b. Operate in Emergency (EMER) Mode.
Do not exceed 5 mph (8 km/h) when Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) is
operating in EMER mode. Operating vehicle in EMER mode is limited to ten
minutes. Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
Continued operation in EMER mode will result in eventual reduction in tire
life. Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
CTIS OVRSPD indicator will flash when in EMER mode, regardless of speed.
CTIS is operated in EMER mode when a lower tire pressure 16 psi (110
kPa) is needed to free vehicle from a stuck condition or to travel a short
distance over terrain that is known to require tire pressure less than 25 psi
(172 kPa). Time at this pressure is limited to ten minutes after which time
inflation to SAND will begin. If Operator still requires EMER mode, then
EMER mode button must be pressed again.
(1) Press EMER mode button (1). EMER mode light (2) will illuminate while CTIS is
operating in EMER mode.
(2) If operating CTIS in EMER mode is no longer required, press EMER mode button (1)
again. EMER mode light (2) will go out.
