Dräger PSS® Merlin® Telemetry Monitoring System

OF BREATHING APPARATUS WEARERS
The Dräger PSS Merlin System offers the
choice of using two versatile versions.
Firstly, you can use the PSS Merlin Entry
Control Board, the Dräger Bodyguard 7000
or Bodyguard II electronic monitoring unit
and the ATEX-approved PSS Merlin
Modem.
Secondly, the system can be used with the
Dräger PSS Merlin Software as opposed to
the Entry Control Board. The Software,
when used with the PSS Merlin PC Modem,
offers additional benefits.
By using the PSS Merlin Modem, the latest
information will be sent from the Bodyguard
7000 or Bodyguard II to the PSS Merlin Software or Entry Control Board, meaning that
the incident commander is given real time
information of the breathing apparatus
wearer, enabling a prompt response in case
of emergency situation.
LIFE CRITICAL INFORMATION
IN REAL TIME
There is a two way communication between
the wearer and the incident commander.
Transmitted from the breathing apparatus
wearer is the following data:
– Manual distress signal
– Automatic distress signal
– Cylinder pressure
– Time to whistle
– Elapsed time
– Withdrawal and evacuation signal
– Acknowledgment of global or individual
evacuation signal
Dräger PSS® Merlin® Software
and PC Modem
Via the Software or Entry Control Board, the
incident commander is able to
– send individual or team evacuation
– acknowledge breathing apparatus
wearer’s distress signals, automatic
distress signals and withdrawal signals
AUTOMATIC ACTIVATION AND
LOGGING IN
For enhanced usability: When opening
the cylinder valve, the system switches
on both the Bodyguard 7000 and the
PSS Merlin Modem. The PSS Merlin
Entry Control Board is activated by the
insertion of a tally key. The identity of the
PSS Merlin Modem is read and a unique
connection is established between radio
and board. The system continuously
monitors the status of the connection.
When used with the Dräger PSS Merlin
Software and the PSS Merlin PC Modem,

TELEMETRY – FOR PRECISE MONITORING
D-52717-2012
The Dräger PSS Merlin Telemetry System offers a precise overview
of the status of respiratory equipment wearers. The vital status information is communicated directly between the entry control
point and the wearer. Technology, which supports the incident,
significantly increases safety and protects the lives of your breathing apparatus wearers.

it is even possible to log on the breathing
apparatus automatically – without the need
for insertion of a tally key.
It is however still possible to establish the
connection by a tally, if required. Personalization of the breathing apparatus can also
be undertaken, enabling for easy documentation and transparency for tracking its
usage.
SECURELY CONTROLLING THE
INCIDENT - INTUITIVE MERLIN SOFTWARE
When using the PSS Merlin Software, the
PSS Merlin Entry Control Board is not
required. The PSS Merlin PC Modem
communicates directly with the wearers’
PSS Merlin Modems. Even non-telemetry
users can be displayed by entering a time
to whistle countdown in the Software.
Thanks to a weatherproof USB port, the
robust and IP 65 rated PSS Merlin PC
Modem does not require an additional
power supply. In order to avoid loss of data,
the system offers a three-way back-up: The
PC Modem, the Software and an optional,
external memory always save the latest
status of the persons being logged on – no
data will be lost. When using the overview
mode, an incident commander can gather
the information from several, independent
entry control points. Analysis of this data
gives a comprehensive picture to aid further
decision making. A training mode gives
users the ability to train in the operation of
the software and carry out realistic incident
simulations. Post incident, the data collected
can be documented in a report which
it is then also possible to load into
the fire brigade administration software
Drägerware.ZMS/fire.
ALL INFORMATION AT ONE GLANCE
The Dräger Bodyguard 7000 combines life
critical status updates: Displaying cylinder
pressure, time to whistle, acoustic and
optical warning signals, automatic distress
signals, manual distress signals. When
used with the PSS Merlin Telemetry System,
Bodyguard 7000 displays radio signal
status. All data is stored on the device and
can be documented or easily retrieved to
optimize training.
INCREASED WEARER COMFORT,
MAXIMUM FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
The PSS Merlin Modem is designed to fit
perfectly onto the backplate of Dräger PSS
5000 and PSS 7000 series breathing apparatus. It is located centrally between the
backplate and the cylinder resulting in a
seamless integration with the ergonomic
carrying system. The compact design
decreases snagging risks; the clear waist
belt allows more freedom of movement. As
the PSS Merlin Modem is directly connected
to the central electronics of the Bodyguard
7000, there is only need for a single rechargeable battery to supply power to both the
Bodyguard 7000 and PSS Merlin Modem.
This simplifies the battery logistics and
charging process.

INCREASED CHARGING EFFICENCY –
EVEN IN TRUCKS
In order to save valuable time with battery
logistics, in-cab chargers are available for
both the PSS Merlin Modem and the PSS
Merlin Entry Control Board. The batteries
are re-charged easily and effectively, whilst
inside the fire truck.
For users who wish to maintain battery
packs off the breathing apparatus, Dräger
has developed a bench system which
allows up to 4 battery packs to be charged
simultaneously. Uniquely, this charger can
also perform a health check on each pack.
Simply insert the battery into the charger –
the rest is automatically carried out by the
charging station.
