The functions of the KaVo K-K5plus can be controlled either directly on the central tabletop unit or via a connected knee or foot control unit. The automatic handpiece recognition allows handpieces to be exchanged flexibly.

For specific presetting of the torque and speed values for each user, four programmes are available, in which performance profiles can be saved and recalled by pushing a button. The maximum values for speed (up to 50,000 rpm) and torque can be set separately and independently of these programmes.

4 storable programmes:

  • Saves within 4 seconds and thus a 4-second speed control function.
  • 4-colour display for easy distinction of the programmes.
  • Quick access to the preset speeds and torque for repetitive work by simply pressing the speed control.
