This controlled descent device has an automatic speed braking system. The brake is controlled by centrifugal forces which keep the speed of the device constant during the descent process and enables a rapid and safe escape.
The maximum single descent distance is 150 metres, with an approximate descent speed of 0.9m/sec.
