ARC 400 GUI
HF generators are used in laparoscopic and open surgery for cutting and coagulating with electricity. Various innovations have been integrated: the simultaneous use of three instruments, automatic settings through RFID, touchscreen behind glass, animated settings, backlit and inclined sockets, inclined front - no cables in front of the display, mono-bipolar separated on the left and right side, easy to clean – no screws, joints and much more. ARC+ (Argon) can be connected to the ARC 400 for special applications. Development started in 2004 when capacitive touchscreens were very rare in the OR. The main goal was a menu with only one level and a graphical appearance that was as simple as possible. The result of this effort has since been highly praised by users.
The design is based on the corporate design defined by Held+Team.
