Brief operating instruction ALPHASTAR
Control of functions:
The electrohydraulically driven functions of the operating table may be controlled by
cable-connected hand control
optional infrared hand control
optional foot switch
emergency control switch (override)
LED for connecting to the mains:
green blinking signal when the operating
table is connected to the mains and the
control system is switched on.
OFF: the operating table is switched off,
all functions are stopped immediately
LOCK: Table locked
yellow LED: when the operating
table is locked.
Patient orientation: normal direction
the green LED lights up
BACKW.: travelling device backward
(works only with built-in kit
motor-driven castor 1132.60A)
TREND: table top - Trendelenburg
UP: table top up
TILT L.: lateral tilt left
BACK UP: back plate up
LEG UP: leg plate up
FLEX: Flex position
(kidney/gall bladder elevation)
controls the functions inclination and back
alternately until the flex position is achieved.
LED for battery charge level:
blinking red signal when the batteries of the
operating table need to be recharged as
soon as possible.
When the control system is switched
on, the yellow LED lights up: the
functions can be controlled by pressing
UNLOCK: Table unlocked
red LED lights up: the operating table is
standing on its castors and can be
Patient orientation: reverse direction
the yellow LED lights up
FORW.: travelling device forward
(works onlywith built-in kit
motor-driven castor 1132.60A)
REV.: table top - reverse Trendelenburg
DOWN.: table top down
TILT R.: lateral tilt right
BACK DN: back plate down
LEG DN: leg plate down
REFLEX: Reflex position
controls the functions back and inclination
alternately until a V-position is achieved.
LEVEL: for horizontal alignment
of the table top
The back plate, seat plate and leg plate adjustments are motor-driven. The head rest is adjusted manually.
The head rest may be attached at either end of the operating table, thus providing two possible patient
orientations on the operating table.
NORMAL orientation (Fig. 1)
REVERSE orientation (Fig. 2)
Fig. 1: NORMAL orientation with patient
up to 500 lbs (225 kg)
Fig 2: REVERSE orientation with patient
up to 300 lbs (135 kg)
Do not use this table for patients exceeding the 500-pound limit (225 kg). For patients weighing up 300 lbs
(135 kg) all surgical interventions are possible in both patient orientations on the locked table.
For patients weighing between 300 lbs up to a maximum of 500 lbs (135 to 225 kg), surgical procedures
are only permissible with the normal patient orientation on the locked table.
Displacement of the table with patient up to 300 lbs (135 kg) is allowed only with maximum height of the
table top of 39 inches (1m)
In case of errors the function in question can be stopped immediately by either pressing the key for
the opposite movement or switching off the control system (OFF).
Particularly accessory units with high weights or long lever arms (such as retractor systems etc.) may
cause damage to the side rails.
In case of failure of the hand control or the electronic control for
instance, the most important functions can be controlled via the
control panel at the upper column casing (override system).
For detail information refer to operating instruction GA113201GB04.
