MISTY ELECTRONIC BLINDMASK

Add the challenge of low visibility to any training scenario with the Misty. From emergency evacuation training for employees to hands-on fire rescue training for firefighters, Misty helps your trainees learn to operate comfortably in smoke filled conditions. With the handheld controller, the instructor can vary the visibility from perfectly clear to near black-out conditions while having a clear view of the training exercise. Trainees learn to adapt and stay calm in challenging emergency situations. Misty is ideal for exercises in locations where using actual smoke is not possible.

The instructor unit and student units are linked via wireless communication. Using the hand held instructor unit, the trainer can determine and dynamically adjust the level of visibility experienced by the students. The system includes six different radio channels, allowing a maximum of six groups (12 students) to train in the same location.

HOW IT WORKS

The instructor unit and student units are linked via wireless communication. Using the hand held instructor unit, the trainer can determine and dynamically adjust the level of visibility experienced by the students. The system includes six different radio channels, allowing a maximum of six groups (12 students) to train in the same location.

Each misty has a built-in film that can be varied from clear to completely opaque. With the instructor unit, the desired visibility is selected for each mask. A wireless signal is sent to the student unit and the mask visibility is instantly changed. The Instructor controller displays the visibility for each mask allowing the trainer to keep a clear view on the scenario.

Versatile

Misty is designed to fit directly over SCBA masks or can be worn without a mask. The misty permits training with “smoke conditions” where use of a smoke machine or live fire isn’t possible. Set the visibility of each mask manually or select automatic mode, which constantly varies the visibility.

Realistic

Teach trainees to stay low for better visibility by varying the smoke settings. Reduce visibility settings don’t only limit the amount of light to pass through but closely simulate heavy smoke conditions.

Safe

Trainees can clear the mask at any time with an emergency stop button. After an emergency stop, the unit emits an alarm and sends an alert to the instructor’s controller. The instructor can clear all masks at any time with the “all clear” button.

Misty Package

The misty package includes the instructor’s control unit, two Misty Masks, a charger for the built-in rechargeable batteries and a rugged transport case with custom foam cutouts for all components.
