properly connected.
Charging the battery
Refer to illustration C.
1. Attach the power supply unit adapter to the DC plug and connect into the battery
DC input/output port.
2. Connect the AC or DC power cord to the power supply unit.
3. Plug the other end of the AC or DC power cord into the mains power outlet.
Notes:
•• Charging takes less than 4 hours from 0% battery level to greater than 95%.
•• To discontinue charging, unplug the power cord from the mains power outlet.
Providing power to the device
Refer to illustration D.
1. Select the correct output voltage for your device using the voltage output selector
from the RPS II rear panel.
2. Connect the appropriate DC output cable into the battery.
3. Connect the other end of the DC output cable into the device.
4. Set the DC on/off switch to on.
Providing backup power to the device (for systems with both AC and DC inputs)
Refer to illustration E.
1. Select the correct output voltage for your device using the voltage output selector
from the RPS II rear panel.
2. Connect the appropriate DC output cable into the battery.
3. Connect the other end of the DC output cable into the device.
4. Connect the AC power cord to the rear of the device.
5. Plug the other end of the AC power cord into the mains power outlet.
6. Set the DC on/off switch to on.
Note: When powering the device regularly check the battery charge level.
Using two batteries
Refer to illustration F.
1. Place one battery on top of another.
If required, use the Velcro strap to hold the batteries securely.
2. Plug the battery coupler cables into each of the battery DC input/output ports.

Using humidifiers
With the exception of AirSense 10, AirCurve 10, S9 and H5i™, when a device integrated
with a humidifier is not connected to the mains power supply, the humidifier will only
operate in passive unheated mode despite the warm-up message appearing on the
device. When the device is connected to the mains power supply, it will return to
active heated mode.
AirSense 10, AirCurve 10, S9 and H5i devices operate normally in active heated mode
when connected to the battery or to the mains power supply.
Cleaning and maintenance
WARNING
Do not immerse the RPS II in water, and do not use liquids to clean any part of
the product.
1. Disconnect the battery from the power supply unit and the device. Remove all
cables.
2. Wipe the exterior of the battery with a clean cloth.
Storing
CAUTION
Batteries must be charged to 100% indicated by four green LEDs and switched off
before storing. You must recharge the batteries to 100% again after six months
of storage. When not in use, all Lithium-Ion batteries self-discharge over time. If
not periodically recharged (ie, every six months), the RPS II will eventually selfdischarge to the point that it can no longer be recharged. If this occurs the RPS II
is no longer usable and is unrecoverable.
Store the RPS II in a cool, dry place.
Note: A fully charged battery when left switched on, self-discharges to 0% of full
capacity within four weeks of storage. When switched off, the battery self-discharges
to 0% of full capacity within six months of storage.
Servicing
The RPS II is intended to provide safe and reliable operation when used and
maintained in accordance with the instructions provided by ResMed. There is no
servicing necessary during the lifetime of the battery.
The service life of the RPS II exceeds 500 recharge cycles. After 500 recharge cycles,
the battery will last about 60% of the time from its original condition. A full charge in
an older battery will not last as long as in a new battery. ResMed recommends that the
RPS II be tested for battery duration regularly. As with all electrical equipment, if any
irregularity becomes apparent, you should exercise caution and contact an authorized
ResMed service representative.
Traveling
Consult with your carrier if you intend to take the battery on board with your device.

Troubleshooting
If there is a problem, try the following suggestions. If the problem cannot be solved,
contact your equipment supplier or ResMed. Do not attempt to open the battery.

cooler than 95oF (35oC).
Battery turns off and stops powering device
When the battery is in the
RPS II carry bag, the ambient
temperature is warmer than 95oF
(35oC).
Remove the battery from the RPS II carry bag or
power the device where the ambient temperature is
cooler than 95oF (35oC).
Battery charge level indicator is inaccurate
Ambient temperature is at
extreme condition [eg, 23oF (–5oC),
104oF (+40oC)].

General warnings and cautions
WARNINGS
•• Lithium ion batteries have built-in safety protection circuits, but can still be
dangerous if they are not used correctly. Damaged batteries can become
inoperative or catch fire.
•• Due to risk of fire or electric shock:
-- do not place the RPS II near open fire or heaters.
-- do not expose the RPS II to direct sunlight or heat (for example behind a
car window).
-- do not expose the RPS II to water, rain or high moisture levels.
-- do not short-circuit the RPS II.
-- do not use a damaged RPS II.
-- do not open the RPS II, AC charger or the DC converter.
•• Make sure to revert to AC power when the remaining capacity of RPS II and/or
device internal battery is low.
•• Make sure to periodically recharge the battery due to effects of self-discharging.
•• As the battery ages, the available capacity decreases. When the remaining
battery capacity is getting low, do not rely on the RPS II as the primary supply.
•• Ensure the internal battery of any connected device is kept charged up to
provide backup power in the event of loss of power from RPS II.
•• Only use a supplied ResMed 90W AC power supply unit or DC converter for
charging the RPS II.
English 7
•• Explosion hazard—do not use in the vicinity of flammable anesthetics.
•• The RPS II system is not intended for use by persons (including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience
and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the RPS II system by a person responsible for their safety.
•• Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the RPS II
system.
•• Care should be taken to keep the power supply unit adapter dry. The RPS II
system, while connected to a device and discharging, is rated to IP21 (Drip
proof) according to IEC60529. When charging, the RPS II system is rated to
IP20 (No protection) due to the power supply unit adapter which is rated to
IP20. The AC power supply, RPS II battery and DC converter are rated to IP21.
CAUTIONS
•• Avoid hard, physical impact on the battery.
•• Before using for the first time, ensure that the RPS II and its components are
in good condition and operational. If there are any defects, the system should
not be used.
•• The RPS II is to be used only in accordance with the intended use stated in
this guide. Damage to equipment or injury can result from modifications to
the equipment or operation.
•• Always fully charge the RPS II before use, or before relying as a backup
power.
•• Monitor the charge level of the RPS II. When the charge level is low, ensure
that continuity of power can be maintained.
•• When in use, always plug the cable from the RPS II into the device. Keep the
RPS II power switch turned on to ensure it can provide backup power.
•• When transporting, turn off the RPS II, unplug all cables, and pack in the carry
bag.
•• Medical electrical equipment requires special precautions regarding EMC and
needs to be installed and operated according to the information provided in
this user guide. Portable and mobile communications equipment can affect
medical electrical equipment. If EMC interference is observed, for example
static on radios, move the RPS II away from other equipment.
Note: The above are general warnings and cautions. Specific warnings, cautions, and
notes appear with the relevant instructions in the guide.
