The Transceiver is a State of the Art Micro-electronic Device, designed to receive the Radio Signals transmitted by the Heidelberg pH Capsule. The Transceiver converts the Capsule’s Radio Signal to High Speed Digital Pulses, and sends the Digital Pulses to the Computer, where they are processed and displayed on the Monitor in Graph form. Each High Speed Digital Transmission from the Transceiver contains Information on pH levels in the Patient’s Stomach. The Digital Transmissions also include information on the pH Capsule’s Signal strength, this information is processed and Displayed on a Computer Indicator on each Graph. These High Speed Transmissions also include information on the amount of Power which is left in each Lithium-Ion Battery Pack, inside the Transceiver. If the Battery Power fall below a predetermined limit, the Computer will notify the Operator with a Prompt, which will be Displayed on the Computer Monitor.
Each Transceiver is assigned a Number, which corresponds to a Transmission Channel it, and only it, will operate on. If your pH Diagnostic System is set up for testing multiple Patients at one time. Each Transceiver will have it’s own Number Assigned and is shown on the front. Custom built Heidelberg pH Diagnostic Systems may have up to 16 Transceivers, for testing 16 Patients at one time without interference.
The Transceivers do not have to be in close proximity to the Dedicated Heidelberg Computer for pH Testing. The approximate Transmission Range is about 75 to 80 yards.
The Transceiver is self contained and wireless. The power source for the Medallion is a custom built Lithium-Ion Battery Pack that will Power the Medallion for 12 to 14 hours. A light on the front of the Medallion will also illuminate until the Battery Pack is fully charged.
Each New Heidelberg Medallion has a Data Port on the mid-left side of the enclosure, for connecting the recently developed pH Capsule Locator.
Care and Handling
The Transceiver is a highly sensitive Electronic Device, and should be handled with the utmost care. Dropping or impacting the Medallion could cause damage to the internal electronics. Do not use harsh detergents or strong chemical agents to clean the Medallions. We recommend a damp cloth with a mild soap solution, if cleaning is required.
