Every life is unique. It is to be protected, supported, and saved: It is because of these ideas that we have penned this history of Dräger. A history whose first chapter was written by Dr. Heinrich Dräger in 1889. Our idea of turning technology into "technology for life" also guides us into the future.
From an Innovative SCBA that started way back in 1889 to Fixed Gas Detection to Thermal Imagers, Drager protects you in so many ways.

To minimize the risk of damage or snagging, the Dräger Sentinel 7000 electronic system and air-supply hoses are integrated into the backplate. To further streamline and reduce snag hazards, the lung-demand valve (LDV) - and Dräger Sentinel hoses are routed over the shoulders. Conventional waist-mounted hoses can also be fitted to the carrying system, making the Dräger PSS 5000 one of the most versatile SCBA systems available.
The Dräger PSS 7000 SCBA is designed so the heaviest components sit at a lower center of gravity to increase stability and balance, allowing the wearer to work more effectively with less fatigue. The PSS 7000 includes an adjustable harness suspension system that provides the ultimate in comfort and extended wear.
In many industrial environments, workers need to be highly aware of exposure to toxic or combustible gases and vapors or a lack of oxygen. That’s why portable gas detectors and analyzers are essential – so they can detect, measure, monitor and react to any gases in the immediate area around them.
Offers both single- and multi-gas mobile gas monitors that reliably detect a wide range of gases. Measures CO, H2S, SO2 or O2 reliably and precisely
The Dräger Pac® 8500 single-sensor detection device is a reliable and precise instrument even under the toughest of conditions. The detector can be equipped with a hydrogen-compensated CO sensor or a Dräger dual sensor. The dual sensors provide the option of measuring two gases at once: H2S with CO, O2 with CO, or H2S with O2.
Dräger’s X-am® 2500 accurately detects O2, CO, NO2, SO2 and H2S and is the only 1-4 gas monitor you need in industrial and refinery applications. The X-am® 2500 combines reliable sensor technology with long battery life and intuitive operation in an instrument that defines safety.

Fires and other hazardous environments pose unseen challenges and dangers. Now you can know before you go with the Dräger UCF Series thermal imaging cameras. With first-rate image quality and precision, this camera is intrinsically safe and approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
As a true one-handed thermal imaging camera, the Dräger UCF 6000 means the other hand is always free when the user needs it. This ease of use is an invaluable benefit, adding safety as well as freedom of movement. The compact UCF 6000 weighs only 3.1 lbs, making the camera easy to operate without excess fatigue during extended firefighting operations. The intuitive design of the camera means there’s less distraction for the user in difficult and stressful situations.
The Dräger UCF 7000 delivers excellent images to firefighters even if visibility is less than optimal. A resolution of 160 x 120 pixels as well as a 2x zoom provide a detailed impression of the situation. When the current image is always right in front of your eyes, rooms and the immediate vicinity are searched quickly and safely. The risk of overlooking a detail is especially likely and a problem in difficult situations. Thanks to the "application switch" (application-specific operating modes), the Dräger UCF 7000 makes it possible to optimize the image display of the camera for the specific task at hand. For example, the camera's display can be optimized for finding persons or finding sources of fire.
Optimized image processing provides an overview in just seconds. The Dräger UCF 8000 even makes it possible to “see around corners” if your equipment limits your freedom of movement or field of view. The snapshot function provides a temporary freeze-frame of the thermal image, which can then be viewed on the display. This allows you to examine and scan difficult to access areas quickly and safely. The integrated laser pointer simplifies isolating and showing the position of hazards—such as hotspots—to other team members and clearly defines the path of attack. The Dräger UCF 8000 offers a high temperature resolution—even in hot situations. This makes it possible to detect cooler objects such as people with best possible resolution—even in the vicinity of a fire. The Dräger UCF 8000 integrates video and sound recording functions, as well as the ability to capture single images.
The UCF 9000 is capable of capturing video and individual photos of not just the displayed thermal images, but also from real digital images. With this option, you can make a live recording of real operations and training situations and evaluate them on the display on site with the play function. Even when the visibility is extremely poor, the UCF 9000 will still deliver first-rate image quality and detailed precision.
With its 384 x 288 pixels it offers an extremely high resolution and thus provides up to 44% more detail than other high resolution firefighting thermal imaging cameras. Its 57° field of view (horizontal) provides you with an extra-large overview of the situation. To bring the scene in even closer, you have the option of using the 4x zoom in addition to the 2x zoom.
