Transportable concentrator machines

Transportable oxygen concentrator machines are similar to standard oxygen concentrator machines, but they feature a rechargeable battery pack which allows oxygen users to use them outside of the home for several hours (exact duration is dependent on flow settings).

Transportable oxygen concentrator machines are not suitable for everyone, a specific ambulatory assessment should be completed by a Healthcare Professional before one is ordered.

The flow rate on a transportable oxygen concentrator machine may vary from what is required using a standard static home oxygen concentrator machine or oxygen cylinder. It is important that the patient only uses the flow rate requested by their Healthcare Professional, and only change this if instructed to by them and shown how to by our Healthcare Technician.

Typical battery pack recharge time

The typical time to recharge the battery pack, in order to achieve 80% capacity, from a fully discharged battery pack is between 1.4 hours and 5 hours, depending upon the device flow setting.

Caution

  • Never use any power cord if it is damaged or frayed. Improper use of the power cord may result in a fire or electrical shock hazard.
  • Do not connect the Eclipse to an extension cord or to an electrical outlet controlled by a switch. Always unplug the AC power cord from the wall before disconnecting the plug from the Eclipse.
  • Use the 10amp position on the DC power supply for a 15amp vehicle fuse rating and use the 15amp position for a 20amp or greater vehicle fuse rating. Please note: the latest version of this power supply does not feature this switch.

Transporting the Eclipse device

You can transport the Eclipse device provided you follow this advice:

Secure the Eclipse and the DC power supply in the vehicle and be sure there is adequate air flow to the device and that the air inlet and exhaust vents are not blocked. Blocking of the air inlet or exhaust vent may impair device performance. Ensure the Eclipse is secured safely behind the front seats or on the back seat with a secure fastening.

Do not leave the Eclipse or DC power supply plugged into the vehicle without the engine running or attempt to start the vehicle while the DC power supply is connected to the vehicle. Doing so will drain the vehicle’s battery.

If the vehicle’s DC power source drops below 11.5 volts (brown out condition), the Eclipse will revert to battery pack operation (if the battery pack is present). The external power is present indicator may remain on.

Do not leave the Eclipse, or battery pack, in the seating area or boot of a motor vehicle during a hot day.

Caution

  • Do not leave the equipment on show when a vehicle is unattended.
  • The storage temperature range for the device is -20°C (-4°F) to +60°C (+140°F) and 95% non-condensing humidity.
  • Always store the Eclipse in a cool and dry location.

Safety guidelines

Hazards or unsafe practices could result in serious injury or property damage. Please follow these guidelines:

  • Keep the Eclipse and the power cord away from hot surfaces or naked flames.
  • Do not use the Eclipse if it has a damaged power cord or plug.
  • The Eclipse should be located in a well-ventilated area to allow for adequate air intake. Avoid the intake of airborne pollutants, smoke and fumes.
  • Only use this device with accessories specified by us.
  • If the Eclipse has been dropped, damaged or exposed to water, please contact us for inspection of the device.
  • Do not drop or insert any objects into any opening on the device.
  • Do not block the air inlet or the exhaust vent of the Eclipse when it is on a soft surface, such as carpet, bed, couch or vehicle seat.
  • Do not cover the device with a blanket, towel or quilt etc.
  • When using the Eclipse in any vehicle, be sure it is properly secured, belted or otherwise restrained.
  • Protect the Eclipse and the power supplies from all fluid spills or drips to avoid possible shock hazards.
  • Do not disassemble, puncture or crush the battery pack. Battery pack  electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed and can be harmful to skin and eyes. Keep the battery pack away from children.
  • Exposing the battery pack to water or other liquids may cause personal injury.
  • Charging the battery pack below 10°C (50°F) or above 40°C (104°F) may degrade the performance of the battery pack.
  • Do not drop the battery pack or expose it to mechanical shock.
