The table below indicates the maximum probe temperature.


 

Probe

Max Temp (°C) (Simulated use)

Max Temp (°C) (Still air)

Vscan Air CL – Curved array transducer (for deep scanning)

40.5

45.3

Vscan Air CL – Linear array transducer (for shallow scanning)

41.1

44.8

    Maximum Vscan Air CL temperature



NOTE: Measurement uncertainty and probe variation: 2.0 °C.
NOTE: The probe will stop scanning, if exceeding an applied part surface temperature of 43°C
NOTE: Lens temperature is measured under conditions per IEC 60601-2-37, Ed2.1
  • Thermocouple was placed at the geometric center of the lens
  • Thermal phantom at not less than 33°C or in the range 20-33°C for external probes. Maximum Vscan Air CL temperature rise is measured and added to 33°C. Maximum Vscan Air CL temperature (Simulated use) is <43°C.
  • With Vscan Air CL transmitting in air, temperature rise is measured and added to 23°C. Maximum Vscan Air CL temperature (Still air) is <50°C. Lens temperature is monitored for 30 minutes.
NOTE: Vscan Air CL placed in contact with a thermal phantom made of tissue-mimicking material is referenced in IEC60601-2-37, Ed2.1
  • Auto-freeze capability is disabled during these measurements.
