Elpas Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter

The Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter from Elpas, which is part of Tyco Security Products, is a holster-worn Active RFID Tag that delivers wireless monitoring and tracking of lone workers 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, field-proven mechanical design to deliver precise real-time location data that identifies the individual in trouble and the location of the evolving security incident, according to the company.

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.
