READ BEFORE YOU START
The handpiece and ultrasonic transducer (stack) are water cooled devices and must always have adequate water
flow to function properly. The amount of water sent to the handpiece must be regulated according to the power
level. If the power level is increased, the amount of water must also be increased. Not having enough water flow
throughout the scaling handpiece will cause the handpiece to get hot, degrade transducer (stack) life and void the
warranty. Turn scaler power down to minimum and press the footswitch until water flows out, then turn the scaler
power up as needed.
When active, the ultrasonic transducer (stack) vibrates at over a million cycles per minute, if it touches soft tissue
or skin it will cause burns due to vibrational friction. The tip is not hot but the ultrasonic vibration will cause burns if
touched, this is due to the friction between the skin and the vibrating tip. This is normal for all ultrasonic scalers.
Never let the scaling tip touch soft tissue or skin, Engler Engineering Corporation is not responsible for any
damage caused by improper use of this device and / or its accessories.
Never twist or bend your transducer (stack). Be careful not to twist or bend the stack when inserting or removing it
from the handpiece. Pull the stack straight out to remove it. Bending it or inserting it incorrectly into the
handpiece may irreparably damage the stack and degrade it’s ability to vibrate. Improper insertion of the stack
may also damage the handpiece as well as cause it to get hot. Damage caused by bending the stack is not
covered by the warranty.
Do not alter the scaling tip. The tip is shaped to deliver the optimum vibrating power level and keep its optimum
frequency. Deforming (sharpening, bending) the tip will cause the handpiece to get hot, degrade vibration power
and void the warranty.
Dropping the scaler handpiece with the stack / tip may alter or damage the stack / tip causing the handpiece to
get hot, degrade vibration power and void your warranty.
Remove the stack / tip and clean / disinfect after every use.
Ultrasonic transducer (stack), tips, and water filter, are normal wear and tear items. In order to achieve optimum
performance they should be replaced regularly.
The water regulator has multiple turns. Turn the water regulator knob counterclockwise to open and clockwise to
close.
Suggestions when using the portable pump up water bottle; make sure the bottle is filled at least half way, pump
the bottle completely BEFORE each procedure, and be sure plenty of water is flowing out of the tip during
procedures.
The typical life of a transducer (stack) is six months to a year. To achieve optimum performance replace it every
six months to a year or as needed. Do not leave the stack inside the handpiece for long periods of time. The Orings may dry out and make it difficult to remove. Lubricate the O-rings on the stack with mineral oil or petroleum
jelly.
Do not coil tightly, kink or pull the hoses. Kinking the hoses will restrict or cut off water flow which may cause
overheating / damage to the handpiece.
As a safety precaution, all water is purged from the water lines prior to shipping. When installing the unit, no water
will come out of the handpiece until the water lines are filled. Over a sink, remove the stack, rotate POWER
control knob to minimum, the display will read 1, (counter clockwise) turn the WATER control knob
counterclockwise 3 to 4 turns. Press on the footswitch until water flows, then reduce water to proper water level.
Reinstall the stack. The power level should be adjusted low to medium, so that a fine mist sprays from the tip.
Turn off the unit, remove the stack from the handpiece and disconnect the waterline when the unit will not be in
use for extended periods.
The power switch is on the left side of the unit.

INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Engler Sonus II Scaler.
The Sonus II uses state-of-the-art integrated computer technology together with time tested
technology. This combination produces a powerful and potent tool against periodontal disease.
The dental scaler utilizes an ultrasonic principle of operation. Our state of the art circuitry converts
line voltage to an operating frequency of approximately 18,000, 25,000, or 30 Hz. (depending on
the type of unit) This frequency is then amplified and delivered to the scaling tip. As a result, the tip
vibrates at this ultrasonic frequency with amplitude of 0.001 to 0.004 in. (25.4 um. to 102 um.).
In designing our unique Sonus tips, water flows through the tip as it vibrates. As the bubbles in the
lavage are bactericidal, the energy released collapses and destroys the bacterial cell walls. The
water flowing through the tip effectively cools the area and assists in removing any debris from the
operative site.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before installing or operating your new Sonus II, carefully read and follow all of the instructions.
IMPORTANT: This device must be connected to a clean, filtered, water supply, capable of delivering 30 to
60 PSI., 0 to 4.2 kg/cm2) of water input pressure. This unit comes with an In Line Water Filter
(part # A52030). When kept clean and free of foreign matter, it will assist in proper water flow to the unit. If
the water pressure in your office is above 60 psi, we recommend you install a water pressure regulator on
the supply line to your scaler.
CONNECTING WATER SUPPLY:
We strongly recommend that a manual shut off valve
be placed ahead of the Female Quick Disconnect, so
that the water can be completely shut-off, and line
pressure relieved, when the unit is not in use.
This device comes equipped with an 8 foot (244 cm)
water line, a Male Quick Disconnect fitting, a Water
Filter and a coupling body (which connects the water
44301 Male quick disconnect
line to the back of the unit).
The water line must be connected to the white fitting
located on the back of the unit before a connection is ** Please note, male quick disconnect is supplied as
a standard item with all Engler scalers.
made to the water source. To connect the water
line, slide the white (male) insert into the coupling
body (at the back of the unit) until the metal latch
locks it in place making a clicking sound. The water
line can now be connected to your water source.
We suggest that you use one of the four methods as
shown on the next two pages.
PLEASE REMEMBER -
It is recommended that you disconnect the device from the water supply when
it is not in operation. Engler Engineering Corporation will assume no liability
for damage due to not following recommendations in the Engler manuals.

CONNECTING WATER SUPPLY cont.
WHY DO WE INCLUDE A WATER FILTER WITH EVERY SCALER?
Depending on the water supply in your area, there may be minerals or other foreign particles present. These
minerals may cause a build up or blockage of the dental tip, internal parts, or hoses.
The water filter supplied with this device must be opened and inspected quarterly and we suggest that the
filter disc and O-ring be replaced at least once a year. See WATER FILTER CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS.
CONNECTING THE FOOT SWITCH:
To connect the footswitch to the unit, insert the male quick disconnect on the cable into the female quick
disconnect at the rear of the unit and tighten the securing nut by turning clockwise.
CONNECTING POWER SUPPLY:
First plug the power cord into the rear of the unit, then plug the other end of the into a grounded power
outlet. DO NOT remove or bypass the ground pin from the power cord. Doing so will void the warranty.
IMPORTANT: Your Sonus II has been equipped with a universal switching power supply and will
not require adjustments in this regard. See technical data for specifications.

SCALER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Initial procedures at the start of every day:
1. Make sure the power switch is ON, it is located on the left side of the unit.
2. Adjust the power control knob to the minimum power setting fully counter-clockwise. The digital
display will read 1.
3. With no transducer (stack) in the handpiece (no tip installed), set the water control to its maximum
setting by rotating it counterclockwise, (knob will rotate up to 3 and a half turns for maximum water)
hold the handpiece over a sink and depress the footswitch until water comes out in a stream. This
should take no more than 30 seconds. This step is done to insure proper operation of the delay
cavitation feature by removing air that may be trapped in the water lines.
Warning: DO NOT run the ultrasonic handpiece for more than 30 seconds
without water flow. Doing so will permanently damage the handpiece and void
the warranty.
NOTE : The O-rings on the stack should be lubricated once per week with a small amount of
petroleum jelly to keep the O-rings from sticking in the handpiece.
4. Place the transducer (stack) into the handpiece, push the white nosecone onto the handpiece and
then install a sterile tip into the nosecone. Rotate the nosecone in a clockwise direction to tighten the
tip. Tighten firmly by hand.
IMPORTANT: It is important that you DO NOT over-tighten the tips, as this may damage the
handpiece, stack, and / or tip and void your warranty.
5. Always keep the power control at the lowest setting and the water control to a level where you have a
fine mist at the tip. Higher power settings will result in hotter water.
NOTE: Tips sent from our facility are not sterilized.
6. IMPORTANT: If you find that tightening the nosecone by hand is not successful, you may lightly
tighten the nosecone with the tip wrench. Since the tip wrench is designed to remove the tips, it is
important that you DO NOT over-tighten the tips with the tip wrench, as this may damage the stack,
tip, and / or the handpiece and void your warranty.
IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that higher power levels tend to heat the out-flowing water.
Temperature control can be achieved by balancing the power with water flow volume. Thus, higher
power settings require high water flow rates and conversely lower power requires low water flow
rates.
7. The scaler is now ready for use.
IMPORTANT: Operating this device with hot water may cause damage to gums, lips and tongue. If
the handpiece begins to get warm, stop and check water temperature. If it is hot, make sure that the
power is at the lowest setting and the water is set at a high enough setting to provide a lukewarm
mist. Do not use this device if the water temperature is too hot.
Engler Engineering Corporation will not be liable for damage due to improper use of this device.

ULTRASONIC SCALING PROCEDURES
1. Before placing tip into patient’s mouth, activate the scaler handpiece over a sink by depressing the
footswitch. A fine mist, with the temperature between cool to lukewarm to the touch is
recommended. This should be accomplished with minimal power and proper water flow.
2. It is recommended that when a tip is placed into a patient’s mouth, the lips, cheek and tongue
be retracted to prevent contact.
3. Place the tip into the patient’s mouth and depress the footswitch to activate the scaler.
4. Bring the tip lightly up to the tooth and gently move it over the surface of the tooth with an erasing
motion.
5. A saliva ejector or HVE is recommended.
IMPORTANT: Do not leave the vibrating tip in one place as it can cause serious damage to the tooth
or surrounding tissues. Engler Engineering Corporation will not be liable for damage due to
improper use of this device.
Note: We have designed the this device with a feature called Delayed Cavitation. This function purges the
tip of water after releasing the footswitch to prevent bacteria from entering the tip.
IMPORTANT: Excessive pressure on the tip is not necessary to remove calculus or tartar. Enamel on the
teeth may be damaged or removed when using excessive pressure. The enamel may be damaged if the
scaling tip is left to rest in one spot for even a few seconds. Using the tip, as a pry to remove calculus or
tartar is strongly discouraged as it may damage the teeth and incidentally change the shape of the tip,
altering it's performance. The normal power setting for most procedures should be near mid-range. Since
every operator has a different technique, the power may be adjusted to satisfy specific requirements.
Ultrasonic scaling procedures are not intended for soft tissue.
CAUTION: Contact with Soft Tissue Will Cause Burns. Engler Engineering Corporation will not be
liable for damage due to improper use of this device.
