BANTAM | PRO, A952
ELECTROSURGICAL GENERATOR

Description

The Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952 is a High Frequency Desiccator with cutting ability. You might call it a split personality. One half of the unit is a high frequency desiccator, an upgrade to our very popular Aaron® 940. The other half is a Bovie Generator, giving you 50 watts of cutting power and coag capabilities – plenty of power for most cutting procedure performed in the doctor’s office.

OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

DESIGNED FOR YEARS OF TROUBLE-FREE USE

The Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952 is designed and engineered to be the most reliable and durable generator available today. The unit’s life is prolonged by incorporating the latest in chip technology and reducing the number of internal parts, thereby generating less internal heat. Unit cleanup is simplified by its non-absorbing, non-staining, high-impact ABS enclosure.

COMPACT, MOBILE, ELECTROSURGICAL SYSTEM

Standard package includes the unit, power cord, reusable handpiece, non-sterile drapes, 2 sterile drapes, 5 sterile disposable electrodes, 6 disposable sterile dermal tips, 12 disposable non-sterile dermal tips, 2 reusable grounding cord, 5 disposable split grounding pad, wall mount kit and users guide.

THE GENERATOR

Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952 is a high frequency desiccator with cutting ability. You might call in a split personality. One half of the unit is a high frequency desiccator, an upgrade to our very popular Aaron® 940. The other half is a Bovie Generator, giving you 50 watts of cutting power and coag capabilities- plenty of power for most cutting procedure performed in the doctor’s office.

THREE MODES OF OPERATION

The Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952 Generator offers you up to 50 watts in Cut mode, Blended Cut mode, and Pinpoint Coagulation mode.

Simplicity is achieved using easy-touch, color-coded membrane pads, and by placing all user controls and outputs on the unit’s compact front panel.

The ergonomic arrangement of commonly used operating functions, plus a large, comfortable rotary dial, provide quick operating-mode selections and smooth power control with the option of adjusting the power from the handpiece.

PROCEDURAL CONFIDENCE

Use of the Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952 promotes procedural confidence. Our surgical handpiece fits comfortably in your hand and, when not in use, rests conveniently in a holder specifically designed to minimize contact with the unit. The handpiece holder safely isolates the instrument from the medical team, the patient, and the unit.

All industry-standard 3/32″ (0.24 cm) disposable and reusable electrodes fit the A902 handpiece. Handpieces may be autoclaved for greater operating efficiency and maximum cost control.

When in electrosurgical generator mode, the unit features Bovie NEM pad sensing technology which monitors the return electrode for optimum patient protection.

Bovie Bantam | PRO A952 post-procedure cleanup is simple (and fast) due to nonabsorbent ABS enclosures, and our use of liquid resistant membrane switches that can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

HIGH FREQUENCY DESICCATOR

  • 40 Watts – Fulguration
  • 40 Bipolar
  • 40 Micropolar
  • .1-10 Watts – Adjustable in 1/10 watt increments

THE DESICCATOR

The High Frequency Desiccator is a ground referenced machine that does not require the use of a return pad. It gives you precision Fulguration up to 40 watts and Bipolar power up to 40 watts. All power settings are adjustable in 1/10 watt settings from .1-10 watts.

CHANGE POWER IN ONE STEP, NOT FOUR

The Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952, allows the doctor to change the power setting with one action, using the up/down buttons on the autoclavable handpiece or the rotary power-control dial. This saves time and protects the sterile field during sensitive procedures.

FOOT CONTROL ADVANTAGE

To use the foot control feature one simply needs to plug in the optional footswitch. There is no expensive separate handpiece, and the handpiece retains the ability to adjust the power and activate the unit in this mode.

THE BOVIE 3-BUTTON HANDPIECE – BETTER BY DESIGN – INSIDE AND OUT

The A902 handpiece (Patent #8,998,899) allows you to adjust the power output up and down as well as to activate the unit, even when you are in foot control mode. Designed with a 2-pin plug design, no more flying lead.

DIGITAL ERROR DETECTION

Digital error detection means unsurpassed safety for you and your patient. The Bovie Bantam | PRO, A952, continuously monitors every aspect of the unit’s output. At the sign of any problem, the machine instantly disables the output and displays the appropriate error code on the display.

ENERGY SETTINGS

CUT MODE

The Cut mode gives a general cutting with a standard RF waveform to cut all types of tissue with minimal hemostasis.  It generates constant output power over a wide range of impedances.

Cut

BLEND MODE

The Blend Mode is a combination of Cutting and Hemostasis (55/45). The Blended Cutting offers increased control of bleeding at the surgical application site.

Blend

COAGULATION MODE

The Coagulation Mode provides precise control of bleeding in localized areas.

Coagulation

FULGURATION MODE

The Fulguration Mode produces a sparking at the skin surface for more shallow tissue destruction.  In the Fulguration Mode the patient return pad is not required.  If increased coagulation is required then a grounding pad will increase the hemostasis effect.

Fulguration

BIPOLAR MODE

The Bipolar Mode is more aggressive coagulation mode, with some arcing, and works with modulation and a crest factor of 4.8.

Bipolar

MICRO BIPOLAR MODE

The Micro Bipolar mode is a more gentle mode of coagulation,  has no arcing, and works with a continuous waveform and a crest factor of 2.6.

Micro Bipolar

RETURN ELECTRODE SENSING AND CONTACT QUALITY MONITORING

The Bantam Pro incorporates a return electrode contact quality monitoring system (Bovie NEM™).  When using a split pad (Highly Recommended) the system continually monitors the contact quality between the patient and the split return electrode.  This feature is designed to minimize patient burns at the return electrode site.
