As the button has an integrated location receiver which detects our location beacons, it can give accurate position data when an alarm is raised either manually or when it passes a position that automatically delivers position data. Automatic alerts could be used for certain conditions e.g. leaving site.
The unit also has the ability to use built-in motion sensor and inactivity alarm functions and can therefore give an alarm when a period of inactivity occurs e.g. man-down.
The device is IP67 classified (waterproof) and has a battery life of up to 2 years. As the batteries are user replaceable, they can be swapped out by the user which keeps the running costs low.
Typical life time of battery
PAL+ is a portable alarm transmitter with features that provide increased security and personal safety, as it is a small and handy transmitter button that can be worn in several ways.
The user can easily raise the alarm by pressing the alarm button, which sends a radio signal to a receiver and on to the central server software. The alarm can then be shown on wall mounted displays, or sent to portable devices like the C-31xx range of cordless DECT phones, the SMART1 phone or a simple paging device, so that assistance can be rendered to the user in distress.
