motionSCOUT
[ Next Generation Stand-alone Personal Alert Safety System ]

MSA announces the next generation of stand-alone personal alert safety systems called motionSCOUT. It detects the cessation of bodily movement and activates an automatic alarm. For enhanced safety the alarm can be activated manually as well.

With highly visible LEDs and an alarm volume of at least 95 dB it helps to locate the person in danger. The sensitive, electronic motion sensor recognises all normal body movements. A bi-colour LED clearly shows the readiness of the unit, green proving the functionality and red for low battery indication.

motionSCOUT is simple to use and intuitive. It is maintenance-free, only needing to replace the standard and cost effective AA batteries when required. The operating time is extremely high being >200 hours, same as the alarm time of 8 hours continuous sound.

The motionSCOUT design is compact, robust and watertight [IP67] and is built to withstand the toughest applications. It is not just highly suitable for Fire and Rescue operations, but also urban search and rescue, tunnel surveying and many more industrial applications. In general, motionSCOUT is highly valueable wherever a person works alone, for example, tank cleaning, in high rack warehouses or in silos.

motionSCOUT can be easily affixed to the shoulder strap or hip belt. An easy-to-use key version [switch ON by pulling out the key], a version with manual alarm reset function, as well as an optional temperature sensor are available.
