As you serve patients with your OEC C-arm day after day, the occasional breakdown is inevitable. In these situations, one of the best things you can do to minimize your downtime is have a reliable parts supplier that you can reach out to as your first call. Of course, the biggest thing a first-call parts supplier needs to earn your call is consistent stock of the parts you're likely to need for your C-arm.
Below you'll find a list of OEC C-arm parts that Block Imaging has in inventory regularly (some almost constantly). Each of these parts is a solution to a major problem that can put your C-arm down and halt your ability to perform scans. To make the list a little more convenient, we've included each part's number, current average list price, and a sign or two that you may need to replace the more common ones in the near future.
OEC 9600 SRAM Card: P/N 00-875631, List Price $1,300
If your 9600 is giving you a "Checksum" error, a failure in this part is probably the problem. We always have these cards in stock and, with an email confirming your system's serial number and software info, we can format one for you in short order and send it on its way to your site. You can also check out our how-to guide for troubleshooting your SRAM card.
OEC 9600/9800/9900 Batteries: P/N 00-900589-01/ 00-900589-02/ 5327368, List Price $1,200
These batteries are the big ones that live in the bottom of your C-arm and are another item we can practically guarantee availability for. If you see a "Charger Fail" error on your system, your batteries are a likely suspect. Once you order a set, you can refer to this video for information on how to install them.
OEC 9800 Monitors: P/N 00-901076-03 (right) -04 (left), List Price $3,000
When you order a CRT monitor for an OEC 9800 from Block Imaging, it has new glass, a repaired housing (as needed), and the cabling you need to make it basically plug-and-play. When you start to see images getting burnt into your CRT glass, or (gasp!) when your monitor goes dark altogether, you probably need a new monitor. You can watch here to see how to put your new monitor into your system.
In addition to these high-demand standbys, we also routinely carry the major boards for the OEC 9600 and the OEC 9800. Keep in mind that if you're using an OEC 9900, a significant portion of the boards in the 9800 will cross over to your system.
