The functions and operation of BLF-2001 incubators meet the requirements of IEC-601-2-19 product standard and those of the 93/42/EEC Directive. The materials used comply with the hygienic and toxicological requirements and are monitored continuously. The development, production and quality assurance of the incubators are performed in accordance with the ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 standards.
The hood has six fully transparent windows (with iris opening upon request) and a large (upon request two) door(s). An X-ray cassette can be inserted under the cradle or on a cassette holder tray (optional). The cradle with the baby can be placed into an inclined position (even electrically upon request; optional), and the baby can be removed from the incubator safely and quickly together with the cradle.
ln the hood the air streams along the longitudinal axis of the baby's body. When the door is opened, an air curtain develops in the door. The hood of the unit may be single or double walled (optional).
The incubators are equipped with foil-covered keyboards and graphic LCD displays. Settings are easy to understand having the lowest possible number of controls. Set and real-time measured values are constantly shown on the LCD display.
The noise level in the hood is below 45 dBA (40 dBA as option). The opening and closing of windows is absolutely noiseless. The air flow rate is well below the value allowed by the relevant standards.
Oxygen supply in the hood is controlled by a rotameter between 21-40% (optional). An electronic oxygen servo unit provides higher oxygen concentration for more intensity between 21-75% (optional). The incubators may be ordered also with head hood and with warmed humidified oxygen servo control (21-95%) (optional).
ln the incubator, the baby's weight is measured with high accuracy by an electronic scale located under the cradle, the measured value is shown on the graphic display, while data are stored (optional). The height of the lying surface can be made electronically adjustable upon request (optional).
BLF-2001 incubators are micro-computer controlled. When switched on, a hardware and software self-test is launched. Possible errors are indicated on the graphic display. The trends and values measured every 3 or 24 or 170 hours can be retrieved from the memory of the incubator. The incubator may be connected to an external computer (by means of a software programme to be purchased separately), enabling monitoring and remote control, as well as the saving and printing of measured values and trends (optional).
The display of the BLF-2001 incubator is easy to read even from distance, indicating the following data, depending on the configuration:
- temperature of air in the hood
- humidity of air in the hood
- baby's skin temperature (optional)
- oxygen concentration (optional)
- weight (optional)
- second body temperature (optional)
The temperature control ranges of the incubator are as follows:
- in normal mode of operation in the case of 'air control' 27-37°C in the case of skin control 34-36°C.
- ln 'override' operation in the case of 'air control' 37-39°C, in the case of 'skin control' 36-38°C.
