Surgical Generator The Megadyne Mega Power™ Electrosurgical Generator comes with large displays and requires only minimal adjustments by the clinical staff. In addition to its standard modes, the Mega Power generator has an advanced cutting effect (ACE) mode and Constant Control Technology™. The ACE mode delivers a scalpel-like cutting effect for minimal thermal necrosis and reduced scarring. Constant Control Technology automatically monitors tissue impedance and adjusts power output to reduce tissue drag for clean, accurate cutting at the lowest possible settings. The generator maximizes the performance of Constant Control Technology with a reserve power source that holds power levels constant in even the highest-impedance tissues.
