Elpas, part of Tyco Security Products, announced the availability of its Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter. The Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter is a holster-worn Active RFID Tag, which delivers wireless monitoring and tracking of lone workers, prison guards and security personnel who may be subject to attack or injury in high-risk workplace environments. The transmitter combines RF/IR/LF indoor RTLS technologies in a cost-effective, mechanical design to deliver precise real-time location data that identifies the individual in trouble and the location of the evolving security incident. The transmitter includes two emergency call buttons on either side of the unit for manual wireless duress alerting. An onboard tilt switch and a pull cord enable automatic alarming when the protected staff member is knocked down or if the unit is grabbed by force.
