Valleylab FORCE FX generator with computer controlled instant response technology - the newest advance in electrosurgery designed to ensure a consistent clinical effect through all tissue types.

VALLEYLAB INSTANT RESPONSE SYSTEM utilizes tissue density feedback circuitry and computer controlled output for automatic response to changes in tissue density - reducing the need to adjust power settings for different types of tissue.

IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AT LOWER VOLTAGES reduces sparking, neuromuscular stimulation and RF interference.

CUTTING, COAGULATING AND BIPOLAR OUTPUTS are designed for laparoscopic surgery. Low cut and low coag outputs use lower voltages to reduce the risks of electrosurgery. Macrobipolar mode is designed specifically to today's new generation of macrobipolar cutting instruments.

VALLEYLAB REM SAFETY virtually eliminates the risk of patient burns at the return electrode site. The Valleylab Rem Contact Quality Monitoring System has been proven in over 85,000,000 procedures worldwide.

THREE CUT MODES offer a choice of LOW cut for delicate tissue or laparoscopic cases, PURE cut for clean, precise cut in any tissue, and BLEND for cutting with hemostasis. All cut modes are controlled by the Instant Response System.

THREE COAG MODES include LOW/DESICCATE for low voltage contact coagulation suitable in laparoscopic and delicate tissue work, MEDIUM/FULGURATE for efficient noncontact coagulation in most applications, and HIGH/SPRAY for coagulating large tissue areas with minimum depth of necrosis.

THREE BIPOLAR MODES - LOW/PRECISE, MEDIUM/STANDARD, and MACROBIPOLAR - are also controlled by the Instant Response System. LOW and MEDIUM settings utilize low voltage to prevent sparking.

CEM MODE allows the FORCE FX generator to be used with the CUSA CEM nosecone.

Force FX Electrosurgical Generator Technical Specifications (110-120V)

OUTPUT WAVEFORMS Bipolar Precise: 470 kHz sinusoid Standard: 470 kHz sinusoid Macro: 470 kHz sinusoid

Monopolar Cut Low: 390 kHz sinusoid, Similar to the Pure cut mode except the maximum voltage is limited to a lower value. Pure: 390 kHz sinusoid Blend: 390 kHz bursts of sinusoid, recurring at 27 kHz intervals. 50% duty cycle envelope.

Monopolar Coag Desiccate: 240 kHz sinusoid repeated at 39 kHz. 8% duty cycle. Fulgurate: 390 kHz damped sinusoidal bursts with a repetition frequency of 57 kHz into 300 ohms. Spray: 390 kHz damped sinusoidal bursts with a randomized repetition centered at 28 kHz. Frequencies include 21 kHz
Output power changes by less than 15% or 5 watts, whichever is greater.
