Do not use nonmedical peripherals, such as report printers, within 1.5 m (5 ft) of a patient,
unless the nonmedical peripherals receive power from an isolated power outlet on the Philips
ultrasound system, or from an isolation transformer that meets medical safety standards, as
defined by standard IEC 60601-1.
The system and patient-applied parts meet the standard IEC 60601-1. Applied voltages
exceeding the standard, although unlikely, may result in electrical shock to the patient or
Connection of optional devices not supplied by Philips Ultrasound could result in electrical
shock. When such optional devices are connected to your ultrasound system, ensure that the
total system earth leakage current does not exceed 500 µA.
To avoid risk of electrical shock, do not use any transducer that has been immersed beyond
the specified cleaning or disinfection level.
To avoid risks of electrical shock and fire hazards, inspect the system power cord and plug
regularly. Ensure that they are not damaged in any way.
Do not drape the power cord over any of the cable hooks or the handle on the system cart.
Damage to the cord or power receptacle unit can occur if the cart is raised.
Operating the system with physio input signals that are below the specified minimum levels
may cause inaccurate results. See the
