INTRODUCTION:
Thank you for purchasing an Engler Son-Mate Scaler Polisher combination.
The design of the Engler Engineering Corporation, Son-Mate scaler circuitry combines
Integrated Phase Lock Loop technology along with our time tested delayed cavitation
circuitry. This combination produces a powerful and potent tool against periodontal disease.
A reinforced solid aluminum chassis surrounds the internal circuit board, providing a very
durable and reliable unit.
The dental scaler utilizes an ultrasonic principle of operation. The internal circuitry converts
ordinary line voltage to an operating frequency of approximately 18,000 Hz. This frequency
is then amplified and delivered to the scaling tip. As a result, the tip vibrates at this ultrasonic
frequency with an amplitude of 0.001 to 0.004 in. (25.4 um to 102 um).
In designing our unique Engler tips, water flows internally through the tip as it vibrates. As
the bubbles in the lavage are bacteriocidal, the energy released collapses and destroys the
bacterial cell walls. The water flowing internally through the tip, effectively cools the area and
assists in removing any debris from the operative site
IMPORTANT:
We recommend that ultrasonic scalers should not be used by or in close proximity to
anyone who has any electronic implant device (pacemaker, defibrillator, or has any
neurological problems).
PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY
Engler Engineering Corporation makes every effort to verify that all parts for the unit along
with any optional accessories shipped from our location are included in your order. It is
imperative that you inspect the package and if you find any pieces missing or damaged,
you must notify us immediately.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Before installing or operating your new Son-Mate, carefully read and follow all of the
instructions.
IMPORTANT: The Son-Mate must be connected to a clean, filtered, water supply, capable
of delivering 30 to 60 psi (2.0 to 4.2 kg/cm2) of water input pressure. This unit comes with an
In-Line water filter (P/N: 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 prior to the Female Quick
Disconnect, so that the water can be completely shut-off, and line pressure relieved, when
the unit is not in use.
The Son-Mate comes equipped with an 8 foot (244 cm)
water line with a male Poly-Quick disconnect fitting. The
water line may be connected to your water source in
many different ways. We offer four suggestions:
It is imperative that you disconnect the device from
the water supply when it is not in operation.
44301 Male quick disconnect
** Please note male quick disconnect is supplied as a
standard item with all Engler dental units
1. Female Quick Disconnect (P/N: 44300) - This is
the female mating connector to the male quick
disconnect supplied with the Son-Mate. Use
this to create a custom water installation.
44300 Female quick disconnect
2. Saddle Valve Assembly (P/N: A44303) - This kit
contains all parts to quickly and easily connect your
unit to an existing cold water supply line.

3. Faucet Adapter Assembly (P/N: A22303) This
screws on the faucet and
has a female mating connector.
A-22303 Faucet attachment
w/female connector & tubing
4. Portable Water Tank (P/N: PT-1) - This is a self
contained water source which is suited ideally
for portable operation. All you do is fill tank
with distilled water, pressurize the tank, and
begin scaling.
IMPORTANT: If you do not feel comfortable doing the
water installation yourself, we highly recommend the
services of a professional plumber. Engler Engineering
PT-1 Portable water tank (one gallon)
Corporation will not be held liable for any damage
including, but not limited to leakage caused by improper
installation of our products.
CONNECTING POWER SUPPLY:
Plug the power cord into a grounded power outlet. DO NOT remove or bypass the ground
pin from the power cord of this device.
IMPORTANT: Your Son-Mate has been pre-set to the voltage as requested in you order
and will not require adjustments in this regard. The voltage of operation is indicated on the
rear panel of your unit.

SCALER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:
Initial procedures at the start of every day!
1. Make sure the water is turned on and flowing to the Son-Mate.
2. Rotate the Selector Switch to the “SCALER” position, the red LED
indicator should light up, showing that you have power to the unit.
3. Adjust the power control knob to the minimum power setting fully counter-clockwise.
NOTE:
The transducer (stack) has already been installed into the handpiece, please do not remove it at this time.
4. With only the transducer (stack) in the handpiece (no tip installed), set the WATER
CONTROL to its maximum setting by rotating it counterclockwise, hold the handpiece
over a cuspidor or sink and depress the footswitch until water comes out in a stream.
This should take a few 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.
5. Insert a sterile tip into the nosecone, and rotate the assembly in a clockwise direction.
Then firmly tighten by hand.
IMPORTANT: It is important that you DO NOT over-tighten the tips, as this will damage the
Stack and / or the tip.
6. Set the power control and the water control to a level where you have a fine mist at the
tip.
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,
high power settings require high water flow rates and conversely low power requires low
water flow rates.
7. The scaler is now ready for use.
ULTRASONIC SCALING PROCEDURES:
1. Before placing tip into patient’s mouth activate the scaler over a sink by depressing the
footswitch. Check for the desired power and water spray.
2. It is recommended that when a tip is placed into a patient’s mouth, the lips, cheek and
tongue be retracted to prevent accidental contact.
3. Place the tip into the patient’s mouth and depress the footswitch in order to activate the
scaler.
4. Bring the tip lightly up to the tooth and gently move it over the surface of the tooth in a
circular motion.
6
IMPORTANT: 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. It can also be
damaged by keeping the tip in one location for a short period of time. Using the tip as a pry
to remove calculus or tartar may change the shape of the tip, which in-turn, changes the
frequency. The normal power setting for most procedures should be near mid-range. Since
every operator has a different technique and some patient’s are more sensitive than others,
the power may be adjusted to satisfy specific requirements. Ultrasonic Scaling Procedures
(Tip Application) is not intended for contact with Soft Tissue
CAUTION: Contact with Soft Tissue May Cause Burns.
As with any precision instrument, stacks should be handled carefully. To avoid damage to the
stack during insertion, please familiarize yourself with the stack installation on page 10.
The use of a face mask is recommended when operating the scaler, to avoid inhalation of
bacterially contaminated aerosol (water mist) by the operator.
FINAL PROCEDURES AT THE END OF EACH DAY:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Switch the unit to the off position.
Detach the tip and nose cone and sterilize.
Disconnect the unit from its water source or turn off the water supply.
Clean and disinfect all surfaces.
SCALER MAINTENANCE:
Instrument Tips:
IMPORTANT: The scaling tips should be thoroughly cleaned and free of blood, tissue, or any
other debris before sterilization.
The scaling tips nosecone and stack may be sterilized by Autoclave or Chemiclave, always
following the manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations. Do not autoclave over 270
degrees F or more than twenty (20) minutes..
It is recommended that you do not leave tips screwed into the handpiece for several days,
as water and sediment may make it difficult to remove, causing possible damage to the
stack.
7
Transducer / Stack:
The stack may be sterilized using the same methods as listed above. Do not sterilize the
entire Stack, Tip and Nosecone assembly as one piece. Separate the tip from the stack
before sterilization.
To re-install stack into handpiece, follow correct procedures on page 9.
Note: To achieve optimum performance of your equipment, we recommend that the stack,
tip and nosecone be replaced every 6 months to a year.
Chassis:
The chassis of your unit should be cleaned at the end of every operating day with a chemical
sterilization solution. This procedure could be done by spraying a fine mist of sterilization
solution on the unit, allowing it to remain on the chassis for the length of time recommended
by the manufacturer. The surface should be wiped with a clean damp cloth or as suggested
by the Chemiclave manufacturer.. Dry completely.
IMPORTANT: In using any chemical sterilization solution please follow the manufacturer’s
suggested procedures.
HANDPIECE, FOOTSWITCH AND POWER CABLES:
After each procedure, or at least once a day, it is suggested that the handpiece and its cable
be thoroughly cleaned and sterilized. The recommended procedure is as follows:
1. Remove Tip, and Nosecone - Sterilize these items as listed above.
2. Clean the outer surface of the handpiece and its cable with an antiseptic soap, rinse off
with water and sterilize with a chemical sterilization solution.
3. Place cleaned Tip and Nosecone into handpiece for next patient.
4. The footswitch and power cables should be cleaned periodically by spraying a fine mist
of sterilization or cleaning solution on the cables. It should remain on the cables for the
length of time recommended by the manufacturer. Wipe the surface with a damp cloth
and dry the cables completely.
FOR HUMAN DENTISTRY:
1. It is recommended that the Stack, Nose Cone and Tip be removed and properly sterilized
after each patient. This can be done as shown on page 9, however always replace stack
by properly lining up the white dot on the handpiece with the small hole on the stack.
2. If using an Autoclave, DO NOT exceed 270 degrees F. for more than 20 minutes as
higher temperatures may reduce the effectiveness of the stack and tip.

SADDLE VALVE ASSEMBLY
Installation Instructions:
1. To assemble the saddle valve to existing water source:
Place the saddle valve over and around your existing 3/8” copper tubing. Evenly tighten
the securing screws so that the saddle valve is securely fastened onto the copper tubing.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, THIS MAY CAUSE THE COPPER TUBING TO CRIMP AND
REDUCE FLOW.
2. To Mount the Female Quick Disconnect:
YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS.
Option “A”
Take the other end of the 1/4” water
tubing that comes from the saddle
valve and connect it to the female
quick disconnect. This is done by
placing the hose coupling nut over
the water tubing and placing the
hose into the back of the female
quick disconnect, then tightening the
coupling nut.
A-44303 Saddle valve assembly
Option “B”
w/female connector & tubing
If you wish, the female quick
disconnect may be mounted directly
through the sink top or vanity counter. If you choose this way, you must first drill a
1/2” diameter hole through the surface in the space desired. (see next page) Then
mount the female quick disconnect and tighten the mounting nut to securely hold
it in place. Then proceed to place the hose coupling nut over the 1/4” water
tubing. Place this tubing into the back of the female quick disconnect and tighten
the hose coupling nut securely.
3. To Pierce Existing Water Tube:
You are now ready to pierce the copper tube. Turn the handle of the saddlevalve in
a CLOCKWISE direction until it will go no further. The Saddle valve is now installed
and in the OFF position. Turn the handle of the Saddle valve counter-clockwise
until resistance is felt. Water is ready to flow into the dental unit. Check for leaks.
4. To Connect the Scaler to the Quick Disconnect:
Push the male quick disconnect from the scaler into the female quick disconnect
until they lock and installation is complete.
