Description: To begin descent, the user depresses the control lever on the Anthron. If the control lever is fully depressed in a panic situation, the descent will stop. In most applications, the Anthron operator attaches the rope end to an approved anchor and descends suspended from the device in an approved harness or bosun’s chair. The Anthron can also be inverted so that the device is attached to an approved anchor and the rope end is attached to an injured person. In this orientation, the injured person can be lowered while being controlled by a rescuer. A manually operated, controlled descent device most commonly used for suspended work positioning, self evacuation or rescue operations. The device utilizes a cam assembly that provides friction on the rope to hold a load or allow the load to descend at a controlled rate. The system consists of a 7/16” (11mm) rope, the Anthron descender, and two carabiners. Proper roping and rigging diagrams are on the side of the device, which can be installed or removed at any point on the rope and has a working load of 300 pounds (136 kg).
