• Operating Manual
• Service Manual
• Spare Parts List
For proper servicing, the Operating Manual and
the Spare Parts List are indispensable
complements to this Service Manual.
Data on pressures in the Compressor Compact
are given in Pa (bar):
1 kPa = 10 mbar
1 kPa = 0.01 bar
1 kPa ≈ 10 cm H
1 kPa ≈ 0.01 at
1 kPa ≈ 0.01 kgf/cm
1 kPa ≈ 0.01 kp/cm
1 kPa ≈ 0.145 psi
In addition to the Important information given
here, always pay attention to applicable national
If not stated otherwise in this manual:
• The 100 V/50 Hz, 100 V/60 Hz and 115 V/60 Hz
versions are refered to as the 115 V version.
• The 230 V/50 Hz and 240 V/60 Hz versions are
refered to as the 230 V version.
The Compressor Compact operates from mains
power supply. With power connected to the unit,
there are energized electrical components as well
as moving mechanical parts inside the equipment.
All personnel must exercise extreme caution when
in the vicinity of this equipment if fault tracing or
adjustments are performed with mains power
supply connected and with the compressor cover
or front panel opened or removed.
The Compressor Compact generates compressed
air at a pressure of 400 kPa (4.0 bar). Do not
attempt to connect or disconnect the compressed
air line or service the compressor section while
compressed air is being supplied. Do not direct
the compressed air line toward the eyes or directly
onto unprotected skin surfaces.
