Schick Elite & XIOS Select Cable Replacement Step-by-Step
Schick Elite / XIOS Select Cable Replacement Guide
IMPORTANT! - Like other electronic devices, your digital x-ray sensor is susceptible to electrostatic discharge (ESD), particularly when the device is used in or around carpeted areas or low-humidity environments. During cable replacement, when Sensor contacts are exposed, it is especially important to protect the device from potential ESD damage. Touching a metal surface prior to replacing the Schick Elite/Schick33/ Fona Stellaris cable will reduce the risk of damaging Sensor components by accidental static discharge. The use of anti-static floor mats or floor treatments (for example Staticide 2005/2002) will also help eliminate static build-up in your office. Make sure the Sensor is placed securely on a clean, moisture-free surface.
Please clean and dry your hands before performing this procedure. Do not wear gloves since the powder inside them could be deposited on sensor contacts while replacing the cable.
IMPORTANT! The elastomeric must be seated properly in its slot for the Sensor to function.
- 1. Please clean and dry your hands before performing this procedure. Do not wear gloves since the powder inside them could be deposited on sensor contacts while replacing the cable.
- 2. Make sure the Sensor is placed securely on a clean, moisture-free surface.
- 3. Using a dental instrument, carefully lift and remove the tab cover from the back of the Sensor cable. Dispose of the tab cover as a new one will be used when the new cable is attached.
- 1. Using the screwdriver provided, loosen and remove the 2 screws that secure the cable to the Sensor. Dispose of the screws as new ones are supplied.
- 2. Remove the cable from the Sensor.
- 1. Remove the new cable from the replacement kit.
- 2. Verify that the small elastomeric strip (shown below) is in its slot in the cable. Ensure proper seating by applying a small amount of finger pressure across the strip. Skip ahead to step 4.
- 3. If the elastomeric is missing, take a spare elastomeric (supplied) and insert it into the cable slot. Apply a small amount of finger pressure across the strip and continue with the next step.
- 1. Align the new cable to Sensor as shown, making sure that the Sensor keying feature connects to the corresponding key in the cable assembly.
- 2. When properly aligned, the cable fits the back of the Sensor evenly and the metal area on the sensor is completely covered by the cable.
- 1. Holding the cable to the Sensor, insert one of the screws into its hole.
- 2. Using the screwdriver, tighten the first screw just until you feel some resistance. Repeat this action for the second screw.
- 3. Returning to the first screw, fully tighten it; then, fully tighten the second screw.
IMPORTANT! Make sure that both screws are securely tightened before continuing.
- 1. Place the new tab cover over the screw slot and press evenly with both thumbs. You should hear a soft click when the cover closes.
- 2. Verify that the tab cover fits evenly in its slot. Cable replacement is complete.
