TO TEST: Before connecting to blasting circuit; depress "CHARGE" switch
until "READY" light illuminates. While maintaining pressure on "Charge"
switch depress "DETONATE" switch. "READY" light should go off immediately.
Caution: Do NOT relax "Charge" switch when depressing "Detonate" switch.
The L450-4J utilizes a dual switch firing mechanism to assure the blaster's
conviction to detonate.
When "READY" light fails to illuminate replace the 9V Alkaline
Cell under battery cap on right side of machine. Observe cap position when
replacing cap so as not to cross thread.
TO OPERATE: Connect machine to the blasting circuit and repeat "CHARGE"
and "DETONATE" sequence as in "TO TEST."
To maintain the proper functionality of your Scorpion L450-4J Blasting unit
please observe the following:
a. Avoid severe impact. The L450-4J is impact resistant however
severe localized or blunt impact could crack and/or breach
the L450-4J's casing. NEVER USE THIS UNIT IF ITS CASE IS
CRACKED OR BREACHED.
b. Avoid wrenching, impacting, or over-tightening binding posts.
Should this happen to the binding posts the protective
plastic shielding may become damaged or removed. SHOCK
HAZARD: If the protective plastic shielding is removed from
one or both of the binding posts potentially lethal voltage
exists to a grounded blaster should contact be made with the
exposed binding post at discharge. See Section V
- Servicing for maintenance and repair information.
c. After daily use clear debris and/or dust from in and around
switches and binding posts and store it in a safe and dry
d. NEVER use your L450-4J as a lever or impact device.
e. NEVER use your L450-4J as an alternate energy source on equipment
for which it was not designed.
f. Output oscillograms are recorded on every machine by the
manufacturer. If you need a copy of these test traces
contact E.I.T. Corporation at (717) 286-7744. For annual
or biannual maintenance programs: Testing and output traces
are available by the manufacturer.
g. NEVER USE A DAMAGED OR QUESTIONABLE MACHINE.
