  • Reason
    The iguide key allows you to treat patients without using the hexapod evo rt system. when you turn the iguide key to the off position:, · the external inhibit signal is overridden., · the iguide software closes any open fractions and logs off (login appears)., in some circumstances, a bug in the iguide software prevents the iguide software from logging off. the iguide software looks like it can be used for positioning, but it is no longer running correctly. even when you turn the iguide key back to the on position, it will not set the external inhibit signal or alert you if the position has changed (position guard is inactive).
