• Impact-resistant thermoplastic housing, ideal for integration of steute Wireless
  • Developed especially for surgical or cosmetic laser devices to IEC 60601-2-22 standards
  • Latchable protective guard prevents unintended actuation of the control unit
  • Wireless signal transmission per steute wireless low energy
  • Power supply via 3 commercially available batteries (AA)
  • Battery compartment can be opened by hand
  • LED indication for status
  • Different RAL colours
  • Photo shows optional accessories

steute Meditec has developed a wireless foot control with a folding protective cover especially for laser technology. This user interface also works with the latest SW2.4LE-MED low-energy wireless technology and can thus be powered via commercially available instead of rechargeable batteries. The protective cover prevents unintended actuation of the pedal, as required by the standards for user interfaces controlling surgical and cosmetic laser devices. Of course, these foot controls can also be used in other applications where unintended actuation must be avoided.

Since this is a class-2 equipment, the receiver can only be validated together with the complete system of the customer. Thus the assessment of conformity takes place at the customer. At the request of the customer steute can provide a CE mark with the 4-digit number of the customer's notified body.

Application of a CE certified switch conforming to the Medical Device Directive still requires proof of the conformity of the complete system according to the Medical Device Directive (Directive 93/42/EEC) by the person responsible for launching it on the market!
