July 29, 2008

Pittsburgh, PA – The new Draeger PSS 7000 SCBA has received NFPA 1981 and 1982, 2007 approvals. The device is approved to meet and exceed NFPA’s new standard for water submersion, tumble test, heat and cold testing. It achieves the highest requirements in the market.

The Draeger PSS 7000 features a smart fully integrated electronic fire fighter monitoring system called Sentinel 7000, which is approved to the 1982, 2007 standard and includes a PASS device providing both audible and visual alarms to the fire fighter. It displays and records all vital information from the PASS device as well as from the SCBA providing real-time information regarding air supply and consumption.

Draegar’s new communication system fits into the Draeger FPS 7000 mask, which sets new industry standards for face fit and comfort. The mask comes in three distinctive sizes to perfectly fit the contour of the face and provides excellent sealing between the mask and face. It also has a fully integrated voice amplifier and radio interface system. The twin speakers provide exceptional voice clarity with a surround sound output. The Draeger FPS communication system has an extremely low profile as it was designed and built to fit into the actual face mask.

For the first time Draeger introduces the TST technology to the industry (Titanium Sound Technology). This new technology which has a resistance to high temperature environments is incorporated into the Draeger PASS alarm sounders providing a loud 95 dba plus warning output to alert other fire fighters in the area.
