FAQs

How does SiteZone work?

SiteZone generates an RF field (or bubble) around the vehicle. If the bubble is breached by a transponder wearing pedestrian then SiteZone generates appropriate alarms warning both the vehicle operator and pedestrian. This warning gives time for all parties to take necessary evasive actions. Multiple and concurrent breaches are recognised and all alarm events are data logged.


Are the tags serviceable?

All tags are tamperproof with no user serviceable parts. Service is on return to factory only. The long battery life and rugged construction provides reliable operation and removes the need for frequent service and repair of the transponder.


Where can it be used?

SiteZone is recommended for use wherever there is a safety issue and incident potential between personnel and vehicles. This includes, but is not limited to:

Construction sites, aggregate sites, quarries, waste management sites, landfill sites, warehouses, scrap yards, ports, docksides etc.


Can I "tag" static objects?

The simple answer is Yes!

If there is an identified onsite collision hazard then the application of a tag can give due warning to all SiteZone compliant machinery.


Am I limited to the number of tags that can be used on any one site?

The simple answer is No!

There is no limit to the number of tags that can be applied onsite. Each tag has its own unique identifier (which can be customised to suit the user) meaning that all alarm events that occur are uniquely identified and offers traceability to the personnel involved.

The tags are portable such that they will alarm any SiteZone system giving them the ability to be used on any site – an important feature for contractors working on large projects or quarrying / waste companies with many sites.

How do I know my personnel transponder is working?

  1. Transponders can be tested by approaching a vehicle which has SiteZone system installed and confirming the alarm activates when the zone perimeter is breached. If using this method it is important the power to the machine is on but it can be approached safely e.g. deadmans handle engaged or handbrake on in neutral gear (static control)
  2. Transponders can be tested by using an office based transponder test unit. This requires passing the tag in front of the “reader” which verifies the transponder integrity prior to its daily use.


What machines can use SiteZone?

SiteZone can be used with all types of construction plant and handling vehicles including, but not limited to: Excavator, wheeled loader, dozer, compactor, material handler, telehandler, forklift, dumper, truck, ATV, backhoe etc. If you are unsure of your vehicle application please contact us.


Can I "tag" a vehicle?

The simple answer is Yes!

If there is a need for vehicle detection then a tag can be fitted to the vehicle(s) in question. This reduces the possibility of “vehicle – vehicle” collisions and also makes it easier for smaller onsite vehicles (ATV, pickups etc) to be detected by the much larger onsite vehicles which usually have limited visibility.

Can SiteZone be used to create exclusion areas on sites?
