Triax Introduces Simplified IoT Solution with Preventative Safety and Productivity Tools

Triax Technologies expands its wearable technology portfolio to meet various organizational safety, operational needs, and COVID mitigation requirements across industries.

FREMONT, CA: Triax Technologies introduces Spot-r Radius, a simplified Internet of Things solution designed to help keep workers safe and work sites productive in industries such as oil and gas, mining, recycling, and water treatment. The wearable solution complements the Spot-r product line. It is ideal for businesses to begin their digital transformation journeys without complex or real-time data. The new solution incorporates Triax’s Proximity Trace* technology, which enables device-to-device connectivity and has been used to keep workers safe at over 275 work sites during the COVID-19 pandemic through social distancing and contact tracing.

Spot-r Radius is a self-deploying and lightweight wearable technology that provides critical worker-to-worker, worker-to-location, and worker-to-equipment intelligence to provide actionable insights into daily operations. Along with real-time safety alerts that notify workers before entering hazardous areas or no-go zones, Spot-r Radius automates headcount and hours for daily reporting and labor billing verification; tracks equipment utilization; identifies bottlenecks causing inefficiencies on-site as needed and supports social distancing and digital contact tracing. Its analytics reports, which are automatically uploaded to the cloud at the end of each day, assist organizations in increasing sitewide efficiency and tracking key performance indicators for workforce behavior and risk.

“The insight we gained about our customers’ digital needs during the pandemic helped shape the development of Spot-r Radius and the expansion of our product line,” says Robert Costantini, Triax Technologies CEO. “Spot-r Radius is ideal for companies that are at the early stages of their digital transformation journeys and dont have complex or real-time data requirements. While data is critical to gaining insights, too much of it initially can make analysis difficult. By collecting just what companies need when they start out headcount, equipment usage data, and more Spot-r Radius helps companies identify ways to operate more safely and efficiently while enabling proactive safety measures through its real-time alerting capabilities.”

Rose Hall, Head of Construction Innovation for AXA XL, includes, “Triax as a technology partner in its Construction Ecosystem, Construction job sites are busy, risky workplaces. Spot-r Radius can help contractors gain peace of mind by giving workers added awareness into their surroundings on the job site and helping to keep workers at safe distances. Having this real-time feedback can minimize potential safety risks.”

Spot-r Radius complements Triax's existing IoT solutions, which include its flagship Spot-r network solution, “now known as Spot-r Mesh,” which is a comprehensive safety, productivity, and workforce management platform for complex worksite environments with real-time location and data requirements; and Spot-r Access, a simplified approach to assisting organizations in controlling site entry and exit for safety and security.

Spot-r Radius leverages the company's real-time proximity alerting technology developed for Proximity Trace, extending the Spot-r suite of products with new worker-facing, safety alerting capabilities. To date, over 100 organizations across North America that have implemented Proximity Trace have seen an average reduction of 50 percent in close contact interactions between workers in as little as two weeks of use.

Spot-r Radius is well-suited for use in all industrial work environments, including construction, energy, food processing, manufacturing, and mining, as well as other industries looking to digitize their work environments while facilitating their return-to-work strategies. A version of the intrinsically safe product enables it to operate reliably in highly hazardous work environments. In addition, spot-r Radius is simple to deploy and use, with a small network and power consumption.
