Micro-CESAR, Datatag’s latest security system, is set to make a huge impact in the fight against small tool theft following in the footsteps of the Official CESAR System which uses an array of Datatag security marking technology.

Backed by the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) Micro-CESAR was first announced at the 8th Combined Industries Theft Solutions (CITS) Conference at the end of 2015. It has already been evaluated by a number of leading manufacturers of small power tools and is set to be adopted shortly.

Like the Official CESAR Scheme, Micro-CESAR uses Datatag security marking technology including a unique RFID tag and a tamper evident warning label with an integrated QR code. Micro-CESAR and CESAR are designed to permanently mark assets with a unique identity thereby acting as both a deterrent against theft and as an invaluable aid in recovery. CESAR, launched in 2007, has contributed to a 70%+ reduction in the theft of large construction and agricultural equipment and Micro-CESAR is poised to make a similar impact protecting small construction power tools and landscaping equipment such as cut-off saws, hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.

As an added bonus the technology used in the Micro-CESAR system can also be used as a stock management tool helping companies track tools in and out of jobs and allowing users to easily access on-line health and safety advice and user manuals through the unique QR code and mobile enabled Micro-CESAR website.

Micro-CESAR is set to go officially live in September when STIHL, the leading supplier of cut-off saws, chainsaws, brush cutters, hedge trimmers, blowers, sweepers, pressure washers, vacuum cleaners and other construction equipment, will adopt the system.

Hire Association Europe (HAE) will also be hosting their annual conference on the 21st & 22nd September and further news about Micro-CESAR will be announced by Datatag’s Strategic Alliance Manager Dave Luscombe, who will be presenting to the many hire industry representatives set to attend the two day conference in Loughborough.
