Capital Safety Unitech Handheld UnitCapital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, introduces two new additions to its popular i-Safe™ 3.0 Intelligent Safety System global product line – the Unitech PA690 Handheld Unit and the MX5 USB Reader for Desktop Application. The highly advanced, automated i-Safe™ 3.0 is known for its ability to make managing a safety inspection program faster, easier and more cost-effective.

The Unitech PA690 Handheld Unit, equipped with a docking cradle, is a cost-effective alternative to the popular Psion dual reader. Unlike the Psion, the PA690 is a high frequency (HF) RFID reader that features a QWERTY keypad and a high-resolution digital camera for effective asset management.

The slim, lightweight design of the new MX5 USB Reader allows customers to read high frequency RFID tags already attached to many of Capital Safety’s current safety products. The MX5 USB Reader helps to manage inventory of safety assets efficiently and effectively.

“Many of our customers depend on the i-Safe 3.0 to streamline their product inspections and compliance activities on a day-to-day basis,” said Chris Elder, senior product manager at Capital Safety. “The technology of the Unitech Handheld model and USB Reader add a whole new level of convenience to the existing i-Safe system, which is already user-friendly because of its compatibility with Android, iPhone and iPad platforms.”

With a refresh to the product line, the state-of-the-art i-Safe™ 3.0 is the ideal system to ensure more consistent safety compliance and mitigate active and future risks, all while saving time and money. Stop by the Capital Safety booth (#O30100) to learn more.
