New service data tool for advanced actuator systems within healthcare

The dependency on adjustable applications and the demand for a high level of efficiency grows steadily in the healthcare sector across the world. Downtime caused by faulty applications can be quite costly. However, a reliable Service Data Tool can keep that to a minimum.

The recent release of LINAK® CO-Link™ enables manufacturers of healthcare applications, such as tables and chairs for surgery and examination, to create an actuator system with up to eight movements. The new Service Data Tool (SDT) supports such multi-channel actuator systems using a CO-Link solution.

Have far more detailed service data
Detailed information about battery condition and charge status can be invaluable. The same goes for information about the status of the actuators in the system.

With the SDT, it is possible not only to get the required information from batteries and actuators – it is also possible to localise strains that eventually can lead to faults or breakdowns if not handled. With a user-friendly interface, it is easy to look through the service report, find prospective faults, and even add information manually for later service visits.

Easy troubleshooting and storage of service documentation

Troubleshooting is easy – even with a CO-Link system of two control boxes. This SDT includes a troubleshooting section with error indication and a log file function allowing you to send for further technical support. This SDT also allows you to save data from all parts of your system. This means that you keep the service data even if the control box or an actuator is replaced, thus maintaining reliable status reports throughout the application’s lifetime.

After the service visit, the SDT allows service technicians to fully document the visit and even add comments about the work done for future service visits.

In other words, start using the Service Data Tool to help ensure application functionality at all times.
