The ProSensor System Explained
Deckvest 5D 170 Pro Sensor Firing System is activated by contact with water. A compressed paper element dissolves to release a sprung needle which pierces the gas cylinder.
Sea, spray, or rainwater running downwards through the unit should not cause activation-only water flowing upwards will activate firing ... take a look at the short video of the 'fire-hose' test where a lucky test subject is fire-hosed with their deckvest on to demonstrate the protection against inadvertent inflation.
- Very reliable activation when immersed
- Easy to check and re-arm at sea
- Easy to convert to ‘manual firing’ only
- Pro Sensor has an indicator to show armed status
- Water sensitive activation system
- Uses a compressed paper capsule that dissolves and releases a spring to puncture the gas cylinder. (Pro Sensor has indictators to show status of cap and cylinder)
- The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down jacket will not cause activation.
- Can be prone to accidental inflation in heavy breaking sea conditions or if stored in a damp, unventilated location
- Cylinder can work loose over time so needs checking regularly
- Cylinder can corrode/leak if stored damp
- 3 year replacement date printed on firing cap
