APPLICATIONS & SPECIFICATIONS
For most installations it is a simple matter of plugging the system into the mains and securing the antenna with 2 screws.
The Lone Ranger system can be utilized anywhere there is a person working alone. Some of these situations are:-
- A council worker working alone in a remote site.
- A maintenance worker on a company site – Power stations, water treatment, chemical processing,
Steel mills, production sites,
- A maintenance worker on another company’s site.
- A Laboratory worker on a night shift.
- A person working in a hazardous area, say sand blasting or similar.
- A security guard working on a site, either fixed or moving – small and large sites.
- Drivers working alone – Couriers, taxis, truck drivers, etc
- Mine sites
- People working in remote areas – geologists, farmers, etc.
NOTES: This configuration can be used for most large sites. Each TONTO and Locator have unique ID’s. A TONTO can talk to any Locator but not direct to the Base Station. The Base Station outputs the alarms, displays the ID’s, has the relay outputs, telephone message dialer and mobile phone dialer.
NOTES: In a lot of confined spaces there needs to be 2 people present, one to carry out work in the confined space and another to keep this person in visual contact at all times in case of a problem. The second person usually gets no work done at all because of the task of keeping the other in view. With a TONTO on each the person in the confined space can signal the other in case of going down or duress. The buzzer on the observer goes off alerting him to a problem. This means the observer can go about doing other work but still be near in case there is a problem with the person in the confined space.
NOTES: This configuration could be used by maintenance workers, councils workers, courier drivers and anyone who drives alone and gets out of the vehicle. With the addition of a GPS it will also locate a person. The TONTO duress signal goes to the Locator(M) in the vehicle. If the GPS is fitted the latitude and longitude will be downloaded. A SMS message will be then sent to a pre-programmed numbers giving the vehicle number and the position. This can be also sent to a monitoring bureau who will then notify the appropriate person of the situation. A “vehicle stolen” option will also be available to complement this configuration. Both GSM, CDMA and satellite systems can be utilized.
NOTES: This could be a site with one factory building where one or more guards patrol. It could also be a laboratory with a main office located close by. The TONTO sends to the Locator which can simply have a siren as output. It could also have LED’s to indicate which TONTO alarmed. Other outputs on the Locator could be relay contacts, telephone message dialer, mobile phone (SMS), connection to existing security systems. Another option is a serial alarm output for a PC or printer. You could have a number of small systems such as these but each alarming via a mobile phone to the one central location. This may be suitable for a group of farms or remote workers.
