The SSCOR VX-2 is a lightweight, portable, powerful and "Firefighter" tough, battery powered suction unit. The VX-2 is powerful enough to meet state, national and international standards for portable suction equipment (>30 lpm clinical airflow and >525mmHg negative pressure), and versatile enough to provide essential medical suction inside and outside the vehicle.
The SSCOR VX-2 features an advanced battery maintenance system. The 3 LED, 5 position battery indicator alerts the user when the device is being charged as well as the condition of the internal sealed lead acid battery. Additional LED’s indicate when the VX2 is plugged in to a power source and when the pump is running. The battery maintenance system allows the device to be plugged in at all times without over charging the device. Additionally, the battery maintenance system monitors the battery voltage as the device is running and alerts the user when the voltage is getting low. When the battery voltage is depleted and the suction unit is no longer able to operate to specifications, the battery maintenance system disconnects the battery from the vacuum pump protecting the battery from a deep discharge condition which can lengthen the life of the battery. The battery maintenance system also features a low battery capacity alert system that lets you know when it is time to change your battery. The LEDs on the front panel will begin to blink when the device is operated with a low capacity battery.
The device also features outward facing controls that are easily accessible during operation and a variable regulator and gauge. The variable regulator allows the negative pressure to be adjusted quickly between < 50 to >525mmHg with a quarter turn of the knob to provide reduced vacuum for tracheal and pediatric procedures as well as vacuum less than 50mmHg for neonates.
The durable lightweight molded chassis allows the device to easily be carried to the patients’ side and withstand the rigors of field use. The device also features a tubing strap to ensure your supplies are always readily available when needed and a canister holder that protects the canister from abuse.
NOTE: The VX-2 is designed for battery operation or operation from vehicle power. The AC charger provided with the VX-2 is for charging purposes only and it will not power the VX-2.
