Mountain High Oxygen is pleased to announce the release of our next generation of EDS (Electronic Delivery System) Pulse Demand oxygen controllers, the O2D1-2G and O2D2-2G.
These changes are common to both the O2D1 and O2D2 family of EDS.
Our new Pulse Demand systems still incorporate all of the benefits of our legacy controllers but with many improvements. Like the series of the old VW Beetle, it's the same, but better.
We started with the control switch: The EDS unit now incorporates a MIL spec ruggedized easy-to- grip rotary control switch providing improved reliability, increased ease of function and visibility. This switch also has very positive position detents for excellent tactile feedback making it resistant to changes from causal rubbing or bumping.
While we were at it, we improved the manifold design to allow for better breathing response and effort tracking. This combined with a new circuit board, as well as a new micro-controller, gives improved power-conserving operations with even less RFI emissions, better respire-metric tracking and dispensing of oxygen in finer resolution resulting in smoother steps from altitude and breathing changes.
Other improvements include a dedicated bi-color system battery status light allowing much easier monitoring and definitive indication of battery condition without being confused as a station operation. The original O2Dx units encoded the low battery notification into the station lights. This status light also responds to each control switch change with a beep and green flash to confirm your actions. Also the audio alerts and warnings are louder, more crisp and dynamic to human hearing in an effort of being heard over modest cabin noise. The O2D2 has a 600 Ohm stereo external audio jack as well as a USB compatible (5VDC) external power port.
More intuitive F-Mode settings labeled as 1, 2, 3 & 4 for use with face masks or when more oxygen is required.
Abandoned unit auto shut off: If you should forget to turn your EDS off after use, it will now go into auto shut-down (drawing very little power) after 3 hours of detecting no use in an attempt to save the batteries for another flight.
