Blackline Safety Loner Beacon

Blackline Safety’s Loner Beacon: a lone worker safety device enabling users to locate remote employees where GPS signals are unavailable.


Loner Beacon

Precise Indoor Location Beacon

Compatible with Blackline’s Loner safety monitoring devices, the Loner Beacon location beacons deliver precise positioning technology to locate employees indoors or, where GPS signals are unreliable or unavailable. The devices are easy-to-install, cost-effective, and intrinsically safe.

In areas where GPS location data is unavailable, Loner devices can communicate an employee’s location based on signals from nearby Loner Beacons. If an employee suffers an injury or health condition, his or her Loner safety monitoring device communicates the alert type, employee’s name, and location to monitoring personnel who manage a pin-point emergency response to the correct building, floor, and room.

Installation is easy, requiring just a few minutes to mount a bracket and click the Loner Beacon into place. Loner Beacons are self-powered by two C-cell alkaline batteries that provide five years of operation. Battery replacement is simple and cost effective.


 
 

Loner Beacon FEATURES

Low Cost of Ownership

Loner Beacons are one of the most cost effective positioning technologies on the market. Beyond the low initial purchase, there are no ongoing services fees to operate Loner Beacons.

Robust & Effective

Robust short-range signal that enables proximity detection to Blackline’s Loner safety monitoring devices. Does not require the installation care and calibration required of triangulation-based positioning technologies.

Location Beacon Signal

Broadcasts a low-power signal for proximity detection by Loner devices. When in range of an Loner Beacon, a Loner device can report its precise location.

Wireless Communications

Incorporates ANT wireless technology to ensure long battery life, robust communications, and high quality proximity detection.

Jamming Immunity

High performance communication; Short-range, tri-frequency radio communication with inference avoidance techniques.

Long Battery Life

Two C-cell alkaline batteries; Battery life: 5 years continuous operation at highest power setting.

Durable Device

Designed for industrial environments (indoors/outdoors). Designed to meet IP65 ingress protection against weather and dust.

Easy-to-install

Battery powered (no wiring required). Removable mounting bracket that can be installed nearly anywhere in just a few minutes.

"Lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision."

We understand that lone worker safety is not a ‘one size fits all' proposition - and therefore different jobs have different risk profiles that in turn impact on the best solution for that person.
