IMPORTANT! . . . X-RAY PROTECTION


X-ray equipment if not properly used may cause injury. Accordingly, the instructions herein contained
should be thoroughly read and understood by everyone who will use the equipment before you attempt to
place this equipment in operation. The General Electric Company, Medical Systems Group, will be glad to
assist and cooperate in placing this equipment in use.
Although this apparatus incorporates a high degree of protection against x-radiation other than the useful beam, no
practical design of equipment can provide complete protection. Nor can any practical design compel the operator to
take adequate precautions to prevent the possibility of any persons carelessly exposing themselves or others to
radiation.
It is important that everyone having anything to do with x-radiation be properly trained and fully acquainted with the
recommendations of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements as published in NCRP Reports
available from NCRP Publications, 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Room 1016, Bethesda, Maryland 20814, and of the
International Commission on Radiation Protection, and take adequate steps to protect against injury.
The equipment is sold with the understanding that the General Electric Company, Medical Systems Group, its agents,
and representatives have no responsibility for injury or damage which may result from improper use of the equipment.
Various protective material and devices are available. It is urged that such materials or devices be used.

    



 
All electrical installations that are preliminary to positioning of the equipment at the site prepared for the equipment shall be
performed by licensed electrical contractors. In addition, electrical feeds into the Power Distribution Unit shall be performed
by licensed electrical contractors. Other connections between pieces of electrical equipment, calibrations, and testing shall
be performed by qualified GE Medical personnel. The products involved (and the accompanying electrical installations) are
highly sophisticated, and special engineering competence is required.

In performing all electrical work on these products, GE will use its own specially trained field engineers. All of GE’s electrical
work on these products will comply with the requirements of the applicable electrical codes.

The purchaser of GE equipment shall only utilize qualified personnel (i.e., GE’s field engineers, personnel of third-party
service companies with equivalent training, or licensed electricians) to perform electrical servicing on the equipment.

Gravity SAG Amplitude


For this procedure, the gravity pin is attached to the X–ray tube collimator during axial scans. This program measures
fluctuations of the projection of the pin onto the Detector to check for abnormalities of the rotating mechanism (bend,
vibrations, etc.).
Perform two off–line scans (see Section 2-2,Off–Line Scan), following the instructions described below:

1. Air File:
Remove the Bow–tie filter from the collimator, and scan air. Record the series No.

SECTION 1 – POWER UP SEQUENCE

1-1 OVERVIEW . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (INCLUDE: READING HEXA–DECIMAL LED STATUS)


The Power–ON test program is used for OC self–diagnostics during the Power up sequence, and is resident in the
ROM on the CPW assy.

This test program has two categories: Power On Test 1 (P–ON1) and Power On Test 2 (P–ON2).
The P–ON Test 2 includes more detailed tests than P–ON Test 1, and takes longer to run.
P–ON Test 1 is normally selected during routine customer operation. P–ON Test 2 can be used by the field engineer
to perform a more detailed analysis in the event of an error occurring on the system.

During test execution, the test currently running, along with the description/name and status (pass/fail), are identified
in 2 or 3 ways depending on the test concerned as follows:

1. CPW LEDs (all tests)

2. CRT display monitor (all tests, except CPW Phase 1, and DISP Phase 1 tests)

3. Terminal connected to CPW RS232C output (all tests)

See Section 1-2 for more details.

If at any point during the P–ON Tests an error is encountered, the testing is halted and the failed test number/code
remains on the CPW LEDs. With the exception of CPW Phase 1 and DISP Phase 1 tests, the test name/description
will also be displayed on the CRT monitor along with a brief error description.

Note
There normally no need to connect a CPW RS232C terminal, since no additional information other
than that on the LEDs and monitor can be obtained during P–ON Tests. Connecting a terminal is only
necessary for the execution of the off line tests.

The total processing time is as follows:

Table 1–1 Test Processing Time

Test Processing Time Time from Test Start, to System


Ready
P–ON 1 Test 4:00 minutes. 4:16 minutes.
P–ON 2 Test 13:05 minutes. 13:21 minutes.

1-1 OVERVIEW (continued)

Reading Hexa–decimal Numbers from LEDs


The hexa–decimal number in each rectangle herein represents the LED status displayed on the CPW board. Read
the LEDs from top to bottom (MSB to LSB). Decode the top four LEDs to create the most significant hex digit (the
leftmost digit) and the bottom four to create the least significant hex digit (the rightmost digit). All hexa–decimal codes
are displayed with the letter ‘H’.

More detailed status and information is displayed on the CRT from CPW Phase 2 test, so it is normally not necessary
to decode the LEDs status.

Example:

8
7
6
5 bit 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 (LSB)
4 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 (90H)
3
2
1

‘F’ means ‘Illuminated’ and equals ‘1’: ‘f’ equals ‘0’. LEDs are set at the start of each routine. If any error occurs during
self–testing, the LEDs display the corresponding error code.

1-5 CRASH SAVE AREA


When abnormal termination is caused by any failure (Bus Error, Address Error, or OS task crash), error information
is stored into an area of Memory called the ‘Crash Save Area’. Each processor has a Crash Save Area.

The Crash Save Area contains the following information:

Program Counter 
Status Register  at crash
Other registers 
LED status 

For details, see illustration 1–3.

The Crash Save Area on each processor is saved onto the hard disk at power–on. You can also save this information
onto floppy diskette as shown in illustration 1–4. Use the following procedure to transfer Crash Save Area information
to floppy diskette.

Under crash condition:

1. Label a crash save floppy diskette and insert it into the floppy disk drive.

Note
The first time you use this diskette, initialize it for a crash save according to Appendix A, How to Make
Crash Save disk.

2. Pull the system reset switch with the diskette in place to automatically transfer a copy of the crash save area
of each processor onto the diskette. The system rest switch is located beneath OC keyboard console extension.

3. Use the following procedure to read the contents of the diskette.

a. Insert the BOOT diskette into the floppy disk drive.

b. Set the BOOT select switch on the CPW board to the following positions:

ON
1 2 3 4

c. Pull the system reset switch.

d. Make sure the ‘>’ prompt appears on the CRT monitor, and then remove the BOOT diskette and inset the
crash cave diskette.

2-1 ETC POWER–ON TEST

2-1-1 General
The ETC (DC–X Ethernet Controller Interface) Power–ON Test program is used for ETC self–diagnostics during the
Power up sequence, and is resident in the ROM on the ETC assy.

During test execution, the test currently running, along with the description/name and status (pass/fail), are identified
in ETC LEDs.

If at any point during the Power–ON Tests an error is encountered, the testing is halted and the error code displays
on the ETC LEDs.

2-1-2 Reading ETC Board LEDs


The lower byte (8 bits) indicates the ETC process, the ETC Power–ON Test and current status in start–up sequence,
and the upper byte (8 bits) indicates the ETC status.

2-2 ETHERNET ADDRESS VERIFICATION


This test is performed to check if the Ethernet address data back–uped by the internal battery to the ETC board is
stored without error. If data is destroyed, first check if the internal battery has been consumed. Weak battery can not
back up the Ethernet data into the RAM. (Normally for 5 to 10 years, the internal battery can be used without replace-
ment.)

1. Connect the external terminal display to the CN4 of the ETC board.

2. Set the Dip switch (location:S6A) to the $4 position.

ON ‘1’

SECTION 3 – TGP OFF–LINE TEST

3-1 TABLE PROCESSOR OFF–LINE TEST


The TGP Assembly contains two micro processor system. (i.e., Gantry Processor and Table Processor)

Theses Processor systems can execute the OFF–LINE programs used for subsystem Adjustment, Functional Check
and Diagnostics.

Each Processor holds test programs in its own PROM. Execute each Processor’s OFF–LINE TEST program inde-
pendently with the DIAG switches and test switches.

The Micro Processor displays the test results and/or error on the Gantry Display Panel, so it requires a normally oper-
ating TABLE Processor display function. Execute the OFF–LINE TEST program after successful completion of the
TABLE PROCESSOR DISPLAY TEST.

The OFF–LINE TEST program performs three operations:

D Real Time Monitor Mode (I/O Status Check)


Use this mode to monitor Table /Gantry subsystem position information.
[Cradle Position, Table height, Tilt Angle (Table Processor) and Azimuth Position (Gantry Processor)] and
Status of Micro Processor’s I/O ports.

D Response Test Mode (Sequential function Test)


Micro Processor performs I/O port response check, internal timer function check, internal pulse generator
function check, cradle drive operation check (Table Processor) and Collimator drive operation check
(Gantry Processor).

D Simulate Test Mode (I/O Port Bit Check Tool)


Use this test mode to manipulate output port bits selected by test switches.
Use the Gantry Panel Switches to set bit data for the Table Processor test. Use the TGP manual switches
to set bit data for Gantry Processor Test.

1-1 DETECTOR CHANNEL ARRAY


The active and reference channels are connected the DAS. The ground channels are both ground and connected
to the DAS. The 32 reference channels are divided into two groups of 6 channels each. The channels of each group
are connected in parallel, so they produce 2 reference signals, one from each group of 16 reference channels. The
reference signals are used to apply corrections to the acquired x–ray view data.

SECTION 2 – IMAGE PROBLEMS (DETECTOR RELATED)

2-1 ARTIFACT PROBLEM


The following illustrations are examples which may be caused by DAS component failure.

Single Channel Ring

The failure of one input capacitor or one Detector channel causes a single
Phantom failure . Illustration shows an example of single channel ring. To identify a
DAS channel, measure the ring diameter and use the ring diameter chart
(Section 1-2).

Single Channel Streak

If a single channel failure occurs during one view period, it appears as


Phantom single line on image (streak). To identify the DAS channel which caused this
streak, use the circle cursor to measure the distance from image center to
the streak, then use the ring diameter chart (Section 1-2) to determine the
DAS channel. This failure can also be caused by a single channel signal
view data drop during data conversion or data transfer.

22 Channel Wide Band

A unit conditioning circuit failure causes 22 channels to fail. Illustration


Phantom shows an example of a 22 Channel Wide Band Ring.

1-1 LED INDICATORS

1-1-1 Power Cont Board


The Power Cont board contains 42 LEDs that provide XG system status and information. During XG system trouble-
shooting, some LEDs provide valuable information that speeds up the troubleshooting process.

The LEDs D1 ∼ D5 illuminates only during OFF–LINE exposure mode, that is, when the cable is connected between
CN15 and CN1. These LEDs display the XG system status during OFF–LINE exposure.

CLASS 1 EQUIPMENT
Any permanently installed equipment containing operator or patient accessible surfaces must provide backup protec-
tion against electric shock,in case the BASIC INSULATION fails. In addition to BASIC INSULATION,Class1 equip-
ment contains a direct connection to a PROTECTIVE(EARTH) CONDUCTOR which prevents shocks when a person
touches a broken piece of equipment or touches two different equipment surfaces simultaneously.

TYPE B EQUIPMENT
CLASS I, II, or III EQUIPMENT or EQUIPMENT with INTERNAL ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCES provide an ade-
quate degree of protection against electric shock arising from (allowable) LEAKAGE CURRENTS or a breakdown
in the reliability of the protective earth connection.

ORDINARY EQUIPMENT
Enclosed EQUIPMENT without protection against the ingress of water.

OPERATION 0f EQUIPMENT
CONTINUOUS OPERATION WITH INTERMITTENT LOADING.

Operation in which EQUIPMENT is connected continuously to the SUPPLY MAINS.The stated permissible loading
time is so short that the long term on–load operating temperature is not attained.The ensuing interval in loading is,
however, not sufficiently long for cooling down to the long term no–load operating temperature.

EQUIPMENT not suitable for use in the presence of a FLAMMABLE ANESTHETIC MIXTURE WITH AIR or WITH
OXYGEN or NITROUS OXIDE

CLEANING
The ProSpeed S series system is NOT WATERPROOF. It is NOT designed to protect internal components against
the ingress of liquids.Clean external system surfaces(Gantry,table,consoles and accessories)with a soft cloth dipped
in hot water and wrung DAMP/DRY. (NOT dripping!) IF NECESSARY, use only mild (dish washing liquid) soap to re-
move dirt.

NOTICE

Avoid damage to equipment! Some ”spray and wipe”cleaners etch and permanently cloud
clear plastic surfaces!! Use only warm water and mild liquid soap to clean surfaces.
