Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Early life failure of the ADUs only occurs when the hospital mains provide 480V to the system. This current voltage may lead to saturation and overheating of the coils that protect the IGBTs (insulated-gate bipolar transistor) of the ADU. The overheating may generate a peculiar burning smell that may be noticed. In some instances, this burning smell may be noticed before the ADU fails. When the ADU fails the X-ray performance of the system is reduced to Emergency Fluoroscopy. Exposure will not be possible and image quality will be reduced.
