Optional Quick-Connect Cylinder System

For rapid exchange in the field and in the workshop. Height-adjustable carrying system. Draeger designed the PSS 7000 for maximum comfort and stability during use in harsh fire fighting environments. Incorporating a rigid harness connection to a 3-point-height adjustment backplate, advanced harness materials and a pivoting waist belt, the PSS 7000 remains firmly in position regardless of the task in hand. Maximum performance harness material. The PSS 7000 utilizes new state-of-the-art harness materials which Draeger specially designed to withstand the high level wear and tear fire fighters subject them to on an almost daily basis. Incorporating sturdy stainless steel buckles and long-life Aramid blend webbing, it is well suited to extended wear and frequent use. Service friendly, low maintenance. To keep both downtime and costs to a minimum during service and maintenance, the PSS 7000 incorporates a number of unique design features:

  • Dräger’s innovative “slide and lock” harness mechanism facilitates fast and simple harness and waist pad connection/removal from the backplate without the need for tools
  • The first stage reducer snap fit connection allows users to fit the pneumatics or remove them quickly and easily from the SCBA
  • “Push in and out” hose clips allow rapid removal of hoses from the harness pads for cleaning without the need to remove the clip itself
  • Closed, single piece harness and waist pad design to prevent excessive water absorption, reducing cleaning and drying time

Versatile integrated hose routing

To minimize the risk of snagging and to protect against physical damage, both gauge and air supply hoses run through integrated channels in the PSS 7000 backplate. The hoses are routed with up to two per side within the channels. This allows users to configure the PSS 7000 to their preference. Users can also fit conventional waist mounted hoses. This makes the PSS 7000 one of the most versatile SCBA’s available.

Wide variety of system configurations and accessories

Dräger has revolutionized the use of breathing systems by creating a range of optional components that users can select in combination to meet the fire fighter’s specific needs regardless of the task. In addition to the standard features of the PSS 7000 NFPA-Certified SCBA, it is also possible to add:

  • Dräger Bodyguard 7000 electronic monitoring system
  • Dräger Bodyguard 1500 PASS device with Tx gauge
  • Twin cylinder configuration
  • Quick-Connect (QC) cylinder connection
  • Chargair quick filling
  • Secondary supply connections for rescue, decontamination and/or airline use
  • Dräger PSS Merlin Modem for telemetry applications
  • Dräger PSS Rescue Hood
  • Draeger PSS Safety Belt
  • And many more…


The Dräger Quick-Connect is a revolutionary, fast-action cylinder exchange system which features a dual mechanical and pressure seal safety mechanism designed to prevent accidental cylinder disconnect from the SCBA.

  • The pressure seal locks the cylinder to the SCBA while the system is pressurized
  • The mechanical seal requires a dual action, twisting push motion to remove the cylinder from the reducer. With Quick-Connect, users can securely attach a cylinder to the reducer with a simple push down action. This can reduce exchange times from minutes to seconds, which can make all the difference in an emergency situation. It eliminates the danger of cross threading or thread stripping, and greatly facilitates workshop maintenance.


Electronic monitoring with the Dräger Bodyguard 7000

  • The PSS 7000 NFPA-Certified SCBA is fully compatible with the globally established Dräger Bodyguard 7000 electronic signal and warning unit as well as the PSS Merlin Telemetry System. The Dräger Bodyguard 7000 features an integrated design concept which integrates both power supply and pressure sensor modules within the backplate. This not only creates a balanced weight distribution, but also provides maximum component protection. 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 by a facemask-mounted Head-up Display (HUD).

    Simultaneously, users can transfer this information via the PSS Merlin Modem to an Entry Control Board or Xplore tablet / laptop PC running Dräger Merlin Software. This further enhances firefighter and fire ground safety.
