Lesson 2/Learning Event 1
Mounting kits come in two types: a high profile mounting kit which is used on selected wheeled
vehicles; and a low profile mounting kit which is used on selected full-tracked vehicles. These
mounting kits are used to electrically connect and mount the M43 Detector Unit and the M42 Alarm
Unit to selected vehicles.
The M229 Refill Kit contains materials for 15 days of continuous operation. The kit consists of a
sleeve and two drawers. The expiration date of the kit is marked on the sleeve. If no date is
stamped on the box, the kit has unlimited shelf life and will not have to be discarded. Each drawer
contains 15 solution reservoirs, one sensitivity check bottle, and 30 air filter packages. Each air
filter package consists of an air filter, a plastic wrapper in which the air filter is enclosed, and a
watertight bag in which the plastic wrapper containing the air filter is sealed.
The BA3517/U battery supplies primary power to the M43 Detector Unit when the alarm system is
hand-carried or backpacked.
The MIO Power Supply requires input power of 115 or 220 volts at 50, 60, or 400 hertz found at
M34 CB Agent Sampling Kit
Samples of unknown chemical agents may be collected using the M34 CB Agent Sampling Kit.
Samples of biological agents also may be collected using the kit. The M34 CB Agent Sampling Kit
consists of two soil sampling kits, one vials container, and two pairs of gloves. The M34 CB Agent
Sampling Kit is shown in figure 11 on page 33.
Vial Container. The vials container is a partitioned cardboard box with a cover.
container holds four vials of sterile liquid and four empty vials.
Each sterile liquid vial contains 10 milliliters of liquid (holding solution). Each bottle is sealed with
a blue plastic screwcap and pressure-sensitive adhesive tape around the neck and cap of the bottle.
The holding solution is used with an applicator to collect biological agent samples from solid
Each empty vial is sealed with a red plastic screwcap and pressure-sensitive adhesive tape around
the neck and cap of the bottle. The empty vials are used to collect water samples suspected of
Rubber Gloves. The rubber gloves are made of black neoprene. The palms and fingers of the
gloves are rough-textured to provide a sure grip when the gloves are worn. The gloves are supplied
for use when screening suspected areas, sampling, and processing soil samples.
