Reason/Issue Elekta has identified that if the microswitch in the PCB assembly, solenoid limit switch of the middle arm is not set up correctly, it is possible to get an uncontrolled extension of MV or kV detector arms. It is possible that a collision with the extended arm can cause serious injury. When the detector arm is fully extended there is no risk.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions Recommended User Action:
Elekta recommends that the user does not open or close the detector arm when it is positioned above the patient, as specified in the Instructions for use (IFU).

Elekta recommends that the detector panel is not opened or closed when the gantry is at 180° (±45°), especially when a patient is on the treatment table.
