Intended use Drive unit for surgical transmission instruments with coupling system according to DIN 13.940 / ISO 3964 and the correct functions according to regulations: - mechanical drive and - supply with coolant
It is essential that you comply with the instructions of the manufacturers of surgical transmission instruments and all rotating instruments, burs, milling cutters, saw blades etc. used in surgery with regard to maximum speed, maximum torque, clockwise and anti-clockwise running. Use only suitable and serviceable tools. In order to prevent the danger of over-heating an area of treatment, the coolant flow must be adjusted as appropriate to requirements. Whether and how much coolant flow is to be used is determined by treatment requirements and the experience of the surgeon.
Qualifications of the user The elcomed surgical units may only be used by medically, technically and practically trained and educated personnel who have been trained in the functions of the W&H elcomed unit. We have focused on "physicians" as the target group in the development and design of the elcomed unit. In particular, we regard dental surgeons involved in implantology as well as physicians specializing in oral and facial surgery as our target group.
Production according to EC Directive The EC Directive 93/42/EEC was applied in the design and manufacture of this medical product and applies to the elcomed 100 surgical unit (Type 9925) and to the elcomed 200 surgical unit (Type 9926), in the condition as supplied by us. This declaration does not apply to attachments, extensions etc. for which there is no provision.
Important notes Due to possible interference with cardiac pacemaker function by magnetic fields from the elcomed motor, we give below the appraisal by the Austrian Testing and Research Institute for Biomedical Technology, Graz: "The use of elcomed dental drilling unit is associated with the generation of magnetic fields, which even in the most unfavourable conditions are below the interference immunity limit according to EN 50061 Ad1 by an approximate factor of 100. Under worst-case conditions, i.e. with the least favourable implantation and the most sensitive, i.e. atrium-controlled, cardiac pacemakers, the magnetic fields generated under normal operating conditions are just below the interference limit. When the switched-on handpiece is brought close to the site of implantation, reversible but definite influencing of the pacemaker function can be expected. However, this is of shorter duration than normal operation. As the unit is basically designed only for short periods of operation of not more than 45 s, no serious damage to the patient is to be expected, even under the most unfavourable conditions."
The surgical motors No. 02813500 and No. 02814000 along with foot-operated speed regulator No. 00990600 correspond to Class AP according to EN 60601-1 in danger zone M.
The foot-operated speed regulator is water-tight according to IP X8 (watertight according to IEC 529).
The control unit of the elcomed system is not intended for use in explosion hazarded danger areas M and G, i.e. the control unit must not be used in danger zones M and G according to DIN-EN 60601-1.
Stopping the motor
The motor stops when the foot-operated speed regulator pedal is no longer actuated.
Improper use or dismantling of the unit or otherwise non-compliance with our instructions relieves us of any claims under warranty or other claims! Dismantling must be undertaken only by authorized W&H service engineers! 6

It is recommended to change the speed only when the motor is not running. Pressing key or respectively increases or reduces the motor speed by one step. Continuosly pressing key or activates the repeat function and the speed is increased or reduced more quickly. The speed can thus be increased up to the specified speed limit of 40,000 rpm. In order to overcome the speed limit intentionally and to move into the speed range of 50,000 rpm, the active program key , or must be pressed once in addition. When the unit is switched off /on, or in the event of a power failure, the values which were set above the speed limit are not stored but are reset to the speed limit of 40,000 rpm. When a different transmission ratio than 1:1 is set, the change in bur speed is automatically converted and displayed according to the transmission ratio.
7.7 Torque limitation
The torque limitation can be switched on and off with key . When the torque limitation is switched off, the torque indication on the display is replaced with "MAX" and the LED above the key lights. The motor runs at 100 % of the available torque.
Caution! If the torque limitation is switched off by pressing the key , this applies to all three programming keys ( )! On pressing the key once more, the individual speeds are again assigned the set values of the torque limitation.
Fast deceleration of the bur can, at times cause the torque selected to be overloaded as a result of the rotational energy stored in the drive system. We therefore advise compliance with the individual manufacturer’s instructions for use, particularly when adjusting bridge screws. For safety reasons, these should be screwed in very carefully by hand, or by using a torque wrench. We would point out that adjusting these screws by an electric motor represents a potential risk as described above.
