SCORPION L-50 WATERPROOF
SOLID STATE ELECTRONIC BLASTING UNIT

Section I - Mechanical

Case Material:     Heavy Duty Urethane
Case Size:         3"W x 1.5"D x 4"H (7.6cm W x 3.81cm D x 10.13cm H)
Weight:            15.8 oz. (0.312 kg)
Type Circuitry:    Solid State Electronic
Firing Voltage:    220 VDC Min. - 225 VDC Max.
Firing Energy:     4.0 Joules (w/s)
Power Source:      1 Ea. 9V Alkaline Dry Cells (NEDA )     

Section II - Operating Procedures

TO TEST: Before connecting to blasting circuit; depress "CHARGE" switch
until "READY" light illuminates. While maintaining pressure on "Charge"
switch depress "DETONATE" switch.  "READY" light should go off immediately.

Caution: Do NOT relax "Charge" switch when depressing "Detonate" switch.
The HB-50 utilizes a dual switch firing mechanism to assure the blaster's
conviction to detonate.

When "READY" light fails to illuminate replace the 9V Alkaline
Cell under battery cap on right side of machine.  Observe cap position when 
replacing cap so as not to cross thread.

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 L-50 Blasting unit 
please observe the following:
	a.  Avoid severe impact.  The L-50 is impact resistant however 
                severe localized or blunt impact could crack and/or breach 
                the L-50's casing.  NEVER USE THIS  UNIT IF ITS CASE IS 
                CRACKED OR BREACHED.  In this instance please see 
                Section V - Servicing.
	b.  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.
	c.  After daily use clear debris and/or dust from in and around 
                switches and binding posts and store it in a safe and dry   
                environment.
	d.  NEVER use your L-50 as a lever or impact device.
	e.  NEVER use your L-50 as an alternate energy source on equipment 
                for which it was not designed.
	f.  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 (717) 286-7744.  For annual 
                or biannual maintenance programs:  Testing and output traces 
                are available by the manufacturer.  See Section V - Servicing 
                for return information.
	g.  NEVER USE A DAMAGED OR QUESTIONABLE MACHINE.  For repair and 
                servicing see Section V - Servicing.

Section IV - Labeling

The L-50's face plates includes operating instructions and the unit's
serial number.  Should these labels become unlegible or are removed 
see Section V - Servicing for replacement.
