Personal protective equipment (Mandown)

License for alarm management from Spectralink DECT handsets

Through lone workers protection systems, Tecnel is committed to reducing personnel exposure to hazards and complying with legal obligations for Occupational Safety.

The license enables the Spectralink 7×42 series phone’s internal protection sensors to be activated and, if needed, automatically send emergency alert to emergency team users/devices programmed into the system.

The report also contains information regarding the location of  lone workers to enable rapid and effective rescue action.

It is possible to send the alarm based on one or more detected conditions such as:

  • Hansets placed in a horizontal position (Man Down)
  • Pressing the alarm button (LongKey)
  • Phone Unreachable (Out of Radio Range)
  • Tear off lanyard, phone taken away from operator (Tear Off)
  • Speeding phone, panic escape (Fast Run)
Simple and effective customization

Various operation profiles can be defined for each worker by activating or not activating the sensitivity of various alarm sensors. All programming activities are performed via the web interface of the INFORMO IP central unit, thus avoiding direct intervention on the telephone.

Reliable system

INFORMO IP continuously checks the optimal operating status of the individual phone so as to detect any abnormalities due to malfunction or when the lone worker moves away from the radio coverage area thus remaining unprotected. The report of failure to protect is recorded in the system and sent to the emergency team (or other recipients) who can take appropriate action.

In this condition, the telephone itself, which independently verifies the lack of connection with the INFORMO IP system, also directly alerts the lone worker of the unprotected situation through an optical/acoustic signal.

False alarms are eliminated through careful management of pre-alarm steps on the phone itself that allow the worker to delay sending or reset the device before the alarm is sent.

INFORMO IP is a platform Certified by Spectralink under Spectralink’s Application Integration and Management Solutions (AIMS ) program.

Localization of lone worker in alarm phase

When an alarm condition is detected, the report sent to the recipients (e.g., emergency team) contains not only information about the type of alarm sent but also information about the location of area in which the lone worker is operating at that time.

The location is detected based on the DECT radio cell (RFP) to which the phone is currently registered. Each cell is associated with a customizable description (e.g., warehouse) to allow quick identification.

The phone itself can be programmed to emit an optical/acoustic signal at various intensities (when in alarm) to facilitate the detection of the lone worker by the rescue team intervening in the reported area.
