Rescom® Elite™ is an instantly deployable, Intrinsically Safe, hardline system designed to provide clear, effective, and continuous communication for a confined space or a high-angle rescue scenario. 

With a new & sleek plastic housing and a no-nonsense design, the Rescom® Elite™ is the newest generation of rope rescue communication system manufactured by SED to replace the legendary Rescom® Modular™.  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 (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.

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 the ignition of a specific hazardous atmospheric mixture in its most easily ignited concentration.  OSHA has 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® 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 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 expandable up to 10-Man, but 5-Man and 7-Man Kits have been the most popular choice by rescuers.  Each kit consists of the following:

  • Headsets
  • A Master Interface (DMI)
  • Slave Interface(s) (DSI)
  • Combined Safety/Communication Rope(s)™ and/or DuraCORE™ Communication Cable(s)
  • Rope Bags
  • Equipment Case and a Junction Box (available with 2-8 connectors, as per User requirement)
