INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
For use only with:
Starion Cautery Instruments and Starion PowerPack™ Footswitch
The UPS (Universal Power Supply) is a non-sterile, reusable, AC powered unit intended to be used only with Starion Cautery Instruments and
PowerPack Footswitch. The UPS (Universal Power Supply) is intended to be connected to AC power via a grounded hospital grade power
cord and features an on/off switch and green power-on LED indicator. Depending on the device used, up to three operating heat ranges are
available. There are 3 heat ranges available from the UPS (Universal Power Supply) with corresponding tones indicating the power level of the
instruments heating element. A low frequency tone indicates the use of low heat. An interrupted low tone indicates the use of variable heat, and
a higher frequency tone indicates the use of high heat levels. If the user chooses not to install and use the PowerPack Footswitch, the UPS
(Universal Power Supply) will supply power at the variable heat level only. The UPS (Universal Power Supply) may be placed on a flat nonsterile surface adjacent to the sterile field, or may be suspended from a nearby IV pole.

Instructions For Use
Do not touch electrosurgical (Bovie) electrode to Starion Instruments.
1. Connect grounded, Hospital Grade power cord to the UPS AC connector.
Procedures using instruments for cutting/cauterization should be performed only by persons having adequate training and familiarity with
these surgical techniques. Consult the medical literature relative to techniques, complications and hazards prior to performance of any
procedure. Surgeons using this device should be familiar with the specific anatomy of the region in which they intend to perform the
2. Plug the power cord into a grounded Hospital Grade receptacle.
3. After aligning the keyed portion of the connector, insert the connector of the Starion Cautery Instrument into the Instrument connector of
the UPS (Universal Power Supply).
If using the Ultra Slim device, see Instructions For Use for pre-check information.
4. If the PowerPack Footswitch is to be used, plug it into the Footswitch connector of the UPS (Universal Power Supply).
No user serviceable parts.
5. Turn on the UPS (Universal Power Supply).
Note: The UPS (Universal Power Supply) is not intended for continuous use. A typical duty cycle of approximately five (5) seconds on, ten (10)
seconds off is recommended. If the UPS (Universal Power Supply) is used continuously, or the instrument connector becomes shorted, the
output of the UPS (Universal Power Supply) may be interrupted. This will be indicated by an absence of audible tone. Attempt to determine the
cause of the problem before proceeding. If problem cannot be resolved or power is not restored after several minutes of cool-down, contact
Starion Instruments for instructions regarding repair or replacement of the device.
6. Refer to the appropriate Starion Cautery Instrument and PowerPack Footswitch, if applicable, Instructions For Use for device specific
use instructions and pre-check requirements.
7. When the heating element is activated, the UPS (Universal Power Supply) emits a tone that will last until the heating element is
deactivated. The amount of heat delivered to the device heater may be adjusted by varying the knob setting on the UPS (Universal Power
Supply). Increasing the knob’s numerical value setting increases the amount of heat delivered to the device when using a single-range
device or the variable range when using the optional PowerPack Footswitch accessory or multi-range device. Generally, lower heat
ranges increase the sealing capabilities and increase the time required to divide tissue. Higher heat ranges decrease the time to divide
and may decrease seal integrity.
Do not use in the presence of flammable materials (e.g. alcohol, flammable anesthetics).
8. At the end of the surgical procedure, turn the UPS (Universal Power Supply) off and disconnect the Starion Cautery Instrument and if
applicable, the PowerPack Footswitch.
Always disconnect the instrument before discarding; the UPS (Universal Power Supply) is reusable.
