An emergency pressure feature shall be optional on Class A and B devices and a requirement on Class C, D, and E devices. Means shall be provided to select breathing oxygen at a positive pressure at any altitude. The means to obtain this pressure shall be easily performed and shall be detented. This feature is intended for smoke protection, face mask leakage testing, and for oxygenation with pressure at those altitudes where the device does not ordinarily provide oxygen at positive pressure.
The inlet supply pressure range shall be shown on the device on the nameplate or other readily visible location. For those devices with a supply hose as part of the assembly, the supply pressure shall be measured at the inlet of the supply hose coupler.SAE AS 8027 pdf free download.
