Posichek3

NFPA-Compliant SCBA Testing Machine

The New Posi3 USB SCBA flow tester and the prior Posichek3 flow tester are approved SCBA flow test devices for functionally testing of SCBA to maintain NFPA or NIOSH approval using generic NIOSH and branded NFPA software to complete the flow tests. Honeywell Analytics manufactures the current Posi3 USB model.s

NIOSH & NFPA mandates all SCBA to be flow tested annually to maintain their approvals.

Airworks is a Master Distributor for the New Posi3 USB tester. We sell both the Posi 3 USB units and the branded NFPA software for MSA flow tests, Avon/ISI flow tests, Interspiro flow tests, Draeger flow tests, Survivair flow tests and for North flow tests. Software for Scott Safety SCBA must be purchased from Scott. However, we sell Posi3 USB units to both Scott distributors and end users.

The Posi3 evaluates the operational fitness of your SCBA through dynamic testing and functional checks against performance criteria set down by NIOSH and the NFPA. American AirworksTM offers buyers advise, selection assistance, fast shipping and great pricing on new Posi3 units... call 800-523-7222, or email us for a quote.

Easy and Automatic SCBA Flow Testing

Just attach the fully-assembled SCBA to be tested to the Posi3 test-headand choose the tests you wish to conduct. The Posi3 USB "Quick Test" fully evaluates the operational readiness of an SCBA in less than 2 minutes and consumes less than 1% of the SCBA's air supply. Full tests take longer and provides the testing results to be printed immediately or saved in a user-specified database for retrieval in the future. The Posi3 USB & PosiChek3 makes record-keeping easy! Software database allows storing of cylinder hydro-static test dates, end of service dates and in service dates.

Accurately Verify SCBA Operational Performance

Posi3 & PosiChek3 completely evaluates SCBA readiness for use. The following tests are provided using your unit:
  • Quantitative testing of SCBA components without disassembly
  • SCBA dynamic breathing produces realistic flow testing results
  • Mask leak-check
  • First breath on regulator activation pressure
  • Exhalation check-valve opening pressure
  • Static mask pressure
  • Bypass flow rate
  • Pressure gauge accuracy
  • Low pressure alarm activation PSI accuracy
  • High pressure leaks
  • Visual inspection
  • Breathing resistance at standard (40 LPM) work-rate
  • Breathing resistance at maximum (100 LPM) work-rate
  • Manufacturer specific test passing criteria
  • Complies with NFPA 1952 SCAM Standard

MSA Sound Detection System (SDS) Model

MSA OEM software requires sound detection to functionally test their SCBA properly. SDS is not required by other SCBA brands. Posi3 USB part numbers for SDS testing compatibilty are listed below.

PC Requirements
The new Posi 3 USB models use your own IBM-compatible PC to run the tests and store the results. Test results can be printed at the time of the test or retrieved from the user-specified database at any time in the future. The minimum PC requirements for the 32-bit PosiChek3 Software are as follows:

Minimum PC System Requirements for Posi 3 USB model 

  • Windows XP or higher, 32 or 64 bit.
  • Pentium 4 processor 2.0 GHz or higher
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 50 Mb of available space on hard drive
  • USB 2.0 port and CD-ROM Drive

    Minimum PC System Requirements for PosiChek3 older model 
  • Windows 98, ME, NT (SP 5.0 or higher), 2000, XP (32 bit version)
  • Internet Explorer version 4.01 (SP2 or higher)
  • A minimum of 100 Mb of available space on the PC's hard drive.

  • CD-ROM Drive

Notice - DEADLINE 1/1/2017 for Upgrading PosiChek3 units

1) Prior PosiCheck3 models will become obsolete on 1/1/2017 if not UPDATED to the new USB printer connections. Parallel printer port models will no long be supported by the factory. If not updated before this date, a new Posi3 USB complete unit must be purchased to replace the then obsolete PosiChek3 parallel port model.

Although parallel port to USB converters are available, the routing through USB hardware is incompatible with the PosiChek3 models.

2) Honeywell/Sperian Fire/Survivair (US), MSA (US), Draeger (US), Scott, Avon/ISI, and Interspiro and NIOSH software versions are currently available for use with the new Posi 3 USB flow testers. New USB software is NOT compatible with older PosiChek3 flow testers, without them first being upgraded to USB compatibility.

Call Ted, 800-523-7222, for compatibility questions.

We also sell refurbished PosiChek3 units,
when available, with new recalibration and full factory one year extended warranty. Email us to check our current inventory of refurbished units.
