Elpas, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, will introduce its Lone Worker Emergency Call Transmitter as part of its Emergency Call Solution at IFSEC 2014, on stand D1100 from June 17 to 19.
The transmitter ensures that workres who may be subject to attack or injury when operating on their own can send alerts about their situation and responders can be dispatched to the location of the security incident.
Using Elpas’ Real-Time Location System (RTLS), the unit transmits real-time location data that identifies the name and location of the worker in need, which then can be used to manage emergency response.
David Fensterheim, Vice President, Product Management for Elpas, said: “In high-risk environments such as correctional institutions, petrochemical plants or other perilous environments, workers need to be able to transmit information on their location and situation as quickly and accurately as possible, even when under attack. The Lone Worker Emergency Call Transmitter is an integral part of our overall emergency call solution, providing precise, real-time data when it’s needed most.”
The products has two emergency call buttons that are located on either side of the unit for manual, wireless duress alerting. An onboard tilt switch and a pull cord are for automatic alarm sending if a lone worker is knocked down, or even becomes unconscious, or if the unit is taken from the victim by force. The weatherproof call transmitter is designed to combat false alarms through a dedicated front button that is used to clear alerts.
