Replacing the Butterfly iQ+/iQ3 Cable

CAUTION: Refrain from excessively removing and installing a cable, as this will lead to premature wear of the o-ring and enable water and dust ingress.

NOTE: Probe cable swap is only available on the Butterfly iQ+/iQ+ Vet, and iQ3. Attempting to detach the cable on the Butterfly iQ/iQ Vet is not supported and may result to permanent damage to the device.

The Butterfly iQ/iQ Vet cable is not removable. Butterfly iQ+ and iQ3 cables are not intended for use with the Butterfly iQ/iQ Vet. Please be advised that in accordance with the User Manual, no additional device modification is allowed. Removal of the iQ or iQ Vet cable will cause damage to your device and will void your warranty. Modification to the Butterfly iQ or iQ Vet device may cause the system to perform improperly or may cause injury to the patient or operator. 

The cable on the Butterfly iQ+/iQ+ Vet, and iQ3 probe can be replaced in the case of damage, or when a mobile device with a different connector type needs to be used.

To replace the Butterfly iQ+ cable:

1. Remove the existing cable from the Butterfly iQ+/iQ+ Vet probe. Wrap the probe cable around your palm twice while holding the probe firmly in the other hand. Pull the two apart. Do not use tools to grab the strain relief or the cord, as doing so might damage the cable.


2. Align the connector and the probe prior to installation using the diagram below.mceclip1.png

3. Push the cable firmly into the probe body. When the cable is fully installed, it should be expected that there will be a small gap between the strain relief and the probe body.



To replace the Butterfly iQ3 cable:

  1. Remove the existing cable from the Butterfly iQ3 probe. To do so, hold the probe in one hand and press the cable release button at the back of the probe while pulling the cable away from the probe with the other hand. If the cable is not easily removed, try firmly pressing the cable release button.
  2. To install a new cable, align the connector with the opening on the probe and push the two together. A slight click should be felt and heard, indicating the cable is fully seated.
