Basic Software Installation
All POSI3 USB software end users must have permission to modify the following areas of the PC:

  1. The registry section
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sperian\Pos i3 USB and all its subsections.
  2. The folder location C:\Program
    Files\Sperian\Posi3USB and all its subfolders.

It may be necessary to contact your IT department so they can provide you with the necessary access.

Note on Brand-Specific Software: If you are planning to service a specific brand of SCBA, make sure you have the OEM Posi3 USB software for that brand.

  1. To install your POSI3 USB software, if having a CD, insert the CD-ROM. If the software fails to launch automatically, use Windows Explorer to navigate to the CD-ROM drive and run BATestSetup.exe. If having a downloaded file, be sure to have the BATestSetup.exe and the License.exe applications in the same folder.
  2. It is recommended to exit any other Windows programs that may be running and verify the License information and End User License Agreement.

  3.  Connect the Tygon™ tube from the hose barb on the bottom of the head to the hose barb at the bottom front of the inside of the bellows.
  4. 4. Slide the head onto the standoffs. Make sure the Tygon™ tube is not caught or pinched between the head and the chassis.
  5. 5. Hand tighten the four knobs on top of the threaded standoffs. No tools are necessary. Do not over tighten!

Install the Microphone (optional) 

Plug the microphone into the port located on the Posi3 USB’s left front panel over the medium pressure inlet.

Connect the PC to the Posi3 USB
The software must be installed before connecting the USB cable and turning on the Posi3 USB.
Connect the unit using the supplied power and USB cables.

    Note: “MP” stands for Medium Pressure. For models with a Medium Pressure connection in the Standard Software, the medium pressure readings will be shown on appropriate tests. The Standard Software does not contain tolerances for the medium pressure tests, so there will be no indication whether the medium pressure portion of the tests passes or fails.
  8. Click “Next” to continue to the next component of the breathing apparatus. You will be prompted to select a second stage, facepiece, alarm(s), and gauge(s).
  9.  When selected, the components of the model will be shown in the right pane of the Choose Model screen.

Testing
Attaching the Facepiece

Position the facepiece squarely on the test head, and tighten the straps evenly. Make sure the nose cup is positioned over and across the test head nose.
Do Not connect the second stage regulator to the facepiece until the software instructs you to do so. The facepiece must be open to ambient air pressure when the facepiece leak test is started.

Attaching the High or Low Pressure Manifold 

  1. Turn off the cylinder valve on the SCBA to be tested and depressurize it by using the bypass.
  2. Disconnect the SCBA from the cylinder. If the cylinder will not be used as the pressure source for testing, it can be removed during testing.
    Honeywell POSI3 USB Flow Test Units-44
  3. Select the manifold that matches the supply pressure of the SCBA. The low pressure manifold has a black handwheel, and is used with 2216/3000 PSI SCBA. The high pressure manifold has stainless steel handwheels, and is used with 4500 PSI SCBA.
  4. Connect the handwheel on the single end of the manifold to the Posi3 USB through the high pressure inlet fitting on the lower right front panel of the Posi3 USB. Make sure it is tight.
    WARNINGThe correct manifold must be used to ensure correct results during the bypass flow test.
    Honeywell POSI3 USB Flow Test Units-45WARNINGIf a pressure supply other than a cylinder is used, make sure the supply regulator is set to the appropriate pressure.
  5. Connect the handwheel on the T-fitting to the air source. Make sure that any valve used for the pressure supply is located next to the T-fitting on the manifold.
    WARNINGMake sure the manifold does not kink! Kinking can cause the hose to rupture, which can lead to serious injury, or death.
  6. Connect the handwheel on the first stage of the SCBA to the T-fitting on the manifold.
    Honeywell POSI3 USB Flow Test Units-46Attaching the First Stage Manifold
    The first stage manifold is shown below and is connected to the medium pressure fitting located on the front panel.
    Honeywell POSI3 USB Flow Test Units-47An adapter is required to connect the first stage manifold to the breathing apparatus. First stage manifold adapters are specific to the SCBA and are only available from the SCBA manufacturer.
    Do not attempt to service SCBA without the proper training from the SCBA’s manufacturer.
    Always follow the breathing apparatus manufacturer’s instructions when connecting the first stage to the Posi3 USB.
    Note: Detailed connection instructions for a variety of models are available in the help files for the various brand-specific Posi3 USB software versions.
  7. You are now ready to start testing with the software.
    Use the menu item Tests / Complete SCBA Test to conduct a yearly flow test.

The Help file can be launched from the software at any time by using the F1 key.
