Each thing you want to be able to locate (staff or
equipment) gets a Tracer tag. This tag must be
outside any covering or clothing. There are sensors
placed in the ceiling in the areas of the facility
that will be using the system. When the sensor
"sees" a tag it records its location real-time, in
the Tracer's database. Then equipment or personnel
can be located real-time to their location or last
known location from a Asset Tracking workstation or
the Responder® IV Touchscreen Console.
Does the extended wear of the Tracer Tag pose a
potential cancer risk?
No, the Tracer Tag poses NO cancer risk.
Little if any of the signal penetrates clothing.
People are exposed to more IR energy from the sun or
florescent lights on a daily basis, than from the
Does exposure to IR transmissions pose a hazard to the
No, the Tracer Tag poses no hazard to the eye.
IR of sufficient intensity can harm the eye. To
ensure that our product did NOT pose a risk, a
sample was submitted to the National Institute for
Occupational Safety (NIOSH). NIOSH made measurements
and performed calculations proving that the tag
poses NO hazard to the eye.
How do high efficiency fluorescent lights effect Tracer?
All fluorescent lights use a "ballast" to modulate
the transmission of light from the tube. Newer "high
efficiency" fixtures use a much higher modulation
frequency than older fixtures. There is NO
interference caused from these "high efficiency"
lights on Tracer.
