Safety Innitiatives


With the iDig system, you can manage distances, depths and desired slopes.

The combination of advanced technologies is unique in the world: no cables, radio communication, simplified installation and solar charging. The user interface has been designed with excavator operators and can be appreciated by all.

The bargraph and LED display guides you in the same field of vision as your bucket and makes the iDig an ideal daily tool for you.

Remotely Operated Cut-off System (ROCS)

The ROCS System has been designed to provide remotely operated emergency stopping of an excavator from a range of up to 100 metres away. It does this wirelessly and it does it instantly.

Here is an example of the datasheet for ROCS

360 Cameras

Our innovative system utilises four 195° wide angle cameras, secured to each side of the machine. The images are continually processed and digitally
‘stitched’ together to provide a seamless 360° ‘Birds Eye View’ on the LCD monitor installed in the cab. This ensures the operator can see hazards all around the machine, to eliminate the blind spots, resulting in a safe working environment and provide site compliance.

By using equipment that exceeds any other

specification on the market, we are able to offer you the very best system, installed to an ultra-high standard.

i-am Card Reader System

The i-am promotes health and safety on construction sites in the United Kingdom by putting the control of plant equipment and plant vehicles safely in the hands of the site manager. It prevents just anybody using equipment, by only allowing a piece of machinery to only be turned on by an activated key card.
From providing access control for plant to construction plant safety, you can be confident knowing that i-am is designed specifically to meet the needs of the construction industry.
