How does the ZoneSafe Proximity Warning System Work?

31 May 2018

Explanation of how ZoneSafe works

Zonesafe uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology which creates detection zones around vehicles, assets, crossing points and walkways.

Active tags (see below) are worn by personnel, can be fitted to assets (for example a storage unit) or set up around hazards (perhaps a man hole cover or pipeline).

Tags are identified by the system when they enter the detection zone. This triggers an audible visual alert, warning vehicle operators of the tag’s close proximity to the vehicle.

Zonesafe tags do not require line of sight, and will be detected regardless of obstructions, blind spots or poor visibility.

In-Cab Control A Zonesafe in-cab control unit is fitted within reach of the vehicle’s operator. An audible visual alarm alerts the operator every time a tagged person or object is detected entering the antenna’s detection zone.

AntennasZonesafe detection antenna(s) are fitted to a forklift (or any size or type of vehicle). This creates a 3-9 metre 360° continuous detection zone around the vehicle, which detects personnel or objects with a ZoneSafe tag.

Active tagsZonesafe active RFID tags are worn by all personnel or fitted to assets (perhaps a stacking unit). The tag can be placed in a hi viz jacket, clipped to a lanyard, fitted to a hard hat, worn on a belt or simply placed in a pocket.

Data managementZoneSafe’s technology also offers event data and near-miss reporting via onboard data logging and our Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, Insight. Read more here.
