LAMP
1 Press h.
• The processor’s main lamp and h LED illuminate green. When the main lamp illuminates, the distal end of the
scope connected to the processor emits light.
• If the lamp does not illuminate, the auxiliary lamp lights and the h LED illuminates green.

CAUTION
The auxiliary lamp in the EPK-i5010 incorporates a LED which is recognized as a class 2 laser product by IEC60825-1.
Emission from the endoscope distal tip into the human body is at a level lower than class 2 as long as the lamp and all
associated finished products are used properly according to provided instructions. To protect user's eyes, avoid looking
directly at the light exiting the endoscope and/or the processor.

20 Operating Procedure
NOTE
z The lamp life when used in this equipment is 500 hours. Prior to use, check the lamp life indicator on the front panel
to ensure just one of 3 indicators of the LEDs is illuminated green or yellow. After 500 hours of use, the indicator turns
red and the image quality will deteriorate. Try replacing the lamp at this point. Excessive use of the lamp beyond its
rated 500 hours (approaching a thousand hours of use or more) could cause the lamp to explode resulting in damage
to the video processor. The lamp life could be affected by frequency of use. In which case, the lamp life might become
shorter than 500 hours. I"Lamp Replacement" (p.40)
z If the main lamp does not illuminate even if you press h, check the LIFE indicator on the operation panel. If one
bar is illuminated red, perform the procedure in the "Lamp Replacement" section of this manual (p.40). If the bar
illuminates green or yellow, the lamp or lamp cartridge is broken. I"Troubleshooting" (p.44)
z Aside from the pre-use inspection of the equipment, the lamp in the video processor should be turned OFF when the
video system is not clinically used.
z When the auxiliary lamp is turned on, the image processing such as ”SE”, “CE”, “TE”, “i-scan1”, “i-scan2”, “i-scan3”,
are turned off. Please turn on the main lamp again by pressing h if you wish to activate the image processing.
z Auxiliary lamp is not designed to substitute the main lamp in case the main lamp goes out. The purpose of Auxiliary
lamp is to provide the minimum brightness necessary to safely release the angulation of the distal tip and remove the
endoscope from the patient’s body in case the main light goes out during the endoscopic examination. If for any
reasons, the main lamp goes out during the endoscopic examination, carefully remove the endoscope from the
patient’s body cavity and stop the examination.

Field strengths from fixed RF transmitters, as
IEC 61000-4-3 80 MHz to 2.5 GHz determined by an electromagnetic site survey,
should be less than the compliance level in each
frequency range.

Interference may occur in the vicinity of


equipment marked with the following symbol:

NOTE1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE2 These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and
reflection from structures, objects and people.
a
Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile
radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To
assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered.
If the measured field strength in the location in which the EPK-i5010 is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level
above, the EPK-i5010 should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional
measures may be necessary such as reorienting or relocating the EPK-i5010.

b
Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

Recommended separation distances between
portable and mobile RF communications equipment and the EPK-i5010
The EPK-i5010 is intended for use in the electromagnetic environment in which radiated RF disturbances are controlled. The
customer or the user of the EPK-i5010 can help prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance
between portable and mobile RF communications equipment (transmitters) and the EPK-i5010 as recommended below,
according to the maximum output power of the communications equipment.

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above, the recommended separation distance d in meters (m)
can be estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where P is the maximum output power
rating of the transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer.

NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the higher frequency range applies.
