Chapter 2 Assembly & Installation

OVERVIEW
This chapter describes the steps required to assemble and install the Model QS-550
tubestand, including making all required electrical connections, and performing all
required alignments and calibrations.
ROOM CONSTRUCTION
A conventional radiographic room construction should be used in the area where
the tubestand is to be installed. Consult with your State Health Department or
local Building Codes for specific radiation shielding requirements.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
Install the tubestand before installing the radiographic table.
Check that the space location, conduit arrangements and junction boxes are pre-
pared for the permanent installation of the tubestand. Verify that the location
and space allowed is sufficient for the full range of tubestand/Transverse Arm
travel without hitting any walls or structures in the room (see Figure 5-1 for
equipment dimensions). Note that the Transverse Arm in/out adjustment and the
Vertical Column position relative to the rear wall are critical. Column rotation in
the counterclockwise (right-hand) direction could result in the Tube Housing strik-
ing the wall before the 90 degree index position is reached.
CDRH CERTIFICATION
The tubestand is not a CDRH certifiable product. However, it must be compatible
and operate in conjunction with other components in the x-ray system so that the
x-ray system performs in compliance with CDRH performance standards.
REQUIRED TOOLS AND MATERIALS
The following tools and materials are required to complete the assembly and
installation procedures:
• Double-bubble level - two feet minimum length
• Tape Measure - eight feet minimum length
• Standard hand tools
• Alcohol - to clean the high-tension cable ends, tubehead, and high- tension
transformer sockets
• Dow-Corning DC4 vapor-proofing compound, silicon insulating grease or
equivalent - for packing x-ray tubehead and high-tension cable terminals
• Special film cassette (11" x 14" cassette with scribed centerline)
• Electric drill and drill bits
• Lubricant - white lithium grease

THEORY
OF OPERATION

3-1
3-2
Chapter 3 Theory of Operation

OVERVIEW
The Model QS-550 tubestand is a free-standing x-ray tube support device (i.e., does
not require wall and/or ceiling mounting) that provides a wide range of tube positions
through longitudinal, vertical, rotational, and transverse tubestand motions. The
Handgrip Assembly is designed for operator convenience with ergonomically posi-
tioned push button switches that enable tubestand movement when pressed.
The following paragraphs provide detailed theory of operation of the various tube-
stand functions. See Figure 5-2, 5-3, 5-4 in Chapter 5, DIAGRAMS for system sche-
matics.

THEORY OF OPERATION
VERTICAL MOTION OPERATION
The vertical motion of the x-ray tube is controlled by a fail-safe type "vertical
brake"; when power is removed from the system, the brake remains mechanically
locked. A +24 VDC input, typically provided from the radiographic system’s x-ray
generator, is applied through connector TB1-1 and switch S1-2 to Vertical Lock
Switch S2-1. When S2 is pressed, the +24 VDC is applied to electromagnetic Ver-
tical Lock Coil L1, releasing the brake (i.e., magnetic lock) and enabling vertical
positioning of the x-ray tube. When Vertical Lock Switch S2 is released, +24 VDC
is immediately removed from L1 and the vertical brake (magnetic lock) is acti-
vated inhibiting x-ray tube vertical motion.
LONGITUDINAL MOTION OPERATION
The longitudinal motion of the x-ray tube (i.e., entire Vertical Column) is con-
trolled by a "longitudinal brake" located in the tubestand’s Base Assembly. The
+24 VDC input is applied through connector TB1-1 and switch S1 to Longitudinal
Lock Switch S3-1. When S3 is pressed, the +24 VDC is removed from electro-
magnetic Longitudinal Lock Coil L3, releasing the brake (i.e., magnetic lock) and
enabling longitudinal positioning of the x-ray tube. When push button S3 is
released, +24 VDC is immediately applied to L3 and the longitudinal brake (mag-
netic lock) is activated inhibiting x-ray tube longitudinal motion.
ANGULATION MOTION OPERATION
The angulation motion of the x-ray tube (i.e., clockwise and counter-clockwise
rotation of the x-ray tube) is controlled by an "angulation brake" located in the
tubestand’s Transverse Arm Assembly. The +24 VDC input is applied through
connector TB1-1 and switch S1 to Angulation Lock Switch S4-1. When S4 is
pressed, the +24 VDC is removed from electromagnetic Angulation Lock Coil L2,
releasing the brake (i.e., magnetic lock) and enabling rotation of the x-ray tube.
When push button S4 is released, +24 VDC is immediately applied to L2 and the
angulation brake (magnetic lock) is activated inhibiting x-ray tube angulation
motion.

X-ray Tube Stand - Service Manual Revision G


Quantum Medical Imaging, LLC 3-3
Chapter 3 Theory of Operation

TRANSVERSE MOTION TRAVEL


The transverse motion of the x-ray tube (i.e., cross-table movement of the x-ray
tube) is controlled by a "transverse brake" located in the tubestand’s Transverse
Arm Assembly. The +24 VDC input is applied through connector TB1-1 and
switch S1 to Transverse Lock Switch S5-1. When S5 is pressed, the +24 VDC is
removed from electromagnetic Transverse Lock Coil L4, releasing the brake (i.e.,
magnetic lock) and enabling transverse motion of the x-ray tube. When push
button S5 is released, +24 VDC is immediately applied to L4 and the transverse
brake (magnetic lock) is activated inhibiting x-ray tube transverse motion.
ALL LOCKS RELEASE OPERATION
The All Locks Release button provides the operator with a single button that,
when pressed, enables x-ray tube positioning in the vertical, longitudinal, rota-
tional, and transverse directions simultaneously. The +24 VDC input is applied
through connector TB1-1 to normally-closed switch S1-2 and S1-5. With the
switch closed, the +24 VDC power input is routed through contact S1-1 to the
Transverse Lock Switch S5-1, Longitudinal Lock Switch S3-1, and Angulation Lock
Switch S4-1 and to contact S1-4, which is not connected. The +24 VDC is then
routed through switches S5, S3 and S4 to the Transverse, Longitudinal, and
Angulation Lock Coils L4, L3, and L2, respectively, which activate the locks for
each of these motions. The fail-safe Vertical lock remains locked since the +24
VDC is not connected in this switch state.
When switch S1 is pressed, the +24 VDC power input is routed to switch contacts
S1-3 and S1-4. In this state, +24 VDC input power is removed from the Trans-
verse Lock Switch S5-1, Longitudinal Lock Switch S3-1, and Angulation Lock
Switch S4-1 disabling the locks (thus enabling transverse, longitudinal, and angu-
lation x-ray tube motions). The +24 VDC power input is routed through switch
contact S1-6 to the fail-safe Vertical Lock, releasing the brake, thereby enabling
vertical motion of the x-ray tube.
AUTO-STOP OPERATION
The Auto-Stop function is provided to enable quick longitudinal positioning of the
x-ray tube at the 40" (or 100 cm) and 72 "(or 180 cm) SID positions. This func-
tion requires that the operator simultaneously press the Longitudinal Lock
Release button (switch S3) and the Auto-Stop button (switch S6). The circuit
operation is as follows:
The +24 VDC input is applied through connector TB1-1 to 40" Table SID switch
S7, 40" Wall SID switch S8, and 72" Wall SID switch S9. If the tubestand’s Verti-
cal Column is moved over a 40" or 72" SID actuator on the floor track, it closes
the corresponding SID switch, which routes the +24 VDC to the Longitudinal Lock
Coil L3. The longitudinal brake (magnetic lock) is activated, locking the x-ray
tube in the current SID position. To re-activate the Auto-Stop function, both the
Longitudinal Lock Release and Auto-Stop buttons must be pressed.

HAND GRIP DISPLAYS


The analog-type Hand Grip display includes an analog angle indicator for display-
ing the rotation angle (i.e., "angulation") of the x-ray tube, and two SID light-
emitting diodes (LEDs). When the Vertical Column is positioned over the 72" SID
actuator, located on the floor track, +24 VDC is applied from connector TB1-1
through 72" Wall SID switch S9, to the 72 Inch LED, lighting the LED. Similarly,
when the Vertical Column or the Vertical Trolley is positioned over the 40" SID
actuator, +24 VDC is applied from connector TB1-1 through 40" Wall SID switch
S8 or 40" Table SID switch S7, respectively, to the 40 Inch LED, lighting the LED.
Optionally, TechVision Hand Grips replace the standard analog-type hand grips on
systems equipped with this feature. Refer to the TechVision Service Manual for
theory of operation.
