How Can You Combine Devices?
• Controls on the Telemetry Device (e.g. nurse call) will be inactive when the device is directly
connected to the monitor except in the case when the monitor has no network connection and data
are transferred via the telemetry device. See the "Enhancing Telemetry Monitoring with the
Assigning a Telemetry Transceiver with an SRR Adapter to a Monitor
Monitors which have this capability have a short range radio symbol
A telemetry device with a short range radio adapter can be assigned to a monitor directly. To assign a
telemetry device to a monitor:
Press the Check button on the telemetry device.
The measurement selection key on the monitor will change to show the "assign telemetry" icon
Select the assign telemetry icon.
In the Assign Telemetry Device menu, select the correct equipment label for the
Check that the assignment is successful and that transmission has begun:
• A Tele Device assigned message appears on the monitor
• a tone sounds at the telemetry device and the Laeds Off indicators light
• the ECG wave appears on the monitor
To confirm that the correct telemetry device has been assigned, open the ECG Setup menu. The title
of the menu contains the equipment label of the telemetry device; check that this is the correct label.
If a monitor is already paired to another device, you cannot assign a telemetry device to that monitor.
If the telemetry device goes out-of-range or loses the short range radio connection, it will switch over to
standard telemetry transmission to the Information Center. In this case, the telemetry data is displayed
in the Telemetry Data Window as described above.
If a monitor is manually paired with a telemetry device with a short range radio adapter, the short range
radio assignment will be automatically made.
If a telemetry device disappears from the list in the Assign Telemetry Device menu, press the
Check button on the telemetry device again. If the monitor is not configured to be used with a
telemetry device, the "assign telemetry" icon will appear crossed out
If the devices are unpaired, the short range radio connection will be ended.
Short range radio connections are subject to interruption due to interference from other radio sources
in the vicinity, including microwaves, bluetooth devices and DECT phones. Outside the operating
frequency band and 5% above and below, i.e. the exclusion band according IEC 60601-1-2, section
36.202.3a)4), the short range radio connection is immune up to 3V/m in the frequency range from 80
MHz to 2.0 GHz and up to 1V/m in the frequency range from 2.0 to 2.3 GHz. Depending on the
strength and duration of the interference, the interruption may occur for an extended period. A loss of
connection, due to moving out-of-range, interference, or for other reasons, is indicated with a
TELE DISCONNECT INOP.
