A locking mechanism under the slit lamp arm allows you to adjust its height with a single hand. It has a 12″ range of travel, and can be counterbalanced for instruments weighing between 12 and 60 lbs. A switch to raise and lower the chair is available on the slit lamp arm.
Upper (Refractor) Arm
The 5250 refractor arm is standard. A single lock phoropter arm is available as an option at no additional charge. Options include a third instrument arm with a 20 to 50 lb capacity, and a hanger for an indirect ophthalmoscope.
Console switches turn a chart projector on and off; raise and lower the Reliance examination chair; control the intensity of indirect gauges and automatically return the chair to the upright position.
Membrane Switches add Life
Backlit membrane switches located on the instrument console control a chart projector, and the raise, lower and auto down functions of a Reliance examination chair. Membrane switches last 10-times longer than their mechanical counterparts and increase safety by eliminating high voltages. They control intensity of the overhead lamp, and the binding posts typically used for the indirect opthalmoscope.
