Twig Ex (ATEX)
The Twig Ex is a highly durable and intrinsically safe lone worker personal safety device, ideal for explosive hazardous areas requiring ATEX approval.
Along with two-way audio, GPS and Man Down capabilities, the device also features pre-defined buttons for voice calls and a dedicated button to raise an alarm in an emergency.
A designated button will immediately open an audio channel to the ARC.
Users connect to the system to describe location, activity and time of completion.
The device can be located by an authorised colleague or via the ARC.
A Man Down alarm can be created through immobilisation.
The Twig Ex is fully compatible with our lone worker monitoring software, Vision. This intuitive, online portal will help you monitor and review how employees interact with their Twig devices.
