Immediate verification SCBA are fit for use

The PosiChek NFPA-Compliant SCBA Test Bench has USB communication capability. Honeywell Posi3 USB flow testers can automatically test all major SCBA air packs without disassembly or special tools,including Scott, MSA, Avon ISI, Interspiro, Draeger, North or Honeywell (formerly Survivair). The Posi3 USB evaluates the operational fitness of an SCBA through dynamic tests and functional checks against performance criteria set down by NFPA 1852 and NIOSH.

Honeywell's Biosystems PosiChek family of SCBA test equipment has been the industry standard for thousands of fire departments, refineries, chemical plants and nuclear power stations worldwide since it was first introduced in 1988. The Biosystems Posi3 USB incorporates a number of hardware and software improvements to keep pace with increasingly rigorous testing criteria.

NFPA 1852 mandates that all compliant SCBA be tested on a calibrated breathing machine before being put into service, and at least once per year thereafter. Posi3 USB meets the same stringent NFPA standards as PosiChek3.

The Honeywell Posi3 USB advantage

The Posi3 USB adds USB capability, is portable and easy to carry
Industry's only NFPA-Compliant SCBA test bench
Tests the performance of any brand of SCBA
Automatic pass/fail
The "Quick Test" cycle can evaluate a fully-assembled SCBA in less than 2-minutes
Low Pressure (2216 psig) and High Pressure (4500 psig/5500 psig)
Medium range transducer: lets you dynamically test first stage regulator performance
Includes Honeywell's Biosystems 32-bit SCBA test software
Record keeping: Test results are automatically stored right on your own personal computer
Custom software available directly from virtually all SCBA manufacturers

Testing is easy and automatic:

All you need to do is attach the fully-assembled SCBA to be tested to the Posi3 USB test-head, and choose the tests you wish to conduct. The Complete SCBA Test provides a comprehensive evaluation of the SCBA as required by NFPA 1852 without disassembly..

Facepiece, mask leak-check
Exhalation check-valve opening pressure
Static facepiece pressure test
First breath on regulator activation pressure
Exhalation check-valve opening pressure
Bypass flow-rate
Pressure gauge accuracy
Low pressure alarm activation psi accuracy
Breathing resistance at standard (40 LPM) work-rate
Breathing resistance at maximum (100 LPM) work-rate
Medium pressure transducer lets you dynamically test first stage regulator performance 

Posi3 USB "Quick Test" evaluates fully assembled SCBA in less than 2-minutes: The "Quick Test" performance testing cycle consumes less than 1% of your air supply, and evaluates fully-assembled SCBA in less than 2-minutes! Because so little air is consumed, you can test an SCBA without needing to refill the cylinder before you put it back into service. 


Simplify Record Keeping

The Posi3 USB uses your personal computer to run the tests, store the results, and print reports documenting SCBA performance. Posi3 USB software is available in the generic testing version to meet NIOSH certification. The manufacturers model specific SCBA software versions to meet NFPA 1852 certification, including Scott, Drager, Interspiro, Avon ISI, MSA, Honeywell Respiratory (Survivair) or North can be obtained from Honeywell providing you send a copy of the manufacturer's training certificate with the order. If upgrading from a previous PosiChek3 version, you will need to provide a copy of a test report with the manufacturer's name and serial number on it. All Scott software must be obtained directly from Scott. Contact us for details.

Note: Posi3 USB can NOT be used with the older PosiChek3 software. You can transfer serial numbers and some data, but keep a copy of the PosiChek3 software on another computer to be able to access the older reports.

Honeywell Posi3 USB Calibration Requirements

To maintain accuracy and NIST traceability, the Posi3 USB must be calibrated annually. Before returning the Posi3 USB to Honeywell, it is important to call the factory first to obtain a Return Authorization (RA) number. When calling have the serial numbers and details of any problems being encountered, if any. The number to call in the US is 1-888-749-8878, then press option "3" for the PosiChek group then option "1" for the service return group.

Shipping the Posi3 USB to Honeywell for Annual Calibration

The Posi3 USB Annual Service Fee includes return shipping anywhere in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. Posi3 systems shipped outside of the United States are subject to additional freight, duty and tax fees and are subject to export laws. The Posi3 USB Annual Service Fee does not cover the cost of instrument upgrades, nor does it cover damage or defects caused by abuse, improper packaging, alterations or unauthorized repairs.

Since January 1, 2008, Sperian Instruments now Honeywell Analytics implemented a "No Haggle Annual Service Plan" that includes calibration, return shipping in the United States, insurance AND any maintenance-related repairs needed by the Posi3 USB. Please call or e-mail inquiries for the current pricing.

Although the Posi3 USB is built to last, it also includes precision components that are designed to detect minute pressure variations. It is important to properly package the Posi3 USB for return shipment to Honeywell Analytics. The Posi3 USB is delivered in special cartons that are designed to protect it from damage during transit. Save the shipping cartons and use them when returning the Posi3 USB to Honeywell Analytics for annual calibration. In addition to the standard shipping box, Honeywell Analytics offers rugged shipping cases made by Pelican®. Photo of the cases are below.

Improper packaging can result in the following:
