  • Publication number: 20200262567
    Abstract: A passenger service unit assembly that includes a frame that defines at least an oxygen opening and a service opening, an oxygen mask housing positioned adjacent the oxygen opening, an oxygen mask housing cover positioned to cover the oxygen opening, and a service cover positioned to cover the service opening. An oxygen mask that is movable between a stowed position and a deployed position is positioned in the oxygen mask housing. The oxygen mask housing cover maintains the oxygen mask in the stowed position. The oxygen mask housing cover is movable between a closed position and an open position. When the oxygen mask housing cover is moved to the deployed position, the oxygen mask drops to the deployed position via gravity. The service cover is movable between a closed position and an open position and includes at least a first passenger service unit component associated therewith.

  • Publication number: 20200239145
    Abstract: An oxygen generator outlet manifold assembly that includes an outlet manifold and an end cover. The outlet manifold includes a main body portion with inner and outer surfaces and at least a first hose connector that includes an outlet defined therein extending from the main body portion. The main body portion defines a main body portion interior that includes a connection opening defined in the inner surface, a ring chamber, a flow space and a distribution chamber. An annular ring is positioned in the main body portion chamber interior and separates the ring chamber from the distribution chamber. The end cover includes a generator outlet portion extending therefrom that is received in the connection opening. The generator outlet portion includes an outlet valve having an open and a closed state and includes an interior chamber that cooperates with the ring chamber to define an outlet chamber.

  • Publication number: 20200164233
    Abstract: A vehicle oxygen indication system that includes at least one oxygen source, and a plurality of oxygen assemblies. Each oxygen assembly includes a hose, a switch, a mask, and a flow indicator. The hose includes a lumen through which oxygen can flow from the oxygen source to the mask. The switch is switchable between a normal state when oxygen is not flowing from the oxygen source to the mask and a flow state where oxygen flows to the mask. When the switch is in the flow state, the flow indicator is switched from a static state to an indication state.

  • Publication number: 20200030642
    Abstract: A hose that includes a main body portion that defines a lumen extending therethrough and includes an outer surface, at least a first axially extending protrusion extending outwardly from the main body portion, and at least a first axially extending slot defined in the outer surface of the main body portion. The hose defines a hose axis. A portion of the first axially extending protrusion is secured in a portion of the first axially extending slot.
