FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Which power source is compatible with my HEINE OMEGA500?
The HEINE OMEGA 500 can be used with the belt-worn HEINE mPack (8.5 hours opeating time) or with the cable-free HEINE mPack UNPLUGGED (3.5 hours operating time).
Can I upgrade from an XHL to an LED version?
Yes, the OMEGA500 can be easily and quickly converted with the help of an upgrade kit. The upgrade kit includes the LED unit plus the HC50 L Rheostat.
How can I clean and disinfect the HEINE OMEGA500?
Before cleaning, disconnect from the power source. Use a suitable cloth only to wipe the surfaces of the instrument and the ophthalmoscopy lenses. The instrument and the loupe may be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Any cleaning agent used must be suitable for use on plastic surfaces. An alcohol-based surface disinfectant can be used to clean the instrument ophthalmoscopy lense. The use of a spray disinfectant and soaking or disinfection in a machine are not permitted. Please only use disinfectants based on alcohol. The lamp can be cleaned, with a dry cloth if necessary. If touched a patients eye with the loupe you can also disinfect the loupe by Incidin® Liquid and Bacillol® plus. We recommend to use Incidin® Liquid und Bacillol® plus to disinfect the device.
What does the HEINE HC50 L Headband Rheostat do?
The Rheostat can be conveniently mounted on the left- or right-hand side of the headband and controls LED or XHL illumination. Light-intensity can be precisely adjusted – especially in the low-light intensity range. It also operates as an on/off switch.
The HEINE OMEGA500 is marketed as dust proof. Why do I still see dust when looking through the front glass of the indirect ophthalmoscope?
The term dust proof means that the instrument is protected against the infiltration of dust. The instruments have no open and unprotected windows. Nevertheless, in the unlikely case that some dust particles get encased inside the instrument in a heavy use environment, the product can be serviced by HEINE. Microparticles that can be seen through the instrument are normal and don’ t obstruct examination.
