Talking about the settings, you should also know the operating controls and indicators, which is the basic to operate the Conmed Hyfrecator 2000. As shown on the Operators’ Manual, here are the operating controls and indicators that you should know:

  • On/off switch: This one can be used to turn unit on or off.
  • Power activation button: This one can be pressed to emit high frequency from the electrode.
  • Power up/down switching handle and cord: This one can be used to remove or insert the power handle in the indicated direction.
  • Power output indicator: This one can be used to display the power setting for the mode presently chosen.
  • Active “on” indicator: When the power activation is pressed, this one illuminates.
  • Power knob: This one can be used to increase power by rotating clockwise and to decrease power by rotating counter clockwise.
  • High output terminal: This one can be used to insert the power up or down. It provides between 0 and 35 watts.
  • Low output terminal: This one can be used to insert the power up or down. It provides between 0 and 20 watts.
  • Bipolar output terminal: This one can be used for coagulation procedures using forceps.
  • Switching connector: This one can be used to power up or down switching handle and cord socket plugs into the connector.
  • Terminal selector switch: This one can be used to choose the desired output terminal and output mode.
  • Patient plate: This one can be used for high or low mode operation. Feel free to simply plug the dispersive plate into this connector.
  • RF plug (single pin accessory plug): This one can be used to connect the HI or LO output terminal to the handle. It is a must for this plug to be connected to an Output terminal for the pencil to deliver current. The same RF plug connection is used by both the Handswitching and Footswitching Pencils.
  • Power up button: This one can be pressed to increase the power setting for the chosen mode.
  • Power down button: This one can be pressed to decrease the power setting for the chosen mode.
  • Release button: This one can be sued to remove an accessory switching connector. If you want to release the accessory, please press this button and then pull the connector straight away from the unit.
  • Footswitch: This one is used to activate the unit when a Footswitched Pencil or Bipolar Forceps are used.
  • Bipolar forceps: This one must be used with a footswitch for activation.
  • Footswitched pencil: This one is used when footswitch activation is preferred.
  • Volume control: This one is used to adjust the volume of the audible tone generated when the power activation button is pressed. If you want to increase the volume, you will have to insert a screwdriver and rotate the clockwise until resistance is felt. Keep in mind to not force adjustment past the resistance point. There is no way for the tone to be completely turned for the safety reasons.
  • Wall mounting studs: This one is used with the standard wall mounting kit, Cat. No. 7-796-20. It is also possible for the instrument to be mounted on optional mobile pedestal stand (Cat. No. 7-796-1). Remember that it is a must for the 7-796-20 mounting kit to be used to mount the unit on the mobile pedestal stand.
