This is the air inlet filter made specifically for the Transcend Travel CPAP Machine and Transcend 'Soft & Wearable' Travel CPAP Machine. It is a foam reusable filter that is easy to clean.The filter should be washed weekly with warm water and dish washing soap then allowed to air dry.
The Transcend uses an LED light to signal if the filter needs to be replaced. The filter should be replaced every six months.
Once the filter is replaced, the LED filter clock must be reset. Depress and hold the power button until the LED light stops flashing, which indicates it has been reset for six months.
Please note that the filter comes attached to the plastic base and does NOT detach.
The color of the air inlet filter changed from light blue to light gray in late 2012. The function of the air filter did not change in any way. Select the desired color when ordering the inlet filter.
The color of the foam strip which is attached to the Transcend Air Inlet Filter base may be either white or black. The function of the Transcend Air Inlet Filter is not affected by the color change.
Filter Change Note
In 2013 the filter was changed for the Transcend line of machines.
Previously the filter media and base were permanently attached. The filter base was removed from the Transcend unit by depressing a latch on the bottom of the base itself. With the updated design a push button replaces the latch. The media and base are separated and are removed by depressing the button on one end of the base to allow the base to be removed from the machine itself. The bottom of the machine itself was changed as well to accommodate the new style.
The newer version of the frame can be viewed here: Filter Frame for Transcend Travel Machines
Important Compatibility Note:
The old style filter will not fit onto a machine designed for the new filter. Likewise a new style filter will not fit on a machine designed for the old filter.
