OXCON

PARACHUTIST OXYGEN CONSOLE

Overview

The Parachutist Oxygen Console (OXCON) is a lightweight system which has been in use around the world for over 25 years. It is a portable, multi-station oxygen system designed to contain and distribute regulated oxygen for pre-breathing onboard a transport aircraft as a supplement for the man-mounted PHAOS system.

The multi-station manifolds provide quick connects on each side of the housing. Each side has a low-pressure gauge to allow monitoring of the regulated outlet pressure. Its components are contained within a compact, rugged structure that can be easily installed for missions requiring oxygen.

The 6-Man OXCON is tested and certified for use by the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center.

MEETING THE CHALLENGES FOR HIGH ALTITUDE PARACHUTISTS

  • 8-Man, 6-Man, or 2-Man configurations
  • The manual on/off valve is rated to 5000 PSI heavy duty service
  • Monitor the constant system pressure of 70 PSIG with the in-line flow indicators
  • Rugged construction, with protective guards around controls, gauges and connections
  • Stainless steel fittings for easy maintenance
  • High pressure gauge indicates the available supply pressure from the pressure reservoirs
