Manufactured by Philips Respironics.
Philips Respironics has made available an upgrade kit to allow the PR System One 60 Series Non-Heated Tube Heated Humidifier to use the PR System One Heated Tube for 60 Series Machines improving the level of humidification delivered to the mask.
Please Note: This upgrade kit will work only with the PR 60 Series Non-Heated Tube Humidifier part number DS6H. It is not compatible with other PR System One Heated Humidifiers or humidifiers made by other manufacturers. See the Important Tips Tab for ways to identify a 60 Series machine.
This upgrade kit includes:
- Heated Tube for 60 Series Machines
- 60 Series Humidifier Conversion Lid
- 80 Watt Power Supply
- Instruction Kit
To power the heated hose, the conversion lid has an electrical pin connection that will be matched up the humidifier base during installation. The included 80 watt power supply is required to power the heated hose, machine and humidifier. The 80 watt power supply is approximately 1 1/2" longer than the 60 watt power supply and has "80 w" embossed on the top, flat surface.
Installation of the Upgraded Chamber Lid & Heated Tube on an existing PR System One Heated Humidifier:
- Open the humidifier lid and remove the chamber.
- With the lid raised, hold the base of the humidifier with one hand the center front of the lid with the other hand. Lift up and back on the lid to unsnap the lid from the base. There will be a snapping sound when removing the lid.

- Insert the chamber as usual.
- Attach the new 60 Series Heated Tube lining up the power pin connection at the top of the port.
