Draeger Breathing Protection
For over 118 years, Draeger Safety has provided respiratory protection and gas detection
products for firefighters and first responders. Our complete product line meets the needs of
today’s fire services.
Draeger Safety’s leading edge technology provides equipment to make a firefighter’s physical
job less stressful. Looking at all critical aspects of fire fighting, Draeger’s self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) takes advantage in five major areas: comfort, design, cost of
ownership, safety and Sentinel technology. With more breathing apparatus systems in
service around the world than any other manufacture – you can be confident with Draeger.
Draeger BG 1904
A rich history in mine rescue.
PSS 7000 Designed to Exceed your Requirements
The PSS 7000 SCBA was designed to provide firefighters with exceptional safety,
comfort and durability. Dräger continues its ongoing commitment to provide firefighters
with the latest state-of-the-art breathing apparatus. The PSS 7000 is a world class
breathing apparatus instilling confidence to the firefighter during operational use.
The new harness suspension system is a key feature of the Dräger PSS 7000. The
advanced compression molded comfort padding combined with high temperature performance provides excellent wear characteristics. Our new designed harness suspension
system provides the ultimate in wearer comfort. The outer surface of the harness is made
from a vulcanized chloroprene rubber providing excellent stability and the harness remains
in position and secure to the firefighter’s body. Advanced designed harness friction
buckles allow for quick and easy donning and doffing of the PSS 7000 SCBA.
The PSS 7000 carbon fiber composite back plate is adjustable to fit to the torso length
of any firefighter. The unique 3-position height adjustment feature allows the wearer to
adjust the height of the back plate quickly.
The PSS 7000 back plate moves with the user. The unique self adjusting pivoting waist
belt design allows the back plate to automatically lengthen and pivot with the user’s
movements for true comfort and unrestricted movement. The weight of the PSS 7000
SCBA rides on the hips, thus reducing back strain and increasing stability and balance
providing a lower center of gravity. This design allows the wearer to work more effectively
with less fatigue.
For rapid cylinder change, we have developed the Draeger Quick Dock system (DQD).
This allows for fast secure cylinder change-out in just a few seconds saving valuable time.
This option allows for mutual aid cylinder exchange when necessary.

Integrated Warning System
Sentinel 7000 Device
With over 10 years experience in electronic PASS technology, Draeger has been able to
develop the Sentinel 7000, a fully integrated “Smart Electronic Monitoring Device” housed
in a robust impact resistant waterproof housing. The Sentinel 7000 is both a cylinder
pressure gauge and an integrated PASS warning device with visual and attention demanding
(>95 dBA) audible warning system. The PASS alarm uses a solid state surface mounted
accelerometer motion sensor that measures movement on two axes, providing excellent
repeatability and reliability. Three high temperature resistant sounders, one on the front and
two on the rear of the SCBA, plus high intensity buddy lights provide audible and visual
warning to the firefighter as well as other team members on the fire ground. The Sentinel
7000 can be easily programmed with the firefighters personal information using Draeger’s
Smart Card Technology (SCT). “Real time” information about the SCBA is provided to the
firefighter every 30 seconds. Information such as cylinder pressure and time to low air
warning etc. can be down loaded at a later time.
Dräger FPS 7000 Face Masks
Dräger’s FPS 7000 series face mask sets new standards in personal safety, protection
and comfort. The FPS 7000 face mask is the only mask designed specifically to meet
the new NFPA 1981-2007 standards. Available in multiple sizes, the FPS 7000 face
mask also has the largest unobstructed field of vision of any mask. Accessories like
the FPS-COM voice amplification system is fully integrated into the face mask
providing clear communications to other firefighters.
Dräger FPS 7000
Mask Body and Fit
The FPS mask body is made of a durable EPDM rubber material providing an excellent
facial seal with outstanding comfort. The unique triple sealing edges on the FPS 7000 face
mask (industry first) follows the contour of the firefighters face providing an excellent seal.
Three size face masks and inner masks now guarantee a perfect fit to any firefighter.
Ergonomically designed, the quick donning head harness forms to the shape of the head to
provide excellent comfort and support of the mask to the face.
Dräger FPS 7000
P-connector with Dräger
FPS-COM System
Field of vision
The FPS 7000 face mask was designed to provide the firefighter with an exceptional
unobstructed wide field of vision. The tough distortion free polycarbonate visor has an
anti-scratch coating for protection. Incoming air enters the face mask via a unique one-way
valve, distributing the air evenly over the inside of the visor, preventing fogging and cross
contamination to the lung demand valve.
The FPS mask is also the first face mask to be designed with a fully integrated communication system. The FPS-COM voice amplifier system forms to the contours of the face mask.
The combination of the FPS 7000 face mask with the FPS-COM voice amplifier system
ensures a perfectly balanced system. The unique twin speakers (on the left and right of the
mask) provide the ultimate in speech clarity with a surround sound output. Depending on
your requirements the FPS-COM system can be easily integrated into your existing radio
system. Fully submersible, the FPS-COM system can be effectively cleaned without being
removed from the face mask.
HUD System
No matter what the environment conditions are the new Draeger HUD system will always
provide valuable cylinder information directly to the firefighter. The HUD is positioned inside
the mask for maximum protection and performance. The HUD provides cylinder content
information, 50% cylinder content warning, and SCBA systems alert warning as well as providing buddy light information. Waterproof, robust and reliable and using the latest wireless
technology the HUD can be easily installed in seconds.

With the new Dräger fire-fighter-location device fire-fighters can locate their trapped, missing or disoriented colleagues or find their own way
back to them in a situation of disorientation in deteriorating conditions.
The Dräger FRT 1000 (fire-fighter rescue transceiver) is a low-frequency transmitter-receiver that is not
deflected by walls or other obstacles. The device is worn on the firefighter’s SCBA belt and is activated by
pulling the yellow on/of-key on the back-side (standby-mode).
As soon as a colleague of the crew does not move for a short amount of time, his device will send out an
audible alarm signal and will switch automatically from “standby-mode” into “transmit-mode” (auto transmit).
This feature is made possible by an integrated motion sensor. The other crew members will take their Dräger
FRT 1000 out of the pouch and switch manually from “standby-mode” into “fire-fighter-search-mode”. The
digital display shows distance to the missing colleague in meters or feet. The number decreases if they move
closer toward the victim. In case of many missing firefighters, the Dräger FRT 1000 isolates the strongest
signal and/or closest person within a 10 meter or 32 feet range. This way, you can find missing colleagues
one after the other. This application of “buddy rescue” is the main purpose of the Dräger FRT 1000. In
addition, every firefighter who has lost orientation can act preventively and find his way back to the crew as
long as he still has enough air supply left. This application - known as “self rescue” - requires the disoriented
colleague to switch into “fire-fighter-search-mode” and accordingly to ask his colleague by radio to switch
over to “transmit-mode” (manual transmit).
The Dräger ETR 1000 (Egress Transmitter) is an instrument which can be used in conjunction with the
Dräger FRT1000. It allows for self rescue of disoriented firefighters and safe return to a fixed exit. The
Dräger ETR 1000 is designed to give firefighters a means of egress in deteriorating conditions where
options and visibility may be limited. They can be strategically placed at points of safety such as an exit or
the top of a stairwell by an advancing crew or by a rescue team. After rescue of the person or to support the
retreat of the firefighters, the Dräger FRT 1000 will be switched into “egress-transmitter-search-mode”. It will
show the distance to the Dräger ETR 1000 in meters or feet. The crew member will find their way back
out of the hazard zone, e.g. in dense fog, without having to release a mayday. In addition, it is possible to
place several Dräger ETR 1000 in series (distance 20m/65ft) - in accordance to the planned retreat line to increase signal range. If a series of Dräger ETR 1000’s are followed, it is necessary to put every device
in “standby mode” at arrival. Thereby the signal is cut off temporarily and the signal of the next Dräger ETR
1000 can be picked up.
