Maximum performance harness material
The Dräger PSS 7000 utilizes new state-of-the-art harness materials which have been specially designed to withstand the high level wear and tear fire fighters subject them to on an almost daily basis. Incorporating sturdy stainless steel buckles and long-life Aramid blend webbing, it is well suited to extended wear and frequent use.
Versatile integrated hose routing
To minimize the risk of snagging and to protect against physical damage, both gauge and air supply hoses are run through integrated channels in the Dräger PSS 7000 backplate. The LDV, gauge and rescue hoses can now be routed over the left and/or right shoulders (2 hoses per side), allowing the Dräger PSS 7000 to be configured to any standard. Conventional waist mounted hoses can also be fitted, making the Dräger PSS 7000 one of the most versatile SCBA’s available.
Electronic monitoring with the Dräger Bodyguard 7000
The Dräger PSS 7000 has been designed to be fully compatible with the globally established Dräger Bodyguard 7000 electronic signal and warning unit as well as the PSS Merlin telemetry system. The Dräger Bodyguard 7000 features an integrated design concept which integrates both power supply and pressure sensor modules within the backplate. This not only creates a balanced weight distribution, but also provides maximum component protection. Real-time monitoring of essential information such as time to whistle (based on current air consumption) and cylinder pressure is communicated via a lightweight, handheld electronic gauge and display and/or by a facemask-mounted head up display (HUD).
This information can be simultaneously transferred to the PSS Merlin Entry Control Board or the PSS Merlin Entry Control Software via the PSS Merlin Modem, further enhancing fire ground safety.
