RF Puncture System – Endovascular

Baylis Medical Radiofrequency (RF) Puncture Generator

The RFP-100A Radiofrequency (RF) Puncture Generator is designed to deliver RF energy to compatible devices.

The RFP-100A RF Puncture Generator is designed specifically to make a controlled puncture in tissue while causing little to no damage to surrounding tissue. RF energy is applied in a cutting mode to only the very tip of the guidewire, creating a puncture that is similar in size to a regular guidewire. The difference is that mechanical force is not required to push across the tissue.


Rx only. Before use, consult product labels and inserts for any indications, contraindications, hazards, warnings, cautions and instructions for use..

Connector Cable

A specifically designed push-lock system allows for a quick and secure connection between the PowerWire guidewire and the new RF Puncture Generator RFP-100A.


BMC Footswitch Pedal

The optional footswitch pedal allows the physician to directly control the application of RF energy from the RFP-100A RF Puncture Generator.


Grounding Pad

A disposable grounding pad acts a return for the RF energy.


Test Box (RFP-100A-TB)

The test box allows the user to test the RFP-100A RF Generator. This pre-emptive maintenance tool functions as a complete circuit to allow for troubleshooting.


The RFP-100A generator is extremely straightforward. It features a user interface on a large LCD screen along with membrane push-buttons to control Time and Power settings. Intelligent messages via the LCD screen inform the user of any required actions. The recommended parameters are to be set at 2 Seconds and 10 Watts. The RFP-100A has two front connections; one for the connector cable and one for the grounding pad.

The RFP-100A generator can be utilized in a pulsed or continuous mode of RF energy delivery, depending on the user requirements.
