With less than 50 days to go before the inaugural PLANTWORX exhibitors in the Security Village are announcing their plans for the show.

Last week the winners of the CESAR and Datatag sponsored PLANTWORX Security Innovation awards were announced. The winners, Automatrics, will be exhibiting their mtrack Proactive, a self-powered vehicle tracking device at PLANTWORX. Managing Director of Automatrics, Richard Taylor, was presented with the security award by Datatag’s Vince Wise, a former police officer. Judge Mike Revell of utility contractor Clancy Docwra said at the ceremony, “This ticks all the boxes, it’s got everything.” The other judges were equally convinced of the mtrack Proactive’s merits and made it the unanimous winner.

OnGarde, another PLANTWORX Security Village exhibitor, were given a ‘highly commended’ judges comment in the same awards for their submission. Meeting the need for security in remote locations the OnGarde Hybrid Solar Power Station is an ideal partner for powering the firm’s innovative and secure CCTV tower that employs high-tech tracking technology.

Datatag ID Limited will exhibit at PLANTWORX and on behalf of the official construction equipment security scheme, CESAR. Visitors to PLANTWORX, and the Datatag stand, will have the opportunity to win 2 VIP hospitality tickets for a round of the British Super Bike Championship, which is sponsored by Datatag.

CESAR, the world’s most successful equipment security scheme, will be much in evidence at PLANTWORX as its familiar triangular registration plate will be a common sight at the show on machines from many of the leading manufacturers. Never ones to stand still Datatag have applied even more technology to the triangular, tamper evident, registration plate in the form of a ‘quick response’ (QR) code. This will allow even quicker and more convenient security checks by the police and public alike.

The PLANTWORX Security Village will give visitors an ideal opportunity to see the range of technology that’s available today to enhance equipment security at a time when equipment theft, and export to Eastern Europe, is again on the rise. Sadly the threat of equipment theft is never far away from British construction sites but the industry has a wide choice of security technology to make life as tough as possible for professional and opportunistic thieves who prey on the ill prepared and unwary.
