ADRWPE refers to automated issuance and recording of work and safety gear. Different types of smart machines are outfitted with identification systems and offer an efficient means of handling the issuance of working supplies and materials. Upon identifying the user, the machine issues the equipment and saves a record of the transaction to memory. The employer obtains a precise overview of actual consumption. Based on the analysis of the data collected, it’s easy to achieve corporate cost reductions. These machines for the issuance of personal protective equipment (PPE) for work, featuring the A3 identification system, offer detailed statistics on consumption for the items issued or other small items or tools. Personal protective equipment vending machines have the advantage, in contrast to the traditional way of issuing equipment, of providing a precise record of goods issued. They work 24 hours a day and demand no paycheck. Upon using his or her identification card, the employee is served precisely what he or she has ordered, or what the employer’s rules dictate. The machines can be equipped with a display that notifies workers they have exceeded set limits.
The integrated A3 software continuously monitors the status of the machine and in case of machine or network failure, immediately sends a notification to selected e-mail addresses. If necessary, the list of employees and cards may be synchronized with other company systems (attendance, access control, etc.). Data captured from transactions is automatically transferred to the controlling PC either via a serial link through a COM port, or over a LAN via a network connection.
Our machines work with many types of identification media. Cards already in use by the enterprise for other purposes (for attendance, the cafeteria, parking, security, etc.) or cards from other vendors may also be used. The system is compatible with contactless RFID cards and chips, magnetic cards, barcode cards and DALLAS contact chips.
