radio communication function.
- Four full-face quick-donning masks and their stowage boxes (5 optional).
The Low Pressure supply valve is installed between the pressure
reducer/transmitter and the distribution manifold. A 28VDC signal
opens/closes the valve. The valve is opened or closed by a 28VDC
electrical signal pulse from the ESS BUS 417PP. This signal is controlled
from the overhead panel, by the OXYGENB/CREW SUPPLY pushbutton
switch located on the ICP panel 1211VM.
The valve has an integrated electronic circuit that changes the permanent
control voltage into a pulse that operates the valve. When there is no
pulse, the valve coil is not energized. The valve position agrees with the
last control signal, whatever the time between two opposite control
signals.
A switch sends the valve position to the Oxygen System Control Unit
(OSCU) for monitoring and display, through the AFDX and ADCN

(IOMs as back up).


The function of the LP distribution manifold is to decrease the risk of
leaks. It is made to optimize the reliability of the system by decreasing
the number of couplings in the LP circuit.
The LP distribution-manifold assembly includes:
- A test port that helps the maintenance for the pressure and leak test on
the ground. The maximum pressure that can be used at the test port is
10bars (145psig)
- A low-pressure switch which senses a too low pressure in the LP
distribution circuit (below 3.3 bars (47.8624 psi)). This switch sends an

An oxygen flow indicator is an integral part of the supply valve. When
Crew Oxygen Dispensing there is an oxygen flow, the indicator blinks.
Stowage boxes
Each of the stowage boxes includes:
- A connector for the LP oxygen supply
- An electrical plug for the radio connection
- A two-flap door which keeps the mask in its housing
- A PRESS TO TEST AND RESET button on the left flap of the door
- A pneumatic supply valve that operates when the door is open or
when the PRESS TO TEST AND RESET button is pushed
- A blinker flow meter that flashes when the LP oxygen flows
- A pneumatic switch which lets the mask microphone operate and
sends an electrical signal (box door closed and system reset) to the
OSCU for the system monitoring
- An OXY ON flag that makes it possible to see that the mask is
supplied.
A flexible hose is used to connect the box oxygen valve to the mask.
One end includes a quick disconnect connection with a self-sealing
coupling avoiding oxygen leakage in case of mask removal. A
microphone lead including a quick disconnect device is connected to
the relevant mask microphone cables.
The two doors on the stowage box will keep the mask in the box.
L1W06161 - L0KT0T0 - LM35D1000000001

When the left-hand door is opened with the removal of the mask, the
oxygen supply valve in the storage box will open. This lets oxygen
flow to the mask. Once the left-hand door has been opened and the
oxygen flows, a flag OXY ON will appear. This flag will not go out
of sight until the supply valve has been closed and reset.
The left-hand door of the stowage box has a reset/test control slide.
The slide is pressed in the direction of the arrow to reset the oxygen
supply valve in the closed position, when the left-hand door is closed.
It is also pressed in the direction of the arrow to do a test of the oxygen
supply without removing the mask from the storage box.

OXYGEN SYSTEM OPERATION, CONTROL & IND (3)


Cabin Oxygen System
If the OSCU detects a low pressure in the intermediate pressure system
via the low pressure switch, this will trigger a failure signal.
The ECAM caution OXY CABIN OXYGEN PRESS LO is displayed.
Reset Pushbutton
The reset button is used to reset the electrical circuit, to reset the shut
off valve of oxygen regulator and the electrical shutoff valves of main
distribution lines after system operation.
The reset button has an indication light that lights for 3 seconds if the
reset button is pushed.
The oxygen containers stay open.
The fault light comes on if the valves reset position is not reached.

Engine Burst Shut Off Valve Warning
If the electrical shutoff valves for engine burst protection in the main
distribution lines are not in the fully open position and the oxygen
system is not activated, the OSCU will detect this failure by continuous
BITE and trigger a failure signal. The ECAM caution OXY CABIN
OXYGEN SHUT OFF VALVE CLOSED is displayed

Tests Capabilities
Passenger Distribution Test
By initiated Passenger Distribution Test, it shall be possible to verify
the correct functioning of the electrical shutoff valves, the main
distribution line check valve and the differential pressure switch.
This is only possible on ground and with activation of the oxygen
system.
