On a construction or an industrial site, maintenance operations need to interrupt several flows potentially hazardous (fluids, power supply ...), and thus to disable several equipments such as valves, electric boards... In practice chains and padlocks are positioned on these equipments by maintenance or security personnel. In this case it is not possible for a supervisor to know for sure and at any time the lock status of the range of equipments supposed to be disabled.
Instead of proceeding to additional rounds to control the lock status of a range of equipments supposed to be disabled, we developed a wireless padlock able to transmit in real time it lock status to a central monitoring system. Therefore a supervisor is able to check at any time the right lock status of a range of equipments needed to be disabled before launching any maintenance operation safely.
