Used extensively throughout the leisure & commercial sectors, the Pro Sensor® Automatic Inflator provides additional improvement on the standard MK5 Automatic Inflator, affording the user one point of status indication, to confirm that the unit has been automatically or manually activated. The unit also provides the added benefit of detecting if the CO2 cylinder has been pierced, eradicating the possibility of accidentally fitting an empty gas cylinder.
As with the UML MK5 Inflator, the great benefit of this inflation system is that the there is also an automatic override which usually activates within 3 seconds of the system being submerged in water. The automatic cartridge contains a powerful spring which is compressed and retained in place using a paper element.
When the paper element becomes wet, it releases the spring which pushes a plunger forward enabling a cutter to pierce the CO2 gas cylinder. The CO2 gas from the cylinder instantly passes through the inflator head, inflating the lifejacket.
The product is approved in accordance with the ISO12402 Part 7 standard requirement for lifejackets.
