Delta Q Diagnostics





Delta Q Self-Diagnostic Check



Automatic Check


The Delta Q Autoclave automatically performs a diagnostic self-check on nine key components for operational continuity each time the main power switch (toggle switch located at rear of unit) is turned on.

An additional check may be made by the following procedure:
    Operational Check

    Depress “Power On” switch and “Clear/Start” switch at the same time. The autoclave beeps once, signaling the beginning of the self-diagnostic procedure.

    During the first four seconds, check that all display segments illuminate. If segments do not illuminate, contact us.

    This problem can give the operator incorrect information if not repaired

    After self-diagnostics, the unit returns to stand-by. The lower window displays any error found during the Operational or Automatic self-diagnostic check procedure.

    See table below for explanation of display.
