Mountain High Equipment & Supply’s newest technology is the two-person portable MH EDS O2D2 Pulse-Demand FADOC (Full Authority Digital Oxygen Control) Oxygen Delivery System designed for Beech, Mooney and Piper aircraft.
The MH EDS O2D2, with the patented digital electronic “Pulse-Demand” FADOC oxygen delivery system, enables the pilot and passenger/crew to fly at pressure altitudes up to 25,000 feet. Different from standard constant flow systems, the O2D2 Pulse-Demand system does not waste oxygen during the breathing cycle, company officials said. Studies show that 90% of the oxygen supplied by the O2D2 is transferred to the blood. The average user will enjoy a conservative consumption drop of four times compared to constant flow oxygen systems, officials note. The system operates, with two people, for up to 100-150 hours on three AA alkaline batteries.
There are no oxygen flow indicators to watch or manually operated constant flow valves to adjust due to altitude changes. Two push buttons cycle the O2D2 through the various modes that automatically deliver the required supplemental oxygen pulses for various altitudes.
The complete system consists of an aluminum oxygen cylinder (buyer has a choice of sizes, with upgrades available to very lightweight composite cylinders), primary reducing regulator, low pressure service line, connection fittings, the MH EDS O2D2 Pulse-Demand FADOC unit, breathing cannulas, face masks, and a tote bag with adjustable straps for back-of-seat installation. Complete systems start at $1,189.
A variety of options are available to meet specific pilot needs, including lightweight composite cylinders, regulators, adapters, cannulas and masks.
