4 S y s t e m S e t u p Array Transducers Connect an array transducer to any of the three available array ports. Caution: You must freeze the system before connecting or disconnecting a transducer. Note: When transducer connectors are being attached to or disconnected from the system, resistance may be encountered due to the special shielding material inside the connectors.
4 S y s t e m S e t u p Protective Transducer Holder Caution: Transducer holders have variable sizes, both in depth and diameter. To avoid transducer damage, you must use the holder or insert provided for transducers that have small or large diameter handles or for specialty transducers, such as endocavity transducers.
4 S y s t e m S e t u p Transducer Cable Management Use the transducer cable hooks to manage one or more transducer cables.
