Long Range Systems UK offers specialised, reliable and effective communication solutions for the health & safety industry.

Good communication is essential for efficiency in modern business – and where health and safety are concerned it is critical. Since 1989 the company has been supplying the UK with staff, customer and first aid paging equipment to all industries. 

Its first aid call buttons include the Pronto & Butler XP; these call buttons allow someone to call for help immediately; the first aiders receive a message on the 4-line alpha pagers so they can respond immediately to the incident. With swipe technology, the first aider that arrives on scene can cancel the message to let others know it has been dealt with. The butler XP can also be used to contact fire marshals to attend to fire hazards.

New digital technologies offer a multitude of features that can monitor lone workers and notify others when there is a man-down situation – critical for fast emergency first aid situations. Safety features include Alarm Panel Monitoring; this connects to an alarm panel to provide instant alarm notifications. It is fully programmable for protection of the user. Lone worker monitoring integrates with 2-way radios and Long Range Systems UK's RSU1 that can be set to automatically telephone and notify off-site staff in the event of an emergency, after hours reception monitoring and more. 

The company's Ven-u Sensors are a low cost, unified solution to productively monitor equipment and processes, comply with regulations, and enhance business performance. Ven-u includes a comprehensive line of matchbox sized, wireless sensors for measuring temperature, humidity, motion, vibration, water detection, door open or close, power and others. The company says the multiplicity of sensors ensures that whatever you need to monitor, it will have a solution to meet your exact needs. 

Long Range Systems UK's new 'CaptureCall' system can collect important data from messaging with the call button system as a report and also integrate into systems for many other solutions. CaptureCall is modular and includes a stand-alone processing and interface appliance, loaded with one or many software modules. Get full details of all your pager system messages that are automatically time stamped and logged to the internal data base. Some of the features available with CaptureCall include Fire Alarm notifications, Intruder Alarm notifications, two-way paging, reporting and more.

Long Range Systems will be at the Health & Safety event, NEC Birmingham (9 to 11 April 2019). Stand G60
