ClearCommand HCS Helmet Communication System
The helmet communication system from MSA is a state of the art radio interface device which significantly improves the user's ability to receive and send messages even in loud ambient noise environments. It goes wherever you go. The system consists of a helmet mounted microphone and ear speaker assembly that weighs 5.3 oz. and easily snaps onto the user's fire helmet or industrial style helmet's ratchet suspension. The helmet mic/ear speaker assembly connects to a lapel microphone or optional stand alone PTT (push to talk) unit. The lapel microphone and PTT are permanently fitted with a connector for attachement to the specific radio of choice. The helmet communication system also offers a plug-in truck communication adapter that can be used by firefighters, along with their helmet microphone assembly, on the way to a fire scene or other incident. Once the firefighter arrives at the scene, the truck system cable is unplugged from the helmet microphone and the helmet microphone cable end is connected to the users lapel mic or PTT.
  • Incorporates a "noise eliminating" bone conduction voice transmitter that virtually eliminates high ambient noise levels
  • Custom user fitted ear speaker brings all incoming communication directly to the user's ear. No need to lift the lapel mic up to your ear to hear transmission
  • Easily snaps onto the ratchet suspension of fire helmets or industrial style helmets (Wildland). The unit can be easily transferred to other users and no tools are required for removal
  • Can be used over the top of facepiece head harnesses, hoods and liners without losing the quality of the transmission
  • The bone conduction microphone is made of soft silicone material, which makes it comfortable to wear, with no pressure points
  • The helmet microphone assembly can be reversed on the helmet suspension to position the ear speaker on either ear
  • The helmet mic system, when used with the lapel mic or PTT, is powered by the battery from the radio. No need to replace or recharge dry cells
  • Special connectors suitable for most common radios are available for the lapel microphone and PTT, which allows users to adapt the system to their existing radios
  • The helmet mic is NFPA certified which allows its use while fighting fires
  • Intrinsic safety approvals allow the use of the helmet communication system in hazardous environments
  • The stand-alone PTT unit is designed for use under hazardous material suits. The large buton makes it easy for the user to depress and communicate
  • The helmet mic incorporates a cable keeper which allows for storage of the cable when it's not connected to the lapel mic or PTT

ClearCommand Communications System for Ultra Elite Facepieces
MSA's ClearCommand Communications System is designed specifically to meet the modern communications needs of firefighters. Because it's available in two versions, amplifier and amplifier with radio interface, firefighting teams can be properly fitted for the job at hand. Also, the systems are designed for "shared use" of the amplifier with a unique "bus-bar" arrangement, so individual issue is not required.
The ClearCommand systems feature an internally mounted microphone coupled with a large diameter (50 mm) amplifier speaker for optimal clarity and volume. Using a patented circuit design, the system delivers more than twice the volume of a facepiece alone. Mounted in an "out-of-the-way" position, the ClearCommand system doesn't block vision or mechanical communication. The Ultra Elite's mechanical voicemitter is still fully functional, even with the system installed.
The radio interface version features the same amplifier as the amp-only version, combined with an ear-speaker for incoming radio messages and a lapel mic assembly for interface with over 100 radios. The lapel mic can be used as a component of the ClearCommand system or as a stand-alone hand mic.
Both the amplifier and radio interface models are intrinsically safe, and meet the applicable requirements of NIOSH and NFPA 1981, 1997 edition.

Overview of Air Masks for SCBA
MSA offers Air Masks in two designs --mask mounted regulator (MMR) and belt mounted regulator (BMR). Both are available in low pressure (2216 or 3000 psig) and high pressure (4500 psig) versions and can be customized with a variety of air cylinders for regular and extended use applications. All MSA Air Masks comply with NIOSH requirements. The Ultralite MMR and Custom 4500 MMR and Ultralite II and Custom 4500 II SCBAs comply with NFPA-1981, 1997 edition.
MMR Xtreme® Air Mask Ultralite® MMR and
Custom 4500 MMR SCBA
Ultralite® II and
Custom 4500® II SCBA
WorkMask™ MMR and
WorkMask™ II SCBA
Sleek, rugged and lightweight, the MMR Xtreme Air Mask is the future of self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). It has the best of everything -- from its comfortable, wide vision Ultra Elite® facepiece and clean, low profile mask mounted regulator with large shutoff button, to its high strength yet remarkably lightweight cylinder options and advanced Black Rhino or Vulcan carrier / harness assembly. Essentially, MMR Extreme Air Masks are the superior options available on the Ultralite and Custom 4500 MMR Air Masks. With MSA MMR Air Masks, performance is enhanced by a unique split regulator design. The regulator's first stage is located on the cylinder backplate, while the second stage attaches to the user's facepiece. The low pressure Ultralite MMR Air Mask can be used with cylinders pressurized to either 2216 psig or 3000 psig. The Custom 4500 MMR Air Mask is used with 4500 psig cylinders. All MMR units can be easily upgraded to include the Quick-Fill option for emergency breathing system, plus fast, convenient refilling of air cylinders.

For added versatility of MMR Air Masks, dual purpose conversion kits are available to provide the capabilities of an air line respirator and SCBA in one. Cylinder choices remain the same.

Ultralite II and Custom 4500 II Air Masks are similar in versatility to their MMR counterparts, but feature a belt mounted regulator. Available with unique Quick-Fill option for emergency escape plus fast, convenient refilling of cylinders. Ultralite II and Custom 4500 II Air Masks are also available in dual purpose versions, which combine the capabilities of an SCBA and an air line respirator in one unit. The WorkMask II and WorkMask MMR SCBA are economical, lightweight and durable units designed for use in industrial environments that do not require compliance with NFPA-1981. The WorkMask II and WorkMask MMR SCBAs are not designed for firefighting.

An optional Dual Purpose version combines the capabilities of an SCBA and an air line respirator for greater versatility.

MMR Xtreme Air Mask with CBRN Protection
MSA has you protected with the latest enhancements to our MMR Xtreme Air Mask, the fire service's first NFPA 1981-2002 edition, NIOSH-approved CBRN self contained breathing apparatus.
MSA's new MMR Xtreme CBRN SCBA was developed to provide you with positive protection from CBRN agents, according to the stringent live-agent test regimen of the NIOSH approval process. Because conventional silicone diaphragms are among the SCBA components most vulnerable to CBRN agent permeation, our positive protection design seals the new diaphragm of the Firehawk regulator from any intial contact with contaminants. The key to this protection are these revolutionary components, which lie within the CBRN version of the Firehawk second stage regulator:
  • MSA's exclusive Tetraplex™ Protective Shield (patent pending). It serves as the first line of defense in preventing chemical warfare agents from contacting the vital components of the regulator and entering the user's airstream.
  • A permeation resistant regulator diaphragm made of a proprietary rubber compound. It serves as the second line of defense in protecting the user's breathing zone.
  • A modified valve core body (the engine of the regulator). It supports the new shield and diaphragm with a high performance air delivery system.

These components, plus one of the industry's best fitting facepieces, MSA's Ultra Elite facepiece, ensure reliable and effective respiratory protection not only from agents that might be used in a terrorist attack, but also from many of the lethal byproducts of combustion that are encountered in everyday firefighting. Chemical plants, nuclear facilities, laboratories, and other industries harbor unknown and life threatening environments that you might have to face. With MSA's new CBRN MMR Xtreme Air Mask, you can be positive you are protected on every call.

CBRN upgrade kits for MMR Xtreme Air Masks:

  • CBRN upgrade kits are now available for NFPA 1981-1997 and 2002 Edition MSA MMR Air Masks
  • Upgrade kits simply enable the replacement of the Air Mask's existing MMR 1/4 turn or standard Firehawk with the new CBRN Firehawk MMR by any MSA authorized C.A.R.E. Maintenance facility
  • Firefighters benefit from the added CBRN protection and the enhanced ergonomics of the new Firehawk MMR

MSA pursued and received CBRN approvals for the latest and most popular SCBA components. These include the Vulcan and Black Rhino Carrier/Harness assemblies and the Ultra Elite facepiece with 4-point adjustable SpeeD-ON Head harness. If you have a rubber or 5-point SpeeD-ON head harness, your facepieces can easily be upgraded to the most current 4-point style.

Cylinders for SCBA units
Stealth™ Cylinders
Stealth Cylinders are the lightest SCBA air cylinders ever developed by MSA. They feature a unique outer wrap made of lightweight, high performance carbon fibers, which reduce cylinder weight by two to six pounds when compared to fiberglass wrapped cylinders and as much as ten pounds when compared to aluminum cylinders. They are available in five models to accommodate a wide range of applications.
Fiberglass Fully-Wound Composite Cylinders
These lightweight models feature a fiberglass outerwrap and are available in low and high pressure versions, including a low profile model for confined spaces work. They are color coded to differentiate cylinder pressure.
Fiberglass Hoop-Wound Composite Cylinder
Available in a 30 minute low pressure model, MSA's hoop-wound cylinder features fiberglass wrapping and provides a cost saving advantage over fully-wound composites. In general, hoop-wound cylinders are three to five pounds heavier than fully-wound fiberglass or carbon-wrapped cylinders.
3AL Cylinder
Less expensive than MSA's hoop-wound cylinder, this 30 minute low pressure cylinder features all-aluminum construction. Because of its weight (approximately 18 pounds), it is designed primarily for customers who don't use an SCBA frequently. The 3AL Cylinder also offers an indefinite service life. Unlike composite cylinders, it does not have to be retired after 15 years of use, provided the cylinder meets the requirements of the hydrotest, which must be done every 5 years.

SCBA Key Components
Facepiece Assemblies for FireHawk M7 Air Masks

Ultra Elite® Facepiece

The MSA Ultra Elite Facepiece offers an effective combination of comfort and performance.
Designed to provide exceptional peripheral and downward vision, the Ultra Elite Facepiece features a super-soft facepiece texture for a smooth and comfortable fit. It also resists chemical attack and temperature extremes, and withstands rugged day-to-day use without tearing and ripping.
The design ofthe Ultra Elite Facepiece is based on extensive anthropometric studies of the face-length, temple-width and chin-width data from more than 8,000 individuals. The result is a facepiece that provides improved seals against a wide range of facial contours. To provide a secure, comfortable fit, the facepiece utilizes five adjustable straps with stainless steel, field-replaceable buckles that resist chemical attack. The straps also feature slightly larger adjustment tabs that are easier to manipulate, even with gloves on.
For slip-on convenience, the Ultra Elite Facepiece can be equipped with the SpeeD-ON® Facepiece Harness. Made of flame- and heat-resistant Kevlar Fabric, the harness features a hair-net type, five-point suspension that can be easily and securely adjusted at each point.
Lenses on MSA full facepieces are molded from polycarbonate, and a special super hardcoating provides a tough, durable facepiece lens to resist scratching.
Firehawk® MMR
The Firehawk MMR, MSA's mask-mounted regulator assembly, is available with two different attachment systems, the Firehawk MMR truly redefines ease-of-use and ease-of-maintenance, combined with outstanding performance.
The Firehawk second-stage regulator features a unique Slide-To-Connect (STC) attachment system that allows firefighters to hang the regulator on the facepiece in the "ready position," then simply push it into the facepiece when SCBA air is needed. Doffing of the regulator, while wearing gloves, is also easy with two large release buttons that automatically turn-off the flow of air as the regulator is doffed. A dual­swivel feature on the pressure hose provides maximum freedom-of-head movement and the silicone hose material ensures hose flexibility even at very cold temperatures.
In addition to the STC system, MSA also offers a second connection option for the Firehawk Regulator, the Push-to-Connect (PTC). The PTC's Adapter self-centers the Firehawk regulator and the loud dual sound of the regulator engaging onto the facepiece provides you with confidence that the Firehawk PTC is securely attached to your facepiece-an action that takes just seconds, when seconds count!
Maintenance is also a breeze, considering the Firehawk design requires no tools, adhesives, or sealants, and has approximately 70% fewer parts as compared to other regulators on the market. Additionally, there are no internal adjustments required. Any adjustments to the regulator may be accomplished at a single adjustment point through the outlet port of the regulator.
Ease of use and maintenance, combined with outstanding performance, makes the Firehawk MMR clearly the product of choice.
Heads-Up Display (HUD)
When you open your Air Mask's cylinder valve, the HUD automatically activates, displaying the cylinder pressure reading in 25% increments.
ClearCommand Communications System
MSA's ClearCommand Communications System is designed specifically to meet the modern communications needs of firefighters. It features an internally mounted microphone coupled with a large-diameter (50mm) amplifier speaker for optimal clarity and volume. Using a proprietary circuit design, the system delivers more than twice the volume of a facepiece alone.

FireHawk M7 Air Mask
SCBA Features

1. TAKING THE HEAT
Although MSA PASS alarms have performed in extreme temperatures for more than a decade, a top priority was to design an alarm that could really take the heat! The new M7 alarm (patent pending) was developed in cooperation with prominent university acoustic experts, resulting in an emitter that exceeds 95 decibels with solid performance at the NFPA 500F test! Once again, giving you that lifesaving edge in the face of danger.
2. VIRTUALLY "BULLET-PROOF" ELECTRONICS
Like an armor shield, the M7 HUD, Power Module, and Control Module are encased in a proprietary high-temperature impact-grade polymer, providing the highest possible protection against impact and water ingress. ­Electronics enclosures are permanently sonic ally welded to a hermetic standard and use a high-pressure O-ring to ensure a consistent water-tight seal. The new M7 electronics are virtually "bullet-proof" against fire-ground hazards.
3. STRAIGHT-TALK COMMUNICATIONS
We've got you covered with communications, starting with a high-performance mechanical speech diaphragm, performing so well that it may likely serve as a stand-alone solution to meet the latest NFPA communications requirements! Backing the mechanical diaphragm is an electronic amplifier with an internal facepiece microphone for ultimate clarity, a digital signal processor to eliminate feedback even when shouting, three volume levels, and an auto-off feature after 20 minutes of no-use to save batteries. The new Air Mask speaks loud and clear when it comes to communications.
4. FIREGROUND MANAGEMENT
Firefighter accountability systems have never before been as practical, complete, and user-friendly as the MSA M7 Accountability System. It's based on the ICM® TxR Unit introduced in mid-2006, which has thousands of systems deployed in virtually every type of fire department, and they're performing phenomenally! It displays a full array of visual and audible information for up to 100 firefighters within a one-mile· line-of-site - exactly what incident commanders wanted. Record keeping is also made easy by downloading reports. This crown jewel is available only from MSA!
5. EXTENDED PROTECTION
The new FireHawk M7 Air Mask is not your typical SCBA. Firefighters need to be prepared for the unexpected, and emergency egress from a 2nd-floor or higher can be impossible without the right safety equipment. That's why the new M7 Air Mask offers an NFPA- compliant integrated rappelling system, called the Rescue Belt, providing firefighters with one more lifesaving option in the face of danger.
"Above and beyond" protection is also provided with the CBRN FireHawk MMR. The CBRN FireHawk includes a positive-protection Tetraplex™ shield, to prevent contact between chemical warfare agents and the most vulnerable component of regulators, their thin elastomeric diaphragm. Other "air-wash" approaches may pass in laboratory conditions. The shield provides positive protection against all potential conditions.
External hazards are bad enough without having concerns of spreading illness among firefighters through shared-use SCBA. The Ultra Elite® facepiece protects you against user cross-contamination with MSA's inhalation check-valve: a "must have" in modern safety equipment.

SCBA Features Continued

6. LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO USE
Firefighters already have enough weight to carry and gear to maintain, so MSA engineers set out to lighten the load of components, reduce parts counts, simplify maintenance, maximize user comfort, and modularize the design. The FireHawk M7 Air Mask has a lightweight polymer backplate, with quick-release harness straps, an error-proof cam-lock cylinder attachment, fast change-out electronic components, a large swiveling lumbar pad, and regulators that will fit in the palm of your hand (less than 30 parts for the MMR and 14 for the 1st stage). Our time-tested Ultra Elite facepiece has unbeatable comfort, visibility, communications, cross-contamination protection, fit, and seal.
7. PLATFORM FOR THE FUTURE
The FireHawk M7 Air Mask is designed to accept future technology upgrades. Included in every M7 electronics ensemble is a 2.4GHz personal wireless network, a network that transmits and receives encrypted information over a short-range on a firefighter's body.
This new wireless feature provides the capability to add on future technology that can provide additional information back to incident command through the FireHawk M7 Accountability System. Software can also be upgraded wirelessly in the field, through the M7 wireless network. You never have to worry about radio interference either - we have you covered with a thoroughly-tested RFI shield design that protects against all fireground radio signals. The new FireHawk M7 Air Mask provides you with the best technology today and positions you for well into the future.

Accountability is key to every firefighter's safety on a fire scene. MSA's new optional Accountability System revolutionizes fireground safety by combining the latest computer software with a high-performance radio module and the field-proven technology of MSA's ICM Tx Integrated PASS.

A new way to monitor vital information

  • Each MSA base station can monitor up to 50 firefighters, and you can use multiple base stations on a single computer.
  • The FireHawk M7 Air Mask with telemetry trans­mits to incident command the firefighter's name, team assignment, cylinder pressure, service­time remaining, PASS alarms (motion or man­uall, thermal alarms, battery status, radio connectivity, and evacuation ac­knowledgement.

A fireground management system

  • Personalized 10 tags for each firefighter tell inci­dent command exactly who is on scene.
  • An integrated PAR (personnel accountability re­port) timer helps manage radio calls to each team.
  • Incident command can manually add firefighters who are not wearing an SCBA or mutual aid firefighters, so all personnel can be accounted for.

Intuitive and easy to use

  • Assign firefighters to teams by clicking on a fire­fighter's icon and dragging it to another team.
  • A volume of critical information is available at a glance of the screen, due to the large number of firefighters that can be displayed and the pictorial format of the information.
  • Receive both audible and visual indications of critical events such as PASS alarms or low ­ pressure alarms.

A two-way evacuation feature

  • Incident command is assured that firefighters receive all evacuation messages. When incident command transmits the alarm through the FireHawk M7 Air Mask, they'll know the firefighter received it, because the unit automatically sends a confirmation message to the base station.
  • By simply pressing a button on his/her own control module, a firefighter can send a manual confirmation to acknowledge that they have re­ceived and understand the critically important evacuation message.
  • Firefighters will hear the evacuation alarm on their own personal PASS device. Also, visual indications in the HUD and an icon on the control module will alert the firefighter that it is time to evacuate.
  • An individual firefighter, a team of firefighters, or all firefighters can be evacuated with the click of a button.
  • Although certain concrete and steel commercial structures can challenge any radio signal, MSA's Accountability System coverage with radio technology provides highly reliable performance for a 1-mile line-of-sight range.
  • Due to the spread-spectrum design, it does not interfere with other high-band radio frequency equipment.
  • For additional safety, both base station and firefighter modules have an icon message to in­form users if a firefighter falls out of radio signal range, so that alternate accountability measures, such as voice radio contact with teammates, can be taken.
MSA's new M7 Accountability System revolutionizes fireground safety by combining the latest computer software with a high-performance radio module and the field-proven technology of MSA's ICM TxR Integrated PASS.
