers, electronic infusion pumps, stimulators,
defibrillators or similar
Do not apply electrodes over damaged skin.
Do not use the system in patients with allergies to silver.
Warnings and Precautions
See all the documentation that came with the system for instructions on
safety and precaution.
See the User’s Guide for detailed instructions about bioPLUX and sensors.
Always keep the device and its accessories dry. The presence of liquid
contact can compromise the safety operating characteristics of the sys
tem. Do not immerse the sensors or the bioPLUX, nor clean with liquid
or with abrasives. Read the manual to learn how to clean up the bioPLUX
and sensors.
Fragile. Handle with caution. Do not expose the device or accessories to
high accelerations and vibrations.
Do not use this equipment in an environment with operating magnetic
resonance imaging devices (MRI).
Do not use the device near the fire or in potentially explosive atmospheres,
such as atmospheres with flammable gas.
The use of damaged accessories or not recommended by PLUX may result
in changes to the technical characteristics and features of your bioPLUX.
Use only approved accessories purchased from PLUX or an PLUX agent.
Use only the detection surfaces provided on the packaging of the system
or acquired from PLUX or an PLUX agent.
The detection surfaces provided are single-user and disposable.
Use only the transformer supplied with the package of the system or
purchased from PLUX or an PLUX agent.
Inspect the sensors on a regular basis to ensure that they remain in good
working order.
If you experience any kind of discomfort or skin irritation when using the
clinical bioPLUX, discontinue using it immediately.
Use the sensor cables with extreme caution to avoid risk of strangulation.
The bioPLUX may suffer or cause interference to other equipment with
radio receiver / transmitters, even those that comply with international
standards. Keep a safe distance between the bioPLUX and other devices
to ensure their proper functioning. The bioPLUX should not be used in
noisy environments in relation to RF radiation wich can cause communi cation failures with the computer.
If your bioPLUX stops working properly, do not use it until you send it
for repair by qualified PLUX personnel.
Complies with Requirements put forth by the Medical Device Directive
93/42/EEC. Class I device, Annex VII.
Type BF Device (IEC 60601-1)
Isolated device. (Class II, EEC 60601-1)
In compliance with the European Directive on Waste of Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE) 2002/96/EC, do not deposit the bioPLUX
in the trash. Instead, contact your Reseller or PLUX for properly recycle
your bioPLUX. You can get information about the contact nearest to you
in http://www.plux.info.
Date of Manufacturing (appears on product packaging).
Serial Number (appears on product packaging and bioPLUX).
The bioPLUX device should be used at temperatures between 10º and
40ºC and stored at temperatures between 10º and 30ºC because it has
rechargeable Li-Ion batteries and detection surfaces with limitations
on operating temperatures. Operating or storing the device outside this
range may compromise the integrity and security of it.
This equipment complies with International Standard EN 60601-1-2:2001
for electromagnetic compatibility for medical equipment and systems.
This pattern is used to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a typical medical environment. However, the proliferation
of devices using radio frequencies can cause interference that can reach
the limit to prevent the proper functioning of your bioPLUX. Keep your
equipment installed in accordance with their instructions.
Use bioPLUX within the limits of communication with the receiving
equipment of the wireless signal: in a radius of approximately 10 meters
for the Bluetooth connection. Working with the device outside of this
range of communication can lead to data loss and faulty communica tions. See user manual for more details.
Do not place the device in the microwave.
If the bioPLUX system or accessories reach uncomfortable temperatures,
turn off the bioPLUX immediately and contact Technical Support.
Do not insert objects into the holes of the device, it may affect the operating characteristics, and safety.
