Pressure and remaining airtime is shown on one easy-to-read digital display. The lightweight device fits in the palm of the hand, with large, easy-to-operate buttons, even when wearing gloves. When triggered, the Personal Alert Safety System (PASS) flashes lights both on the unit and on the carrying systems. The alarm sound emits from both the Sentinel and speakers on the carrying system. Color coded lights are featured to assist with orientation in dark smoke-filled atmospheres.
Dräger FPS-COM 7000 TeamTalk Independent Fire Ground Communications
TeamTalk is Dräger’s cutting-edge, only one of its kind, new development in Independent Fire Ground Communications. The Dräger FPS-COM 7000 provides standalone hands-free communication between wearers. The unit integrates into the FPS 7000 full-face mask without the use of tools. Voice-activated, the FPS-COM 7000 provides full-duplex communication on one of seven user-selected channels. Up to 10 users per channel can be connected without using a tactical radio, which is especially ideal for special operations like hazardous materials response teams. In a normal building with walls, the signal works ideally with others less than 90 feet (27.4 meters) from one another or almost 300 feet (91.4 meters) line of sight. Digital noise-reduction such as breathing and ambient noise is automatically suppressed and only transmits the wearer’s voice. The large button can be used for push-to-talk with any function including voice amp, tactical radio, or via Team Talk.
Dräger FPS-COM 5000 Tactical Fire Ground Communications
Designed to connect seamlessly to the FPS 7000 full-face mask, the Dräger FPS-COM 5000 ensures clear communication through either a voice amplifier or a tactical radio — even in the most extreme conditions. Cutting edge digital noise-reduction technology eliminates breathing sounds, ambient noise, and acoustic feedback for crystal-clear communication. The FPS-COM5000 can be added to any NFPA-certified SCBA ensemble from Dräger. Using two AAA batteries, the communication unit shuts off automatically if no breathing sounds occur for 10 minutes. This increases battery life, lowers maintenance costs, and ensures that your equipmentis ready for use when it’s needed. Once again, Dräger leads the fire service industry with cutting-edge technology which will change fire ground communication for the future.
