Dear All,
Has anyone got Birtcher medical (Beacon Laboratories) Beamer one (model) service manual. The issue we are facing is that once we press the foot switch both APC and Electrosurgical unit( Valley lab ) should work simultaneously, which is not happening . We have one adaptor interface(RJ11) with a new jack, the wire was connected to 3 and 4 before and after, but on tracing circuit the socket is connected only to 1,2,5,6.
Not able to find what we missed.
Regards

Manesh T M

Is there a foot-switch delay control on the back of these units? I remember dealing with a similar issue, and the delay on the valleylab unit had been set to high (about 5 seconds delay) so it appeared to the surgeon that the unit wasn't working when the foot switch was operated. Set the delay to zero and the surgeon was happy.
