3 Basic Operation
Telemetry
When the monitor recognizes a connected Avalon CL or Avalon CTS interface cable (red or black
connector), it confirms the recognition with the following status indicators displayed in the lower
right-hand corner of the screen:
Indicator
Avalon CL
A base station is connected to the monitor, but
the base station is in Standby mode.
A base station is connected to the monitor but
no cableless transducers and no cableless Pods
are currently active. All are still docked at the
base station, or the base station holds no
transducers.
A base station is connected to the monitor, it is
on, and minimum one assigned cableless
transducer or cableless Pod is active.
A CL transducer has moved away from the
base station and is approaching the limit of the
area of reach (ca. min. 100 m/300 ft in line of
sight). The US sound is replaced by an artificial
QRS sound (like DECG). The DECG and
MECG waves are no longer displayed.
NOTE
A CL transducer is considered still active, even if it has an INOP condition (e.g.
it is either deactivated by docking it at the base station, or until it is manually removed from the
window.
Info
CL transducers have priority over wired transducers. If an Avalon CL or Avalon CTS base station is
connected to the fetal monitor, and both wired and CL transducers are connected to the monitor, the
wired transducers are disabled whenever one CL transducer is active. If a CL Pod is activated it does
not automatically deactivate all wired transducers, just the one with the corresponding measurement.
To switch back to using wired transducers, switch the base station to Standby mode, or redock the
CL transducers at the base station, and continue monitoring with the wired transducers. If you cannot
get sufficient ultrasound signal quality using the Avalon CTS base station, try repositioning the
transducers, or switch to wired transducers. Using a Avalon CL base station you should get a better
signal by reducing the distance between the CL transducer and the base station.
When using an Avalon CL or Avalon CTS you should be aware that monitoring FMP is not
recommended when the mother is likely to move, and you should disable Fetal Movement Profile
(FMP) on the fetal monitor (
likely to create artifact in the FMP output. See also "Switching FMP On and Off " on page 148,
the sections "Cableless Monitoring - Important Considerations" on page 142 and "Fetal
Movement Profile" on page 147.
With the Avalon CL Transducer System you can now monitor twins and triplets with
CL transducers. The Avalon CTS System does not have this option.

Avalon CTS
Avalon CTS interface cable is connected to the
monitor, but the Avalon CTS base station is not
connected to the interface cable, or it is
disconnected from AC mains, or is in Standby
mode.
Avalon CTS interface cable is connected to the
monitor, Avalon CTS base station is connected,
powered on, and cableless transducers are ready
to use, but no cableless transducers are currently
active (all are still docked at the base station).
Avalon CTS interface cable is connected to the
monitor, Avalon CTS base station is connected,
powered on, and at least one cableless
transducer is active and assigned.
Not applicable for Avalon CTS.
