1.
WARNINGS
If these instructions are not followed or the unit is used incorrectly the system may not offer protection to EN12941/42 or EN 146.
Power units offer NO protection unless a main filter(s) is fitted.
In a power off situation the headpiece offers no respiratory protection and rapid CO2 build-up and oxygen depletion may also result. This is an
abnormal situation.
Power off is an abnormal situation regardless of whether a full hood, half suit or mask is used.
At high work rates the pressure inside the headpiece may become negative at peak inhalation.
The system should not be used in oxygen deficient or oxygen enriched atmospheres.
The user must ensure that the nature of the hazard is identified and that the system offers an adequate level of protection.
This unit should not be used where the nature of the hazard is unknown.
This unit is NOT intrinsically safe and therefore should not be used in explosive atmospheres
Be aware that the hose protrudes from the back of the headpiece and take care to avoid snagging.
In high wind velocities the assumed protection levels may not be achieved.
The full hood and half suit provide no protection against impact to head, face or eyes.
Respiratory protection will be reduced unless the hood is correctly fitted and properly maintained.
Do not confuse the markings on any filter which relate to standards other than EN12941 or EN12942 with the classification of this device when
used with that filter. The classification for EN12941 will begin with "TH" and for EN12942 will begin with "TM". Filters should only be fitted to the
power unit, do not attempt to fit them directly to a hood or helmet.

APPLICATIONS AND LIMITATIONS
When used with filters M23P3/5, M23P2/5 or M23P3SL/6 the Magnum respirator will offer protection against dusts, particles, fumes and aerosols
(solid and liquid based) to the levels detailed.
No protection is given against gases or vapours.
The Magnum system should not be used where airborne concentration of contaminant exceeds the Assigned Protection Factor (APF) x the
Occupational exposure limit (OEL)
The system is recommended for use in the temperature range +5° to +35°C and in conditions where relative humidity does not exceed 90%.
Protection Factors
The efficiency of all types of respirators is classified by the protection factor rating system. There are two main classifications for protection factors,
these are:
Laboratory Protection Factor (also known as Nominal Protection Factor)
This is the minimum level of protection the equipment has to demonstrate for each of a panel of test subjects under laboratory conditions to gain
approval to the appropriate class of the performance standard.
Assigned Protection Factor (APF)
BS4275 or EN 529 acknowledges that laboratory performance is not always achievable in real use.
These figures are taken from BS4275: 1997 and are the minimum level of protection which it is calculated 95% of wearers who are trained in the use
of the equipment should achieve in practice, with well-maintained equipment. These figures are valid for use in the UK and may differ in other
countries.
For further information regarding protection factors please contact our technical advice service.

PREPARATION FOR USE
Battery
The power unit is fitted with a rechargeable battery pack, which requires charging before use. Ensure you are using the correct charger for your
battery pack (See Section 2).
Standard Charger (M23P2/4BC or M23HD4BC) –
When charging the battery connected to a Turbo unit the turbo unit must be turned off.
Plug the charger into an appropriate mains supply. Connect the battery charger plug to the charger socket on the battery pack. The LED indicator
will light if the charging circuit is satisfactory.
Batteries are supplied in a discharged condition, and must initially be charged for 20 hours before use. Subsequent charges only require 16 hours.
IOvercharging the batteries may permanently damage them.
Intelligent Charger (M23UIC) – This charger will charge all Magnum battery packs and will operate on both UK and European Voltages.
To change the mains plug from European to UK and vice versa unplug charger from mains and push up switch marked “Open” in the direction of
the arrow the plug should then pop out. Insert the replacement plug into the charger pushing firmly until it “clicks home” Batteries may be charged
on or off the turbo unit.
Batteries must be charged indoors at an ambient of between 10ºC and 30ºC. Do not cover charger.
Important : In excessive cold or warm environments the recharging device may suppress the charging current to standby level so the battery will
be not be charged. Never charge in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
To use : Plug the charger into the main power supply (100 – 240V AC – 50-60 HZ). When no battery is connected, the LED (Light emitting Diode)
indicators light on the front of the charger should not be lit.
When charging the battery connected to a Turbo unit the turbo unit must be turned off.
Plug the charging connector into the socket in the rear of the battery pack.
The RED LED indicator will flash for a few seconds indicating that the charger is checking the status of the battery pack. The RED LED should
then light continuously indicating that the battery is being charged.
When the battery is fully charged the RED LED will go out and the GREEN LED will indicate. At this point the battery will be in “trickle charge”
mode, this will maintain the battery’s charge. The battery can be left permanently connected, if desired, until required for use.
Note : A new battery, a battery stored for a very long period or a battery that has been run completely flat so that is deeply discharged* may not
function correctly.
If when starting to charge such a battery the RED LED continues flashing for more than 10 seconds the charger has detected either a very deeply
discharged battery or a faulty battery.

POWER UNITS
Allow the charge to continue as the charger will try and trickle charge the battery up to a acceptable pre-set level before commencing the battery
charge, when the RED LED will continuously illuminate (this may take several hours) . If the charger refuses to charge the battery it may be faulty
– contact Centurion Safety Products for further help and assistance.
It is possible that a battery in this state may require several charge attempts to fully charge the battery.
*It is not recommended to deeply discharge a battery by running the power unit until the battery is completely flat since this may permanently
damage the battery.
If the power unit is to be stored without use for more than 3 months the battery must be detached from the power unit before storage.

AIR FLOW INFORMATION AND WARNING DEVICES
MAGNUM 1000 POWER UNIT
The Power unit is designed to exceed the requirements of EN 146 in that it will provide a flow rate of at least 140 litres/min for at least 4 hours
under all conditions, assuming a fully charged battery at start (MMDD = 4Hr). Typical Battery Life with M23P2/4B compact battery when fully
charged and run with Magnum 1000 Power Unit and appropriate filter and head piece is 8 Hrs (this will depend on various factors such as
condition of the filter, age of the battery etc.).
Once the battery has been charged and the correctly selected filter has been fitted the airflow should be checked before use.
AIR FLOW TEST
Principle of operation
The Airflow indicator is designed to be situated in the centre of the filtered air stream and as the air stream passes over the indicator, it causes it
to rise proportionally.
Indicated Airflow then can be read by means of a graduated scale situated on the body of the indicator.
Warnings and precautions
To ensure that your air flow indicator is maintained to give its optimum accuracy, the following precautions must be adopted: •
When not in use, the indicator must be stored in conditions to prevent physical damage.
•
When not in use, the indicator must be stored in conditions +5 to 35 degrees C @Rh<90%.
•
When not in use, the indicator must be stored away from direct sunlight.
•
The indicator must be kept clean and free from any contamination.
•
No adjustments, alterations or additional markings must be made.
Method of use
Prior to use
•
Visually inspect the Airflow indicator for any damage, contamination or distortion.
•
Ensure that the battery pack fitted is in good condition and fully charged.
•
Ensure a filter is fitted.
•
Position Vertically the Magnum unit for testing. (See diagram I).
•
Unlock the outlet ring (See diagram I) and remove Air hose (if attached) ensure that the outlet ring is in the UNLOCKED position at all
times during the air flow test.
•
Switch unit on and allow to run for a minimum of 10secs.
•
Locate Airflow indicator in the outlet ring with the letters of the graduated scale in the vertical and facing the front of the unit.
•
Observe the airflow indicated from the graduated scale (See diagram II, III ). Ensure that when reading the scale your eye is level

with the top of the outlet ring.
NB It is possible that the air flow of the power unit when fitted with a fully charged battery pack and a new or servicable filter/pre-filter will be such
that when the airflow indicator is located in the outlet ring (See diagram I) it will be expelled.
This is not a fault condition but an indication of airflow above the designed limits of the indicator, it is an indication of sufficient airflow.
If you have both replaced the filter and fully charged the battery and line B is still not visible the unit and battery should be returned to the
supplier.

To check for blocked filter, charge battery and retest.
Once the battery has been charged and the filter has been fitted the airflow should be checked before each use and
when a change or suspected change in airflow conditions is detected.
MAGNUM 2000 POWER UNIT
The Power unit is designed to exceed the requirements of EN 12941 in that it will provide a flow rate of at least 140 litres/min for at least 4 hours
under all conditions, assuming a fully charged battery at start. (Minimum design duration = 4 hours).
Duration of up to 8 hours can be typically achieved dependent on various conditions.
The Power unit will give an audible and visual alarm when either the clogging of the filter causes the airflow to drop to the minimum design flowrate
or when the battery voltage drops to a level below which it could not safely power the Power unit. When either of these conditions occur a
frequently repeating audible bleep is emitted and in addition the yellow LED (Light emitting diode) on the top of the Power unit flashes if the filter is
clogged or the red LED flashes if the battery is low.
When either alarm condition occurs during use the wearer should leave the contaminated area immediately and replace the filter or recharge the
battery accordingly.
When first turning the unit on the alarm will beep to indicate the correct functioning of the alarm system. If the beep stops after a few seconds the
airflow is sufficient to proceed with using the unit.
MAGNUM 8500 POWER UNITS
The Magnum 8500 units are activated using a rotary control knob, which should be set to the correct setting as indicated on
the top of the unit. ( see diagram )

When Used With Full facemask. ( clockwise setting )
The Power unit is designed to exceed the requirements of EN12942 TM3 in that it will provide a minimum design flow rate of at 95 litres/min
when used with a full-face mask. for at least 4 hours under all conditions, assuming a fully charged battery at start. (Minimum design duration =
4 hours). Typical battery duration depends on a number of factors but is usually around 8 Hrs.
The Power unit will give an audible and visual alarm when the battery voltage drops to a level below which it could not safely power the unit.
When this condition occurs a frequently repeating audible bleep is emitted and in addition the Red LED on the top of the Power unit flashes.
When the alarm condition occurs during use the wearer should leave the contaminated area immediately and recharge the battery. The
electronic clogged filter low flow alarm is not enabled on the full-face mask setting. An airflow indicator is provided with the unit, which can be
used to check the flow prior to the use of the unit.
To check the airflow for full facemasks ensure that the filter and battery are fitted and turn the power unit on. The head piece hose should not
be fitted. Insert the airflow indicator into the outlet of the power unit with the letters on the label upright (See diagram I on page 6) and the label
facing toward the front of the unit (where the filter is fitted). If line A is fully visible then the unit has sufficient airflow. If line A is not visible
replace the filters. If you have both replaced the filter and fully charged the battery and line A is still not visible the unit and battery should be
returned to the supplier.
