When hazardous machinery such as shredders, presses, conveyor belts, and robotised islands, are present in a plant, it is of utmost importance to prevent unauthorised personnel from entering as well as to prevent accidental situations such as illnesses or distractions from happening as they may jeopardise safety.
The system can also operate following the opposite logic, that is, the machine can be started only if the Head of the department or the Safety Officer are present.
Whenever a worker wearing an active Tag enters a danger zone around fixed machinery, the system can, in real time:
The active Tag worn by the operator is detected regardless of its position and even if it is covered by any material or the operator’s body.
The system is made up of a maximum of two devices that are easy to install and quick to configure, without disrupting the company’s infrastructure.
The system works regardless of vibration, is not affected by metal structures of the machinery or the environmental factor (dust, for instance).
This solution can be associated to an access control system that tracks all the movements of personnel coming in/out the different areas of the company.
