Rescom® Modular™ is an instantly-deployable, Intrinsically Safe, hardline system that is designed to provide clear, effective, and continuous communication for a confined space or a high angle rescue scenario.  A system typically consists of a Master Interface (DMI) with a Headset, for the Attendant, and two or more Slave Interface units (DSI) with Headsets for Entrants.  The belt-mounted Master Interface provides centralized power and supplies power to all other Headsets via 3 AA batteries.  A backup Master Interface can be used as a Redundant Power Supply, guaranteeing continuous, uninterrupted communications.  The Rescom® Modular™ system and Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ are unique SED Inc.’s designs, which has been a world-wide renowned leader in this industry for over 50 years.  The Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ has a 10,000lb tensile strength and can be used as a primary or secondary lifeline in rescue scenarios.  There is simply no other product like it, in the world. 

What is Intrinsically Safe?

Intrinsically Safe means that the system is incapable of causing an explosion or being a source of ignition in the presence of potentially explosive or combustible materials and gases.  In other words, the equipment and wiring are incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy under normal or abnormal conditions to cause ignition of a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignited concentration.  OSHA and MSHA have many reports of fires caused by non-intrinsically safe systems.  Preventing fire and explosions is a top priority for all industries around the world. 

What sets the Rescom® Modular™ 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, along with the rope, can also be submerged in water up to 10m (35’).  DuraCORE™ Cable with a SEDFLEX™ jacket makes it more rugged than average communication cables. MSHA approved Communication Cables are also available for use in the mining industry.

How to choose the appropriate Kit and accessories?

You can either choose a pre-packaged kit or select specific equipment to personalize your kit.  The kits are available for 2 Users and are expandable up to 10-Man, but 5-Man and 7-Man Kits have been the most popular choice by rescuers.  Each kit consists of Headsets, Master Interface (DMI), Slave Interfaces (DSI), Combined Safety/Communication Rope™ and/or DuraCORE™ Communication Cable, Rope Bags, Equipment Case and a Junction Box (available with 6 or 8 connectors).
