Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Philips has identified that the Protecting Earth (PE) cable between a motion controller and the PE star point was not installed on the affected product.
The lack of this aforementioned protective earth cable makes the system not compliant with the IEC60601-1 standard for protective earthing, however there is no risk for patients / operators / users since the frame is connected to protective earth (PE) and the unit involved is shielded with a cover.
The relevant parts are in the technical (equipment) room and therefore not accessible for patients. To date, Philips is not aware of any injuries that may have occurred as result of this situation.
