  • The ESG-150 produces a variety of waveforms to accommodate monopolar and bipolar devices.
  • The large, easy-to-read graphical interface provides increased setting visibility.
  • An intuitive touch screen allows for easy set up of physician-specific custom settings, as well as the ability to make adjustments for a more effective procedure.
  • Precise and easy-to-read error messages simplify error handling, complementing proven safety features: Fast Spark Monitor, High Power Cut Support, and Contact Quality Monitor.
  • The ESG-150 foot switch offers automatic foot switch assignment to the generator.
  • Olympus offers a variety of neutral electrodes including a variety of sizes and designs, a skin-friendly surface, and split-design with hydrogel, which minimize the risk of pad site burns.
