Power Source:      2 Ea. 1.5V Alkaline Dry Cells ('AA' Cells, NEDA 15A)     

Section II - Operating Procedures

TO TEST: Before connecting to blasting circuit;  charge by pressing switch 
to "CHARGE" position. When "READY" light illuminates press switch to 
"DETONATE" position.  "READY" light should go off immediately.

For the practical purposes of these instructions "READY WHEN FULLY LIT" 
is to indicate that the ready light be of singular and even luminesce 
quality before pressing "DETONATE."

When "READY" light fails to illuminate replace the two (2) Alkaline 'AA'
Cells under battery cover on front of machine.  Observe polarity when 
replacing cells and replace cover.

TO OPERATE:  Connect machine to the blasting circuit and repeat "CHARGE" 
and "DETONATE" sequence as in "TO TEST."

Section III - Handling & Care

To maintain the proper functionality of your Scorpion HB-12 Blasting unit 
please observe the following:
	a.  Avoid severe impact.  The HB-12 is impact resistant however 
                severe localized or blunt impact could crack and/or breach 
                the HB-12's casing.  NEVER USE THIS  UNIT IF ITS CASE IS 
                CRACKED OR BREACHED.  In this instance please see 
                Section V - Servicing.
	b.  Avoid leaving the HB-12 partially or fully submerged in water.  
                should your HB-12 become partially or fully submerged in 
                water towel dry the machine including switch and binding 
                posts.  Remove front battery compartment cover and replace 
                the two (2) Alkaline 'AA' cells to prevent possible battery 
                corrosion. Dry off inside battery compartment with a towel and 
                leave the machine in open air to dry. Should battery 
                corrosion occur refer to Section V - Servicing.
	c.  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.
	d.  After daily use clear debris and/or dust from in and around 
                switch bezel and store it in a safe and dry environment.
	e.  NEVER use your HB-12 as a lever or impact device.
	f.  NEVER use your HB-12 as an alternate energy source on equipment 
                for which it was not designed.
	g.  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 (570) 286-7744.  For annual 
                or biannual maintenance programs:  Testing and output traces 
                are available by the manufacturer.  See Section V - Servicing 
                for return information.
	h.  NEVER USE A DAMAGED OR QUESTIONABLE MACHINE.  For repair and 
                servicing see Section V - Servicing.

Section IV - Labeling

The HB-12's face plate includes operating instructions and the unit's
serial number.  Should this label become unlegible or is removed 
see Section V - Servicing for replacement.
