Wireless Lone Worker Call Points
The RDNET1000 call point family have been specifically designed to meet the challenges of the industrial and sporting sectors.
Available sealed to IP68 and with ATEX Zone 2 Certification the call point can be used indoors, outdoors, in the damp, wet, cold and hazardous locations. With its wide range of operating frequencies and antenna configurations we can supply systems to cover areas from a few hundred square meters to hectares.
Powered by state of the art lithium cell technology the call points can achieve a battery life of up to 10-years and for true piece of mind there is an automated self checking message broadcast every 5-minutes which can be monitored by the alarm receiver station. Unlike traditional call points there is no glass to break, in an emergency simply lift up the protective flap, and push the large waterproof panic button. The internal electronic circuit will spring into action memorising the call, changing the pilot LED from the Green standby to Red alarm and broadcasting the alarm message over and over again until the call is cleared down using the second smaller clear button.
The call point includes many unique features including a two hyper bright pilot LEDs that permit both the location of the call point to be identified in poor visibility and its status, i.e. in standby or alarm. Finally, for critical applications there is an automatic health broadcast option and low battery alarm.
Finally, when it comes to mounting the call point features a unique detachable back box that included four mounting spikes in each corner. These spikes can be used to space the call point away from the wall or cut to permit the mounting on un-even surfaces such as ship lap clad buildings such as stables blocks.

Under Health and Safety Law employers have a duty of care towards their staff across all industry sectors including farming and equine industry. Too often we here stories of workers being seriously injured or killed due to a fall, trip, slip, accident or being from a horse or crushed by and loose or animal.
Lone working strictly speaking is illegal and we all break the law when we ask people involved with heavy animals which includes horses to work alone. Whether the person is riding a horse, exercising it in a school, mucking out a stable, washing a horse, lunging, long reining, there are serious risks.
The Lone Ranger is a Lone Worker System comprises of a series of wireless emergency call points that are installed around a stable yard or riding school. The call points are battery powered, water proof and can be easily operated wearing gloves. In emergency the button is pressed transmitting a coded message back to a single or multiple remote receivers that raise the alarm using a low level siren so as not to panic the horses.
In practice a system may comprise of as many call points are you wish and as many receivers all dotted around the yard. If required the receivers can also be linked into reporting systems such as PMR radios, walky talkies, pagers and mobile telephones extending the coverage from a few hundred of meters to many km.
