The EDS-D1a system provides oxygen to the general aviation pilot for flight operations at pressure altitudes up to 30,000 feet with safety and comfort.
Different from the standard constant-flow systems, the EDS-D1a wastes no oxygen during the two-thirds of the breathing cycle (exhaling and pausing before inhaling again) when oxygen is not being delivered to the lungs. Studies show that 90% of the oxygen supplied by the EDS-D1a is transferred to the blood. Mountain High has noted savings up to 10 times, but claims the average user will enjoy a conservative consumption drop of 4-6 times compared to the constant-flow systems. The system operates for up to 50 hours on the single 9-volt alkaline battery.
The EDS-D1a reduces oxygen-related cockpit workload because there are no flow indicators to watch or valves to manually adjust due to altitude changes. Two push buttons cycle the EDS-D1a through the various modes that automatically deliver the required supplemental oxygen pulses for various altitudes.
The complete basic system consists of a an aluminum main oxygen cylinder (buyer has a choice of sizes), primary reducing regulator, low pressure service line, the EDS-D1a unit, breathing cannula, face mask, tote bag and a cylinder carry bag.
Options include extremely lightweight composite cylinders in a number of sizes, regulators, adaptors, in-panel systems, brackets, connectors, masks and service lines to name a few.
