Handpiece Activation
The handpieces automatically activate when you lift a handpiece from its holder. Press the
foot control to operate the activated handpiece.
Foot Control
The foot control regulates drive air to the active handpiece. It provides an air signal that
activates air coolant and water coolant flow. The foot control is equipped with a wet/dry
toggle and a chip blower/accessory button (see Figure 4). To turn the water coolant on or off,
use your foot to flip the wet/dry toggle.
NOTE The foot control has additional functionality when used with a deluxe touchpad or an
intraoral camera. The wet/dry toggle operates as a three-way switch with the air and water
coolant buttons on the touchpad.

Chip Blower/
Accessory Button
Wet/Dry Toggle
Chip Blower / Accessory Button
The chip blower/accessory button operates as either a chip blower or an accessory button (see
Figure 4). The chip blower function sends a jet of air through the handpiece without
activating the handpiece bur.
The accessory button function operates integrated accessory devices. For more details, see
your authorized A-dec dealer.
Chair Lockout
The deluxe touchpad inhibits the operation of the A-dec 511 chair when you remove a
handpiece from its holder and step on the foot control. This feature is also available on some
later model Performer® and Cascade® chairs and on systems that include an optional lockout
kit.
Touchpads
A-dec 500 touchpads centralize treatment room controls into one touch surface. Some
touchpad buttons have indicators to alert you if the operation is functioning. For complete
instructions on touchpad operation, see “Touchpad Controls” on page 9.
