Clever mobility for specialised needs
With instrument delivery on a mobile instrument cart, Planmeca Compact c dental
unit offers a flexible and functional choice for specialised needs. Manoeuvring is easy,
as the extremely stable mobile cart rolls smoothly on different surfaces. The mobile cart
is also available independently without chair and cuspidor to fulfil the various needs
of specialised users, such as dental hospitals and implantologist clinics.
Throughout their 35-year history, Planmeca has worked in close cooperation
with the dental professionals in developing innovative products. As a proof
of the long design experience and close customer contacts, the Planmeca Compact
dental unit range provides practical and user-friendly solutions that support the entire
Planmeca Compact c dental unit delivers the instruments
on a mobile instrument cart, creating an optimal side
delivery concept for specialised environments such as
hospitals and oral surgery clinics. The design concept
with side lifting patient chair mechanism and thorough
hygiene controls efficiently promotes ergonomic and
safe working methods.
To maximise stability and movability, the instrument
cart has a low centre of gravity. The double wheel casters
roll smoothly on various surfaces, making manoeuvring
very easy. The telescopic column has a wide height
adjustment range that makes the unit adaptable for
different sized users. The user can freely adjust the angle
of each instrument holder, so that they always have
the best possible ergonomic access to each instrument.
The instrument cart can be equipped with up to six
instruments. The left-hand position is dedicated to
the syringe that can be operated simultaneously with
any other instrument. The four right-hand instrument
positions are universal and interchangeable, so that
they can adapt any instrument from Planmeca’s wide
instrument range. All instrument hoses are equipped
with intelligent Plug&Perform quick connectors.
• The users can freely position the instruments on
the console in the order that best suits them.
• The users can benefit from operation with more than
five instruments, since changing the instrument hose
is extremely easy.
• New instruments can easily be added.
• The user-programmable settings are individually
memorised for each hose.
The well-thought design of the Planmeca Compact c unit
helps the dental team to follow rigorous infection control
procedures. All parts exposed to contamination are
removable for cleaning.
The uniform and smooth surfaces are easy to
clean. The unit is made of corrosion-free materials,
and the metal body has a resistant and hygienic epoxy
paint finish. As the cover of the instrument console
is seamless and the control panel has a membrane
keyboard, they are effortlessly kept clean. The instrument
holders can be removed for cleaning. Moreover,
the seamless design of the standard upholstery is easy
to maintain aseptic, and the upholstery stands up to
repeated use of recommended cleaning agents.
The unit control panel includes intuitive, powerful
controls of the unit functions. The multifunctional
foot control provides easy-to-use and aseptic
hands-free controls of the chair, unit, and instruments.
The stable, reliable mechanical construction and logical
functionality contribute to effortless and intuitive use.
The advanced digital control system allows the foot
control functions to be customised so that the user
can create an operation logic that best suits them.
The foot control is connected to the unit column or
the cart base, depending on the user’s habits. These
features make the foot control ideal for a diversity of user
An optional 6th instrument position for
the Planmeca Intracam AF intraoral video camera can be
added on the instrument cart.
Combining dental team working ergonomics with
patient comfort is an important design consideration for
any patient chair. In Planmeca Compact c, the ultra-thin
and anatomically correct patient chair backrest with
narrow upper part ingeniously fulfils both aspects.
Thanks to the side lifting mechanism, there is no chair
base, thus the dental team can benefit from exceptional
legroom and easy-to-maintain clear floor surface.
The wide backrest features a compensating movement
that provides support for the patient.
The independent cart is an ideal solution for oral
surgeous and other specialists. In this fine design, the
mobile instrument console is connected to a special
junction box, which makes the unit highly attractive to
hospitals, implantologist clinics, and other specialised
users. The independent cart can be complemented with
Planmeca Chair or any other stand-alone patient chair.
When combined with Planmeca Chair, the chair positions
can be controlled through the cart.
• Independent mobile instrument cart when there is no
need for a bowl.
• Remote junction box with horizontal/vertical
• Optional Multiquick connector available for removable
cart connection; it provides further increased flexibility.
• Optional Steripump system for sterile solution supply
for a scaler with an external spray.
The independent cart with Planmeca Chair
provides the best possible set-up for specialised dental
treatments. Planmeca Chair cleverly combines patient
comfort and the dental team’s working ergonomics. With
its slim backrest and intuitive controls, the chair provides
good ergonomics and supports modern, efficient
Planmeca Chair design allows for gracious free space
under it, contributing to superior legroom and easy
access. Thus it is easy to adopt correct working postures,
which promotes optimised ergonomics.
Planmeca Chair features an exclusive 180-degree swivel.
This provides unique freedom in operatory design and
is especially appreciated where space is limited and
when access to an intraoral X-ray unit or other peripheral
equipment is needed.
The swivel is released with a foot-operated mechanism
located on the chair base. The swivel foot switch allows
easy and aseptic operation of swivel functions for both
the doctor and the assistant.
Optionally, Planmeca Chair can be equipped
with a surgical intravenous armrest for immobilising
the patient’s arm during sedation, for example.
The Plus package enables enhanced specific controls
for the unit control panel. These controls further extend
the unit versatility. The Plus package includes
• individual chair position programming for six users
• an advanced low-speed control for micromotor
• instrument power/speed limitation and programming
• six programmable timers.
In case the unit is equipped with an optional assistant’s
control panel, either control panel can be used to
command these enhanced Plus package features.
The Planmeca EA-50LT micromotor features small size,
high torque, and quiet operation, making the motor
highly attractive for a broad range of dental applications.
It employs the latest technology of carbon-free
brushless electric motors. This technology enables high
performance, exceptional reliability, low operating costs,
and a long lifespan.

Planmeca adapts latest generation LED polymerisation
lights that offer power, speed, and silent operation. The
high intensity and the correct light emission spectrum
of the LED guarantee fast polymerisation of light-cured
dental materials. LED technology generates very little
heat, so there is no need for a cooling fan. The absence of
a fan makes the handpiece silent and lightweight.
The optionally available viscoelastic Ultra upholstery

It is filled with special viscoelastic foam that takes
the patient’s body shape and restores its original shape
after the treatment. The Ultra upholstery provides
