NOUVAG HighTorQ System
Sterilising battery-powered instruments is a heavy strain on the motor and all the electronic components. These components require rigorous protection from the impact of sterilisation. The Nouvag HighTorQ concept separates the drive unit with control electronics and motor from the rest of the instrument by means of a hermetically sealed compartment. This results in the complete elimination of the need to sterilise these key components. A ‘non-sterile’ person inserts the non-sterilised Power-Pack into the instrument using a sterile funnel and the ‘sterile’ person closes the cover. The intelligent Power-Pack contains the software for every controllable power tool. The Power-Pack recognises which HighTorQ power tool it is currently connected to and provides the relevant control parameters.
This new development drastically extends the sensitive components’ service life without significantly restricting the units in their use. The perceived high quality and the award-winning design of the whole power-battery system HighTorQ is an ideal match to the well-known NOUVAG philosophy of providing the medical sector with high-utility units, sophisticated technology and lengthy durability.
