Dräger PSS® 5000 NFPA-Certified SCBA

​​To be effective at fighting fires, you need breathing protection you can trust in the harshest environments. The Dräger PSS® 5000 is an ergonomically advanced SCBA that offers increased comfort, safety and performance. With a wide range of configurable features—such as bi-lateral hose routing and quick cylinder connection—the PSS® 5000 meets your needs wherever breathing protection is required.

Proven technology combines comfort with performance

The Dräger PSS 5000 SCBA is designed to withstand the high wear and tear that firefighters face daily—while providing an enhanced level of comfort and functionality. The harness is made of a tough chloroprene rubber material that performs for the long term. A heavy-duty stainless steel buckle and long-life Aramid blend webbing make this harness ideally suited for extended wear and frequent use.

For outstanding comfort, the flexible harness connects to a lightweight, stable backplate, while a pivoting waist belt helps reduce pressure on the wearer.

The PSS 5000 SCBA offers:

  • Outstanding resistance to heat, impact, and chemicals
  • Easy maintenance and service
  • Integrated, versatile hose routing
  • Wide variety of system configurations and accessories
  • Choice of electronic monitoring options: Dräger Sentinel 7000 or 1500

Integrated systems reduce risk and increase versatility

To minimize the risk of damage or snagging, the Dräger Sentinel 7000 or 1500 electronic system and air supply hoses are integrated into the backplate. To further streamline the harness, the lung demand valve (LDV), Dräger Sentinel system, and rescue hoses can be routed over the shoulders (two hoses per side). Conventional waist-mounted hoses can also be fitted to the carrying system, making the Dräger PSS 5000 one of the most versatile SCBA systems available.

Easy maintenance to lower cost of ownership

The following features keep Dräger PSS 5000 downtime and maintenance costs to a minimum:

  • Innovative slide-and-lock mechanism for fast and easy harness assembly and disassembly
  • Harness detaches from the backplate without the use of tools
  • First stage reducer snap-fit connection allows pneumatics to be fitted or removed quickly and easily
  • Hose clips push in and out to allow swift removal of hoses from the harness pads for cleaning
  • Chemical-resistant harness and waist belt design prevent excessive water absorption and reduce cleaning and drying time
  • Standard batteries, no manufacturer-required overhaul, and few replacement parts contribute to a lower total cost of ownership over the life of the SCBA

Integrated safety systems monitor air supply time

Dräger understands that your department has specific requirements and budgets. That’s why we offer modular Sentinel electronic monitoring systems that provide options to satisfy the needs of any department. Housed in impact- and water-resistant casings, these monitoring systems demonstrate excellent reliability in both laboratory testing and field use.

Each Dräger SCBA can be outfitted with a monitoring system that features:

  • A PASS device
  • Visual and audible warnings and alarms
  • 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 to enhance firefighter 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
