The SCAN~LINK Passive RFID Armour System™ utilizes RFID to alert the driver of a reversing vehicle that a ground worker is behind them and extra caution is required. It has been designed to reduce the probability of a struck-by accident by increasing the probability that tagged personnel working in close proximity to mobile equipment will be detected.


Ground workers wearing an Armour equipped Safety Vest and Hard Hat can be detected via the Passive RFID tags discretely installed in the apparel. What makes the Armour System unique is that any vehicle equipped with an Armour Antenna can detect any ground worker, on any job site if they are wearing an Armour equipped Safety Vest and/or Hard hat. The Antenna also records and stores valuable usage data such as the time, date and apparel ID of every detection event.


The SCAN~LINK Passive RFID Armour System™ consists of an Antenna, Display, External Alarm and Bracket and is designed to work with optional components and the SCAN~LINK Apparel.
