Title (EN) POWERED SURGICAL TOOL WITH CONTROL MODULE THAT CONTAINS A SENSOR FOR REMOTELY MONITORING THE TOOL POWER GENERATING UNIT
(FR) OUTIL CHIRURGICAL MOTORISE AVEC MODULE DE COMMANDE CONTENANT UN CAPTEUR DESTINE A COMMANDER A DISTANCE L'UNITE DE GENERATION DE PUISSANCE DE CET OUTIL
Abstract:
(EN) A powered surgical tool with a housing that contains a power generating unit such as a motor. A control module is disposed in a shell that is mounted in the housing. The control module contains a control circuit for regulating the actuation of the power generating unit. The power generating unit emits a signal representative of the operating state of the unit that is transmitted through the structural material forming the shell. Also internal to the control module shell is a sensor that monitors the signal emitted by the power generating unit. This signal output by the sensor is applied to the control circuit. The control circuit, based on the sensor signal regulates actuation of the power generating unit. Wherein the power generating unit is a motor, the signal emitted is the magnetic field that varies with rotor position. The sensor monitors the strength of this field.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un outil chirurgical électrique avec un boîtier contenant une unité de génération de puissance telle qu'un moteur. Un module de commande est placé dans une coque montée dans ce boîtier. Ce module de commande contient un circuit de commande permettant de réguler l'actionnement de l'unité de génération de puissance. Cette unité de génération de puissance émet un signal représentatif de l'état de fonctionnement de l'unité qui est émis à travers le matériau structurel formant la coque. A l'intérieur de cette coque de module de commande est également présent un capteur qui surveille le signal émis par l'unité de génération de puissance. Cette sortie de signal par le capteur est appliquée au circuit de commande. Ce circuit de commande, à partir de ce signal de capteur régule l'actionnement de l'unité de génération de puissance. Cette unité de génération de puissance est un moteur, le signal émis est une variation du champ magnétique fonction de la position du rotor. Le capteur surveille la force de ce champ.
