Built to satisfy the most rigorous demands
The Dräger PSS 7000 SCBA and Dräger Sentinel monitoring systems have been developed over the years based on feedback from firefighters throughout North America. As a result, the Dräger PSS 7000 is not only state-of-the-art, but it has also been proven to satisfy the most rigorous demands of first responders. The following are key features that distinguish the Dräger PSS 7000 from other SCBAs in the marketplace.
Innovative harness system provides unmatched comfort and durability
Dräger SCBAs are designed with a lower center of gravity to increase stability and balance, allowing you to work more effectively with less fatigue. The PSS 7000 has an adjustable harness suspension system that provides the ultimate in comfort and extended wear. Durable webbing and advanced compression-molded comfort padding offer up to 6.5 x higher abrasion resistance than traditional padding. The material is easy to clean and disinfect, and is highly resistant to chemical and mechanical damage.
The harness has a high-grip, anti-slip inner surface that stays securely in place—without a chest strap or having to over-tighten the shoulder straps. Cooling channels in the shoulder straps and waist belt reduce the likelihood of compression burns. A stainless steel harness-friction buckle makes the SCBA fast and easy to don and doff.
Ergonomic 3-position backplate allows freedom of movement
The Dräger PSS 7000 was designed to move with you—allowing unrestricted movement as you walk, crawl or climb. The backplate automatically lengthens and pivots to mirror your movements. The unique self-adjusting and pivoting waist belt keeps the SCBA on your hips when you reach and prevents your coat from riding up.
To reduce back strain, the weight of the harness is designed to ride on your hips. The 3-position carbon fiber composite backplate adjusts to comfortably fit different torso lengths.
A slide-and-lock harness mechanism allows the harness and waist belt to be connected or removed from the backplate quickly—without tools. To minimize the risk of snagging or damage, supply hoses are integrated neatly into the backplate.
Rapid, secure cylinder change-outs save precious time
The PSS 7000 has a lock-and-load system that lets you securely change out cylinders quickly. A proven quarter-turn adapter allows you to quickly and easily attach the cylinder to the reducer—saving time compared to conventional threaded reducer hand wheel and cylinder connections. The quick connect features a safety interlock system which prevents disconnection at pressures above 70 psi (approx.) and enables you to reenter the action more quickly and allows for mutual cylinder aid or exchange—regardless of what SCBA is used.
A choice of integrated safety systems to monitor air supply
At Dräger, we understand that your department has specific requirements and budgets. Our modular Sentinel electronic monitoring systems provide you with options to satisfy the needs of any department.
Housed in impact-resistant, water-resistant casings, Dräger monitoring systems demonstrate excellent repeatability and reliability in laboratory and field testing.
Each Dräger SCBA can be outfitted with a monitoring system that features:
- A PASS device
- Visual and audible warnings and alarms
- A streamlined design that reduces snag points
- Intuitive push-button operation for ease of use
- Configurable settings to suit individual preferences
- Data logging for improved post-incident analysis
Dräger Sentinel 7000—Real-time monitoring of key indicators
Incorporating a centralized power supply and pressure sensor module within the backplate, the robust system combines maximum component protection with balanced weight distribution for reduced physical stress.
An electronic gauge provides real-time monitoring of essential information, including:
- Accurate, continuously updated digital display of pressure and time to EOSTI activation (time based on dynamic breathing rate)
- Battery status display
- 360° visual and audible alarms triggered when PASS is activated
- Automatic self-tests and system tests
- Enhanced data logging with personal ID
Dräger Sentinel 1500—Modular design helps increase personal safety
The Dräger Sentinel 1500 is a fully integrated, electronic signal and warning unit with a modular design that allows you to position the PASS device at your waist or shoulder, based on your preference.
With a trusted backlit pneumatic style transmitting gauge, the Sentinel 1500 increases personal safety because it:
- Sends a wakeup signal to the paired PASS device and HUD when the cylinder is opened, ensuring that the system is ready before you enter a hazardous zone
- Includes a configurable alarm that alerts you when absorbed temperatures reach a critical level
- Draws attention to a firefighter in distress by generating distinctive visual and audible alert signals
- Decreases snagging hazards by reducing the need for additional cables or wires
