Microprocessors Provide the Fire Service with the Ultimate 'Muscle Memory' - Firehouse.com (blog)
Microprocessors, or mini computers, are controlling the world these days and they’re controlling equipment in the fire service more and more as each day goes by. I was at the trade show this spring and I was struck by the number of items that are... Most of our phones these days have more technology and computer power than they had when the Apollo space launches occurred and can probably manage a Fortune 500 company with no trouble. But, as the old adage goes, the fire service represents 200 years of tradition unimpeded by progress. It just took a little longer for it to hit the fire service, but it’s now full speed ahead with automation. In fact, in many cases it’s a very good thing. Muscle memory is something firefighters know a lot about and it’s supposed to be achieved by constant training. It becomes automatic so when stuff hits the fan, we all know what we’re supposed to do without too much thinking. So, think of the microprocessor as that “muscle memory. ” We “teach” the technology what we want it to do and when we want to do it and manufacturers make sure the equipment they make for us will do it. It’s a reasonably simple process and one we are coming to rely more on as technology progresses. Aerials these days will not rotate over the short-jacked side of the rig if there’s a danger of it tipping over or becoming unstable. That’s done by microprocessors that measure parameters and stop operations if they become dangerous. At o-dark-thirty hours, that’s a good thing when our minds and our muscle memory might be a little foggy from sleep deprivation. Besides, from everything I know, there are overrides that let humans make the ultimate decision. So, if a firefighter, or officer, decided to operate a little outside the envelope, which is very conservative, to make a heroic rescue, they can make the decision to do just that. It goes back to another old adage – risk a lot to save a lot, risk a little to save a little… and you know the rest. One of the most interesting things I saw at the show was a fully automated SCBA bottle refill system developed by Bauer Compressor.

Product description

Description:
Hausbell Portable Air Compressor is a small but powerful portable air compressor kit that is capable of inflating up to 31" tires quickly, using its maximum working pressure of 140 PSI. The kit features a low Amp draw of electricity from your 12-volt battery to power compression, making every application as easy as connecting the tire chuck to the valve stem and turning the unit on. Tire pressure can be monitored using the gauge mounted on top of the unit. Accessories included with the kit can be stowed in the included hard protecting carry-case.

Attention:
The air compressor should only be operated for 12-15 minutes and then allowed to cool down before using again. This is a tank less air compress and has to work continuous to put out the air.
