What sets the Rescom® Elite™ Communication System apart from other hardline systems on the market?
Our 10,000+ lb. tensile strength NFPA-rated Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ contains built-in wiring, simplifying line management and thus, reducing the chance of User entanglement while working.
It has been tested to provide communication up to the point of rope failure at over 10,000+ lb. load. This rope is ideal for Search and Rescue (SAR) personnel or Fire Fighters. SED’s Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ or Extension Cords provide clear, reliable communication for up to 4.8 km (3 miles) per Headset. Connectors and ropes can also be submerged in water up to 10m (35’).
DuraCORE™ Cable with a SEDFLEX™ jacket which makes the cables more rugged than average communication cables in the market.
What Is Rescom® Elite™?
With a new & sleek plastic housing and a no-nonsense design, Rescom® Elite™ New Generation Rescue Communication System is manufactured by SED to replace the legendary Rescom® Modular™. These systems typically consist of:
- A Master Interface (DMI) with a Headset for the Attendant
- Two or more Slave Interface units (DSI) with Headsets for Entrants
- Combined Safety/Communication Ropes™ and/or DuraCORE™ Cables
- A Junction Box
The belt-mounted Master Interface (DMI) provides centralized power for all other Interface Units (DSI). The entire system operates on low voltage and can be powered by 3 AA batteries, which are housed in the DMI unit. The Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ is a unique SED design and is used as a primary or secondary lifeline in rescue scenarios, setting the standard for communication lifelines for over 37 years.
