Controllers, Air/Nitrogen Pressure
Definition : Controllers designed to regulate high-pressure (e.g., up to several hundred psi/several thousand kPa) output of air and/or nitrogen gas lines from a single point. These controllers typically include one or more pressure gauges, a pressure regulator, valves, and a diameter indexed safety system (DISS) outlet, all enclosed in a cabinet-like container. An external panel with control knobs for the valves and pressure is attached to the container. The whole controller is either recessed in or mounted on a wall. Air/nitrogen pressure controllers are used for remote control of turbine-driven surgical tools and/or ceiling-mounted equipment (e.g., gas tracks, columns) in surgical rooms. They permit the user to make and break equipment connections at zero level pressure.
