UFind Loner 900

Mobile personnel often work in uncontrolled environments that pose countless threats to worker safety. Loner remote safety monitoring solutions from Blackline GPS deliver simple, economical, and non-intrusive tools to monitor workers’ ongoing safety and manage an efficient emergency response whenever needed.


Product Description

Seamless operation between traditional cellular and global satellite networks

Loner 900 is a Class I, Division 1 intrinsically safe device that monitors a worker’s ongoing safety. When a safety incident occurs, Loner 900 communicates the alert information plus the worker’s location to monitoring personnel for management of an efficient, pin-point response.

Loner Bridge is a base station that communicates with multiple worker-worn Loner 900 safety operates through a 900 MHz radio link. Providing dual-mode satellite and cellular backhaul communications to Blackline infrastructure, Loner Bridge automatically and seamlessly use its satellite network when outside of cellular coverage. Self powered and portable, users are able to quickly move Loner Bridge from one vehicle to another, such as from an all-terrain vehicle to a work truck.
Unlike many competitive solutions, Loner 900 coupled with Loner Bridge operates inside buildings when using cellular or satellite communication.
