For the application field X-ray/MRI/CT multi-function foot controls developed especially by steute are mainly applied. Most cases require complex positioning movements, meaning that »standard« foot controls are rarely suitable.
Observed standards are, for example, IEC 60601-1, referring to the general regulations for safety aspects, as well as the relevant product standards, e.g. IEC 60601-2-43, referring to the specifics of X-ray equipment.
The main features of foot controls for this application field: a defined minimum requirement for mechanical stability; defined requirements for the protection class; partly redundant design of switching elements; an integrated interface on request; use of multifunction elements.
View inside: besides X-ray equipment, MRI and CT devices are used that can be operated via steute foot controls.
