The Defuser is Edelrid's energy absorber designed exclusively to accompany the Fuse backup/fall arrester. The high load capacity enables users to work with heavy equipment and offers an additional reserve for rescue situations where users need to bear the weight of the person in need of assistance on their own system.
This compact unit can withstand user loads of up to 220 kg and has a maximum arrest shock 30 % below the standard. At 4 kN, the maximum impact force is significantly lower than the legally stipulated maximum of 6 kN. The window makes it possible to visually check the intactness of the energy absorber at any time.
