EXPERTsurg Small Devices

Install the free software update easily and conveniently on your EXPERTsurg and benefit from the following changes:

New rinsing function

The "rinsing function" is a new activity you can use on your EXPERTsurg. The rinsing function serves to feed coolant and to start-up the illumination on the handpiece. The motor is not activated during this process in order to protect the patient. The illumination is switched on along with this function. The supplied quantity can be controlled in stepless manner using the speed button on the foot control. To optimise the workflow of treatment, the rinsing function can be programmes as a separate work step just like any other activity. However, the function can also be activated manually by pressing the pump button on the foot control for a longer period of time.


Change of transmission ratios that can be set

The transmission ratio of 1:5 for high-speed handpieces has been replaced by a reduction ratio of 16:1. This setting is designed mainly for the common combination of the following KaVo products: INTRA surgery shank 3624 N (0.534.5660) and INTRA reducing head 67 RIC (0.540.8340). Since this contra-angle handpiece is well-suited for inserting transplants as well, it can be used in one-touch calibration.


EXPERTsurg Small Devices

Change of the torque profile

The torque curve has been optimised to allow an even higher torque to be reached at high speeds. Accordingly, a torque of 2.5 Ncm at 40,000 rpm is now available to the user.

The present software update applies to devices up to production date 17 Nov. 2014, whereas devices manufactured after this date include this update already.

EXPERTsurg start up and Auto-Calibration


Who is able to carry out the repeated inspection (technical safety check / TSC) and when?
  • This check may only be carried out by an electrician who has received appropriate training for the medical product by KaVo.
  • This check is required by law and has to be conducted for the EXPERTsurg and MASTERsurg every two years.
  • The contents and given tests are based on the international standard IEC 62353. This standard applies worldwide for tests of medical electric devices or medical electric systems based on IEC 60601-1.
Who is able to conduct the KaVo service check and when?
  • The service check is conducted directly by the regional KaVo Service Organization. (Please contact the regional KaVo Service Center listed on the service Flyer shipped with the product)
  • The service check of the EXPERTsurg and MASTERsurg should be conducted every 2 years according to the technical instruction.  
  • Content of the KaVo service check:
    • Check of the functionality
    • Update of the software
    • Calibration and check of the performance
    • Repeated inspection (TSC)

    Thus the dentist is always on the safe side at a fair fixed price.

What does the Service Check Icon at the Display mean?

EXPERTsurg requires every 2 years a service check:

  Even if the last date (red wrench) is exceeded, the device works without limitations!

Are loaner units for bridging time of repairs or device checking available?
  • Yes. – If required KaVo is offering a loaner units to bridge time a device has been sent in for repair or service check.
  • Please contact the regional KaVo Service Organization listed on the Service Flyer shipped with the product.
Which warranty offers KaVo for the EXPERTsurg and MASTERsurg and the SURGmatic instruments?
  • KaVo offers a warranty of one year.
How to conduct a software update?
  • Download the software from KaVo Homepage.
  • Save the Software on a SD card (1-32 GB in FAT)
  • Turn off the device
  • Insert the SD card with the new firmware file into the unit. Make sure that only a single firmware file with the .bin file extension (the downloaded current file) is stor‐ ed on the SD card.
  • Turn on the device
    • Update will be started automatically.
  • After the update the device is ready with the new software
  • Info: After the update the filename of the software file is renamed from .bin to .old
Which instruments can be checked with the One Touch Calibration?
  • All instruments of the SURGmatic S201 line as well as INTRA LUX contra-angles with a reduction ratio of 27:1 (CL3-09; C9/C3) and 16:1 (3624 N und 67 RIC) can be checked.
One Touch Auto calibration


Can the SURGmatic instruments be reprocessed according to RKI requirements?
  • KaVo SURGmatic instruments fulfill the strict German RKI-requirements through a proven reprocessing.
  • The effectiveness of the procedure (see user manual) is approved by tests of an accredited hygiene institute.
  • The instruments should be reprocessed in assembled condition, as it corresponds to the validated reprocessing process (see user manual).
  • The instrument can be disassembled in head and shank for manual non-fixing* pre-cleaning . *non fixing: no alcohols, no aldehydes
Are the new SURGmatic instruments compatible with the INTRAsurg surgery devices or devices of other manufacturers?
  • Yes. But the function for the automatic detection of the instrument can not be used on the KaVo INTRASurg 300+.
Are the previous KaVo surgery instruments compatible with the new Surgery devices?
  • Yes. If the instruments have the following transmissions: 1:1 / 16:1 / 20:1 / 27:1
Are the heads of the INTRAsurg line (e.g. CL 3, C 3 and 67 RIC) compatible with the new SURGmatic S201 shanks?
  • No, see table with examples

Are the heads of the new SURGmatic S201 line compatible with the INTRAsurg shanks (CL 04, CL09, 3620N, etc.)?
  • No, see table with examples

Why are the heads not sold separately?
  • Offering complete instruments to the user facilitates choosing the right product. This prevents complex training in different, mostly special possible combinations.
  • The chirurgical contra angle S201 series covers all relevant speed and torque ranges. Changing heads is not necessary anymore.
  • Of course all heads are available as spare parts.

Are the heads with HEXAGON clamping system compatible to shanks S201 L or S201 C (contra-angles without HEXAGON)?

  • No, because for this combination no validation concerning function and reprocessing exists.
Are my previous drills and inserting tools without HEXAGON shanks compatible with the HEXAGON clamping system?
  • Yes. But the advantages of the optimized torque transmission and durability of instruments and tools cannot be used


Which maximum torque can be reached at the tool?
  • The devices including the motor INTRA LUX S600 LED generate a torque up to 80 Ncm at the instrument.
  • As the SURGmatic contra-angles are only approved to a maximum torque of 55 Ncm, torques over 55 Ncm should be avoided with these instruments.
  • Torques over 55 Ncm are clinically irrelevant and therefore rarely used.
What is the weight of instruments?
  • The weight of the S201 instrument is without bur or external spray clip only 81 g.
  • Therefore they are comparable with the proven KaVo instruments CL03-09 etc.
Is the motor tested and released for the prion program (sterilization with 18 minutes holding time)?
  • Number of reprocessing cycles far exceed the standard requirement - even when using the challenging prion program.
What happens if there‘s an error display during the motor calibration/checking of instruments?
  • If an error is displayed, the user should first do a calibration process without instrument. If there‘s no further error displayed the instrument is worn.
    • use another instrument.
  • If there is also without the instrument an error displayed, the motor is the reason. The case that a magnet got stronger and therefore produces a higher torque is physical not possible. If the magnet becomes weaker the torque goes down.
What has to be considered during the change of the Mini LED of the motor?
  • Proceed as follows:
    • Separate motor from cable
    • Remove ring by twisting
    • Push out the old LED with a tweezers
    • Insert the new LED in the slot, with the KaVo logo pointing outward
    • Attach the ring by twisting
    • Test the LED by starting the motor
  • There have to be no special measures concerning electrostatic discharge.
What can be adjusted at the foot control with the blue closure head?
  • EXPERTsurg: The slot under the lid has no function
  • MASTERsurg: The slot contains the batteries (Alkaline AA)
  • In general: The lid must be closed during the cleaning in order to prevent the penetration of water.
How long lasts the battery in the foot control of MASTERsurg?
  • It depends how often you use the device. But normally over 3 months.
  • After some minutes the foot control changes in a sleep mode to save energy. Activation by pressing of the foot pedal. 
  • Before battery is empty a warning message appears.
    • Once after turning on the device: You should prepare new batteries.
    • Repeated after 10 minutes: You have to change the battery now.
Saving / recording of data?
  • EXPERTsurg:

    • Saving / recording of data / parameters during a treatment is not provided. 
    • Exception: maximum reached torque is displayed until the motor starts again. This can be manually documented.
    • The SD-card slot is only used for software updates. 
  • MASTERsurg: 

    • Recording of the data while inserting the implant is possible as well as a continuous recording of all device data
    • A .bmp and .csv file is stored on the SD card
The torque graph at the display doesn’t appear. What is wrong?
  • Is the documentation mode turned on in the device settings? Implant must be activated.
  • The program step / activity “Inserting implant” must be activated.
  • The graph only appears if there is a torque at the instrument.  
What is documented within the .bmp file?


When is the .bmp and .csv file stored?
  • After 60 Seconds if there is no further activity
  • After changing the Program step
  • After changing the implant position
Which adjustments are possible?


  Values can ONLY be edited within the predefined range of the dedicated icons!

Which parts of the tubing can be sterilized and which cannot?
  • The complete tubing for the irrigation medium is just for single use and must be thrown away after every patient. This leads to higher patient safety, longer lifetime and better flexibility of the motor tube.
  • The motor tube as well as the motor can be thermally disinfected and sterilized.
Disinfection of housing surface
  • All device surfaces can be disinfected with wipe disinfection. Material test and approval was carried out with following medium:
    • FD 322 Dürr
    • Microcide AF Liquid (Schülke & Mayr)
Is it possible to use the device in potentially explosive atmospheres?
  • No, the device must not be used in potentially explosive atmospheres.
  • Furthermore the device must not be used in oxygen enriched areas (see instruction of use).
Will there be devices e.g. for workshops available?
  • As in the past, there will be demo units as exhibits for training courses available.
  • For reservations contact Mrs. Purtseladze: (link sends e-mail), Tel. +49 7351 – 56 1900
  • Except of demo units for exhibitions. These have to be ordered as usual.
