If you use an OEC C-arm or urology suite, the time may come when you need to know your system's software version for service purposes or, if you intend to sell your system, to tell a prospective buyer essential details about the equipment.
If you've never looked it up before, it's very easy to do. There are three simple steps below to find out which software version is installed on your 9800, 8800, 6800, or 2800 system. For brevity's sake, we'll refer to these systems collectively as, "X800".
How to find Your X800 Software Details
1. Boot up your X800 system
Just press your power button and wait a minute or two as you normally would.
2. Press "Help"
After bootup is complete, push the "Help" key on the workstation keyboard.
3. Note your software details
The next screen that comes up will be the software versions menu. Be sure to copy down all the numbers on the screen or, better yet, take a photo with your smartphone or camera to share with engineers or buyers. Each number gives a little more detail about the exact configuration of your machine.
