Viking DXL Integrated Beacon

This Pathfinder™ Beacon™, branded under the name EchoTracer™, is integrated into the 2002 NFPA 1981 compliant ISI® Viking DXL SCBA. Fully automated, it leaves the firefighter to focus on the more important tasks at hand. All the firefighter has to due to ensure Pathfinder coverage, is turn on the air. When the cylinder valve is opened and the SCBA is charged, the integrated PASS device and the Beacon turn on. When when the PASS device goes into alarm mode, the Beacon transmits the Pathfinder signal, allowing the firefighter to be located QUICKLY.

The Viking DXL Integrated Beacon provides automatic coverage of the firefighter. This seamless integration is possible because the Beacon is actually hard-wired into the electronics. Any Viking DXL with an integrated PASS device can be upgraded with this Beacon.
