Title (EN) SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS HAVING A PERSONAL ALERT SAFETY SYSTEM INTEGRATED THEREWITH
(FR) RESPIRATEUR AUTONOME A SYSTEME D'ALERTE ET DE SECURITE INDIVIDUEL INTEGRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a self-contained breathing apparatus ('SCBA') having a personal alert safety system ('PASS') fully integrated therewith. The PASS is structurally integrated with the SCBA such that it is protected from damage by both the air cylinder and the frame. The integrated PASS device is not only automatically activated when the SCBA is being used but can still be activated manually if the SCBA is not in service. Additionally, the integrated PASS device utilizes a unique electrical/mechanical connection assembly between its various parts which greatly increases its ruggedness and durability.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un respirateur autonome auquel est intégré un système d'alerte/sécurité individuel. L'intégration est telle que ledit système est protégé à la fois par la bouteille d'air et par le cadre. Le système d'alerte n'est pas seulement activé automatiquement lorsque le respirateur est en service, mais il peut également l'être manuellement, lorsqu'il ne l'est pas; il comporte par ailleurs un ensemble original de connexions électriques et mécaniques reliant ses diverses parties et qui améliore largement sa robustesse et sa durabilité.
