1 Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Rigel Uni-Therm Electrosurgical Analyser.
The new high performance Rigel Uni-Therm accurately measures the
performance of electrosurgical generators.
Measurements include; high
frequency leakage, high power current and power distribution, and patient return
plate alarm testing. A newly designed ultra-low inductive load bank provides
highly accurate and stable test conditions at high frequency currents.
Utilising a large, full colour graphical display, the Rigel Uni-Therm is a fully standalone electrosurgical analyser that can offer true intuitive, user friendly operation
and operator safety.
Tests can be carried out on an individual basis (see chapter 2) and as part of an
automatic sequence (see chapter 3). Data can be stored, viewed and transferred
from within the instrument (see chapter 4). Customisation of the Rigel Uni-Therm
can be carried out in the setup (see chapter 6).
1.1 Analyser Functions

automatically and manually;




Power Test (W, mA rms, V peak and crest factor)
HF Leakage (mA rms)
Peak and Peak to Peak voltage
Plate Security (CQM) or return electrode monitoring (REM)
For the power test, an internal array of resistors provide a safe variable load of 05115Ω in 5Ω steps; enabling the production of accurate and detailed power
distribution curves, with an instant tabular view of test results.
A unique feature of the HF leakage test is on screen graphics illustrating correct
test connection configurations, complete with user set pass fail limits.
The plate security (CQM) test offers a unique isolated, motor driven
potentiometer, which provides a continuous swept resistance change; enabling

3 Getting started
The Rigel Uni-Therm has been designed to ensure that the user is able to test:
quickly, easily and safely. The interfaces to the Rigel Uni-Therm have been
segregated into a high-voltage area (side panel) and a safe low voltage area
(front panel). This arrangement also ensures that test leads carrying high
frequency power are kept as short as possible, and
directly facing the equipment under test.
3.1 Connecting your Analyser
Elevate the Rigel Uni-Therm on its two hinged
feet at the front base.
Ensure none of the large base and rear
ventilation inlets are obstructed during
operation,
3.2 Rear panel
Connect the mains cable to the IEC connector on the rear panel.
3.3 Simulation connection panel
For automatic control during HF leakage and Power tests, connect the ESU
footswitch COAG and CUT contacts to the blue and yellow terminals.
It is strongly advised to always use the Rigel Uni-Therm’s built-in, automatic
control rather than manually switching the output of the electrosurgical
diathermy machine under test.
For CQM / plate security test use the black terminals.

Rigel Medical Uni-Therm user Manual V1.4
15 Appendix D Creating a power reference curve
The Rigel Uni-Therm is able to automatically compare the
measured power distribution graph against a preset template or
reference curve. You will require two reference curves, one for
the upper and one for the lower limits.
Open the file ‘refgraphtemplate.csv' available at:
http://www.rigelmedical.com/rigel-downloads?id=Application
Notes
[REFGRAPH] and [END] must remain at the beginning and end of the file.
“Upper Curve” is the name of the graph and can be changed. This will be the
name of your graph once uploaded to the Rigel Uni-Therm.
10 is the number of points on the graph, this can be changed but the lines of data
must reflect this number.
Column A is the X axis, and represents the Load (Ω). Column B is the Y axis
and represents the Power (W). In this example, line 3 is a plot of 25W at 35Ω.
Once you have completed plotting the points in the CSV file, select File and then
Save As. Save the file with a recognisable name including RefGraph and with a
.sss extension, e.g. RefGraph.sss.
A Rename message should appear as you have changed the file extensive from
csv to sss
Follow the instructions in this manual to upload the reference graphs;
To use the uploaded reference curves, go to MENU / SETUP / TEST
SEQUENCES. Then either add a new test sequence, or edit an existing test
sequence as covered in this manual.
