ACTEON PSPIX²

Intra-oral dental radiography is an everyday procedure in a dental practice. The emergence of minimally invasive dentistry and the increasing demands of patients related to the boom in new technologies implies that the practitioner must make a choice between several systems.

With its compactness and speed, the PSPIX2 device will find a prominent place in the dental surgery.

  • PSPIX2 provides accurate images and striking contrast to ensure a reliable diagnosis thanks to the exclusive Fiber2Pixel technology
  • The extremely fast and automated image acquisition allows to streamline the dentist’s workflow
  • 5 imaging plates sizes are available depending on patient morphology and clinical applications

"Patients who visit the practice have differing tolerances to films or imaging plates being placed in their mouth. Challenges such as a strong tongue, gag reflexes, arch shape in both adult and child, will all mean that one film size will not be adequate to take the different types of intra-oral x-rays required. We have different PSPIX2 imaging plate sizes available in all our surgeries, and this is essential.”
Dr Dawett, UK, Dental Surgeon

“The PSPIX2 has been a welcome addition to my dental practice. It has been an investment that has paid for itself over and over again by increasing workflow and patient education.”
Dr Snyder, USA, Dental Surgeon

Dimensions: H 205 mm x D 194 mm x W 154 mm (Height x Depth x Width)

Weight: 2.6 kg

Operating voltage: 12 V

Operating current: less than 2.5 A

Bit depth: 14 gray scale bits

Theoretical resolution: greater than or equal to 20 lp/mm in high resolution.

Actual resolution: greater than or equal to 20 lp/mm in high resolution.

Ambient operating temperature: +10 °C to +40 °C, 30 to 85 % relative humidity, 700 to 1060 hPa.

Ambient conditions for storage/transport: -10 °C to +45 °C, 20 to 85 % relative humidity, 700 to1060 hPa.

Interface cable: for Ethernet port connections, use a CAT5 LAN cable. The Computer/Ethernet switch that the PSPIX system is connected to must be appropriately approved (e.g. per EN 60950, IEC60950, UL 60950).

Continuous operation

Not protected against running water (IPXO)

Class 1 Equipment

External power supply: 100 – 240 V ~ 50/60 Hz 700 mA FRIWO FW7362M/12

Class 1 laser product according to EN 60825-1:2007

Complies with the essential requirements of European Directive 93/42/EEC concerning medical devices.

Compliant with IEC 60601-1.

Not suitable for use in the presence of fl ammables such as anesthetic, oxygen or nitrous oxide.

Imaging Plate (IP)

The normal lifespan of an IP is several hundred, or even thousands of cycles, that the IP is handled with care and the manufacturer instructions are observed.

Size 0 Dimensions: 22 x 35 mm
Size 1 Dimensions: 24 x 40 mm
Size 2 Dimensions: 31 x 41 mm
Size 3 Dimensions: 27 x 54 mm
Size 4 Dimensions: 52 x 54 mm

This consists of two size-3 IPs placed side-by-side in a appropriate plastic support. The size 4 image is
subsequently reconstructed by the computer.

USE

From +18 °C to +45 °C, at least 80 % relative humidity (without condensation).

STORAGE

Unwrapped, unexposed to ambient (not direct) light in the storage box supplied. The box must be kept closed to avoid dust and/ or liquid splashing on the IPs.

Less than +33 °C / 80 % relative humidity (without condensation), protected against X-rays and UV light.

MATERIAL

photo-stimulable phosphorus applied uniformly on a plastic medium. Protected by an upper layer on the active surface and sealed around the edges.

DISPOSAL

IPs are industrial waste that must be disposed of in compliance with current national and local laws concerning the disposal of said material.
