Security experts Datatag ID will exhibit the industry’s official anti-theft and recovery system for large construction and agricultural equipment.

The CESAR Scheme is powered by Datatag ID and owned by the Agricultural Engineers Association and the Construction Equipment Association. Major manufacturers whao have adopted it as standard include New Holland, John Deere, JCB and Massey Ferguson.

Made up of state of the art Datatag technologies, CESAR has to date protected over 200,000 items of equipment in the UK and has proven its powers by helping to reduce equipment theft by over 70% since it was introduced in 2007.

In addition, the Plant and Agriculture National Intelligence Unit (PANIU) has been able to recover millions of pounds worth of stolen machinery in this time thanks to the security marking technologies within the CESAR System.

These successes have led to the CESAR Scheme being cited as a major factor in the fight against plant theft. Major UK insurers recognise the benefits of the scheme to their customer – so much so that they offer discounts of up to 25% for CESAR marked equipment.

Micro-CESAR system

Also to be showcased on The CESAR stand will be the newly launched Micro-CESAR system. Like the official CESAR scheme, it is made up of state of the art Datatag technology including warning/registration labels, RFID tags, Datadots and forensic DNA.

This latest innovation has been launched to protect small tools such as power tools, cut off saws, hand held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates and is set to make a similar impact in the fight against crime as the CESAR Scheme.

An added bonus to this innovative new system is the stock management, helping track tools in and out of jobs and access on-line health and safety advice and user manuals through the unique QR code and mobile enable micro-CESAR website.
