About the System
The optional Keep Maximum SID function keeps the detector in the maximum SID position, to prevent
it from hitting objects while performing APC movements. Recalling a stand position may cause a
collision. If necessary, stop the recall function and position the stand manually.
3.1.5 Collision Prevention Override
You can override collision prevention function in the following situations.
Smart BodyGuard Override
You can override the BodyGuard function if it is blocking motorized stand movements that may be
caused by equipment used around the patient and table, for example ECG cables. This function is called
Smart BodyGuard Override. It is the responsibility of the operator to ensure that collisions with the
patient or equipment do not occur while the override function is active.
To activate the Smart BodyGuard Override function after a movement is blocked by the BodyGuard,
release the movement switch and reactivate it within 5 seconds.
When you activate the override function, a message is displayed in the status area, and a repeating
beep sound can be heard. The maximum movement speed during override is reduced compared to
normal movements. The override function is deactivated and normal movements are available again if
the requested movement is no longer being limited by the BodyGuard sensor.
NOTE Smart BodyGuard Override is a configurable function and it may not be enabled on every
Table Height Collision Override
If you need to perform CPR, you can override the force sensor that stops table height and tilt
The table is equipped with a force sensor measuring the force vertically applied to the surface of the
tabletop. Normally the measured force is determined by the patient weight. During motorized
movement, if a collision force exceeding the safety threshold is detected, the movement stops and is
To override the force sensor, release the table tilt switch or table height switch and then re-apply the
switch movement within 5 seconds to continue the movement. If no switch movements are performed
within 5 seconds, override mode is deactivated and table movements are stopped.
NOTE There are no audible signals during table height collision override mode.
3.1.6 Intelligent Collision Protection
Intelligent Collision Prevention (iCP) prevents collisions between the tabletop, the X-ray tube, and the
stand. In a biplane system, iCP also prevents collisions between the frontal stand and the lateral stand.
When the distance between the tabletop and stand becomes too small, a collision is prevented by
stopping motorized stand movements (except for motorized detector shift movement).
The iCP function allows you to resume movement and decrease the distance between the table and
stand in a controlled way:
• A small movement step is made when the calculated distance decreases further during the
• When the calculated distance remains the same during the movement, the movement continues at
• When the calculated distance increases during the movement, the movement continues at normal
