Fast roping and rappelling device with pyroelectric emergency release.

Documents, Manuals

The EDX01 is an advanced fast roping and rappelling device for EC155 helicopters. It features two sophisticated self-locking rope couplings on each side of the helicopter, thus adding up to a payload exceeding 1000kg. The high maximum load ratings of the couplings allow for advanced and heavy duty rappelling operations, e.g. for drug-detecting dogs and their handlers. The couplings include an optional pyroelectric emergency release mechanism, which, in addition to the manual rope release levers for the cabin operator, enables the pilot to execute load release in case of severe emergencies.

The EDX01 device is mounted th the standard tie-down threads above the sliding doors of the helicopter. Fixed provisions are only required when the pyroelectric emergency release option is used. These consist of the internal wiring and a cockpit mounted electronic control box.

The slim, unobtrusive shape of the EDX01 keeps aerodynamic losses of cruise performance limited.

In conjunction with the LifeLine double rope, the EDX01 can be used for lifting NHEC loads of up to 400kg. Approval for HEC applications is available as a separate option.

Additional equipment (harnesses, connectors, rope brakes etc.) usable with the EDX01 is available from the HRS01 package.

For the previous versions of the Dauphin (SA-365 up to ASS-365 N3), our EDX02 is the suitable device approved for fast roping, rappelling and human external cargo.
