Triteq's RMU helps protect staff and enables employers to meet Home Office guidelines
Industrial research and design specialist Triteq Limited has announced a new product that provides security for workers operating alone in remote areas, as well as monitoring the intruder, smoke and temperature alarms of unmanned sites. Ideal for applications such as electricity substations, mobile phone base stations and portable generators, the RMU features a "clocking in" system which enables workers to log their arrival on-site at the push of a button. If the RMU's reset button has not been pressed within a pre-programmed time, the unit transmits an alarm to head office, enabling the employer to summon assistance. The unit also features a distress button to send an immediate alarm if required.
In addition to the remote worker system the unit can accept inputs from up to three PIR sensors, a smoke detector and temperature input. In the event of an alarm condition, the RMU can activate a live audio or video transmission, enabling head office to determine more information about the situation.
Graham Pocock of Triteq explained the benefits of the RMU, "There are a number of systems available that provide remote monitoring of alarms and other sensors, but this is the only system that offers a high degree of lone worker protection – something that recent health and safety legislation has placed great emphasis on by increasing the obligations of employers to provide security for those working alone."
Supplied in a rugged, water-resistant housing, the RMU can be integrated easily into existing telemetry systems or installed as a stand-alone, GSM-based device using mains or battery power.
Established in 1993, Triteq Limited specialises in the design and manufacture of industrial, commercial and consumer electronic products. The company's research and development team can assist at any stage of a project, if necessary taking it from initial concept through to design, testing and final manufacture.
