SPACE HEATER, CONVECTIVE (SHC)
THEORY OF OPERATION
The Space Heater, Convective (1) is installed outside the tent with its air supply (2) and return (3) ducts
routed through passthrough sleeves (4) located in the side of the tent (5). A fuel can (6) mounted on a
fuel can stand (7) feeds fuel to the space heater by means of a gravity feed adapter (8) and fuel hose (9).
The fuel hose (9) is connected to the SHC by means of a quick disconnect connector (10).
All SHC functions are controlled via the in-tent controller assembly (11) which hangs inside the tent. An
in-tent controller assembly cable (12) is connected between the in-tent controller assembly and the heater
in order to control all heater operations from inside the tent.
An SHC operational cycle begins by switching the ON-OFF switch (13) on the in-tent controller assembly
(11) to the ON position.
