S3 ID deliver Location Awareness: We gather location data using specialised equipment

  • S3 ID specialise in personnel and asset tracking using Tags and Readers suitable for use in harsh and hazardous environments
  • We have developed ATEX and IECEx certified equipment that can operate in potentially explosive atmospheres up to and including Zone 0 categories
  • Our equipment is designed for extreme environments such as high salinity, hydrogen sulphide (H2S), water ingress protection and high/low ambient temperatures
  • We have several types of Tags and Readers that can be configured for most applications including, refineries, offshore installations & process sites


Our solutions are time-proven in operation worldwide with many blue chip clients.

The key to all our solutions is gaining positive ‘locational awareness’ of personnel and assets. To obtain this we allocate a unique ID tag to each individual working on an installation.

Tags come in various forms; RFID (passive or active), UHF (Checkpoint) or Ultra Wide Band technologies. These tags are then monitored by appropriate Readers (sensors) which report back to a central system to provide ‘positive location awareness’ of each individual or even, where required, ‘track’ their movements in real-time for safety purposes.

As well as being used to know where your personnel are, for example to control the maximum Personnel On Site on an installation, Tags can also be used for rapid electronic mustering, access control and security purposes. Tags can even be used to control permits to work and electronically validate ‘permissions’ allowing only authorised personnel to use specific control systems by automatically granting (or denying) them access subject to their status on the central database. Even time and attendance at a given location can be recorded if required. Beyond these more common uses, knowing the location and disposition of all personnel in a crisis can also enable pro-active management of the situation (crisis management).
