The Dräger PSS® 5000 SCBA is a high performance breathing apparatus for the professional firefighter. Combining advanced ergonomics with a wide range of configurable options the Dräger PSS® 5000 provides the user with the comfort and versatility to meet the demands of first responders.
Ergonomic Carrying System
The breathing apparatus Dräger PSS 5000 has been designed to be not only comfortable but also extremely stable during use in harsh firefighting environments. Incorporating a rigid harness connection to a fixed-height back plate, advanced harness materials and a pivoting waist belt, the Dräger PSS 5000 remains in position regardless of the task in hand.
The Dräger Standard (DS) harness
The Dräger Standard (DS) harness is a cost effective option for everyday use, offering a high level of comfort and durability. Easy to don and doff materials and simple pull forward and down adjustment mechanisms make the DS harness a versatile option for a wide variety of applications.
The Dräger Professional (DP) harness
The Dräger Professional (DP) utilizes materials to withstand the high wear and tear that firefighters face daily, whilst providing an enhanced level of comfort and function over the DS harness. Incorporating hardwearing stainless steel buckles and long-life Aramid blend webbing, the DP is ideally suited to extended wear and frequent use.
Integrated and Versatile Hose Routing
To minimize the risk of snagging and to guard against physical damage, both the gauge and air supply hoses are integrated within channels in the Dräger PSS 5000 back plate. The LDV, Gauge and Rescue hoses can now be routed over the left and/or right shoulders (2 hoses per side), allowing the breathing apparatus to be configured to any standard. Conventional waist mounted hoses can also be fitted making the Dräger PSS 5000 one of the most versatile SCBA's available.
Electronic signal and warning unit
For maximum protection the electronic signal and warning unit Dräger Bodyguard 7000 has an innovative compact design that integrates the power supply and pressure sensor modules within the back plate, creating a balanced weight distribution. 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, a facemask-mounted Head's Up Display (HUD).
Service friendly & easy to maintain
To keep downtime and costs to a minimum during service and maintenance, the breathing apparatus Dräger PSS® 5000 incorporates a number of unique design features including Dräger's harness/waist-pad "slide and lock" connection mechanisms, first stage reducer snap fit connection, "Push in and out" hose clips and closed, single piece harness and waist pads. The combination of these features and the materials used makes the breathing apparatus a simple and rapid set to maintain.
