The ResMed DC-24 Converter allows you to operate S8 ResMed VPAP™ Auto 25 and VPAP™ ST Machines that run only on a 24V DC power source. This converter increases all 12 Volt batteries into 24 Volt DC power.
The DC-24 Converter For S8 ResMed VPAP Auto 25 and VPAP ST Machines consists of the converter box, a 14" cord extending to the cigarette lighter socket and a 48" cord extending to the machine end DC connection pin. The entire length of this product is 67 3/4" long. This measurement does not include the length of the cord end connections but does include the length of the converter box.
All machines can connect to DC power. Some machines are configured to operate on DC Power and have a DC power outlet. Other machines require AC power and will need an Inverter that turns DC power to AC power.
Having the proper equipment is the biggest key to successfully operating the machine from a battery. For example, if your machine does have a DC outlet and you want to run your machine from a marine battery, be sure to get the correct DC cable for the machine, as well as an adapter cable with alligator clips that fits over the cigarette lighter plug.
CPAP.com sells complete battery kits with everything you need for many machines including the correct cables for those machines and batteries. If you have questions about the specific power needs of your machine, review the 'Power' tab found on the machine's product page, or give us a call at 1-800-356-5221.
Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:
When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.
