Safety systems:
  • Alert system
  • Beeps
  • Information on the display
  • Vibrations
  • Dual microprocessors
  • The insulin pump is controlled by two microprocessors. The safety concept is based on one processor (supervisor processor) supervising the other (main processor).
  • Whenever a defect or fault occurs in the main processor, it is identified by the supervising microprocessor. The motor is immediately switched off and an "Error E7: ELECTRONIC ERROR" occurs. Conversely, the main processor can also determine, at any time, whether the supervisor is working correctly
  • The motor constitutes another important safety component. In combination with the main and supervisor processors, the brushless motor provides the best possible reliability and accuracy in insulin delivery
