Position Control Center for X-ray Systems

Development and production of the “Position Control Center”

Development and production of a control unit for mobile C-arms


For a series of newly developed mobile X-ray systems, a means was to be created for the operator to control the C-arm and its 4-motor axes easily and precisely within the sterile area. The so-called “Position Control Center” had to be integrated into the overall usability concept of the device while having the necessary functional safety.


As a specialist in the development and production of HMI systems, Sasse was able to offer a solution from a single source. Based on a jointly developed requirement specification, SASSE took over the mechanical and electronics development, while Ziehm implemented the firmware. A consistent “Design to Manufacture” resulted in a component with high ease of use.
