RFID Conveyor Safety

Automatic personnel protection for hazardous machinery

“Cyphertag® “hands free” identification tags and readers provide life-saving services in waste management sites.”

Conveyor Safety

The business challenge

Conveyor belts are commonly used in many industries. Although they enable quick and efficient transportation for a wide variety of materials, there are many hazards associated with working at or near a conveyor.

Health and Safety legislation requires employers to do everything practicable to prevent injuries, but even with the most comprehensive safety procedures in place, when people are working in hazardous environments and with hazardous machinery accidents can occur.


Our RFID solution

RFID offers a simple solution to prevent accidents and protect your people. An RFID detection and alert system sense the presence of people within a safety zone on and around a conveyor belt.

This means if a person wearing an active RFID tag enters a hazardous zone an alarm will sound and an emergency stop will be activated - even if they are unconscious, incapacitated or buried beneath material, potentially averting a serious accident. Once a person is clear of machinery the conveyor belt can restart quickly and safely.

Our Cyphertag® hardware forms the key elements systems which will disable the conveyor before a vulnerable employee is injured. Working with Safetech, a specialist conveyor system supplier, our Cyphertag® product has been implemented globally, to avoid accidental injury to staff falling on the belts, creating safer, secure areas of work for many employees in waste management around the world.

How does it work?

Our RFID solution effectiveness is based on the full performance monitoring capability, robust performance, and longevity of our Cyphertag® product.

This is being used by Safetech in their latest product Guardian Ultra, which features extensive improvements using state-of-the-art technology which meets global safety requirements - validated by an independent test house.

  • Digital technology achieves high resilience against background noise.
  • Self-monitoring assures reliability and performance.
  • Real-time data and diagnostics give immediate feedback to the operator.
  • A lighter, stronger structure can be configured to bridge any size of equipment.
  • Versatile design allows the material to pass without obstruction.

The Impact

Our touch-free RFID tag technology will prevent injury meaning people will be safer, and by recognising potential hazards ahead of their occurrence the conveying system will be kept up and running adding speed, accuracy, and efficiency as well as security to your business operations.
