IPAF’s machine-readable Smart PAL Card

IPAF’s machine-readable Smart PAL Card has won the Plantworx Innovation Award in the Safety category for its use of smartcard technology to help improve site safety.

The Smart PAL Card can be used together with card readers fitted on machines which may be set to ensure that only correctly trained operators use equipment on site.

Under the Plantworx Innovation Awards organised by the UK-based Construction Equipment Association (CEA), the Smart PAL Card also won a Silver award in the Elite category and was Highly Commended in the Security category.

This is the second accolade for IPAF’s Smart PAL Card, which won a LLEAP award 2014 in the category Aftermarket Support Products & Services.

At the Plantworx exhibition from 2 to 4 June at the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire, UK, IPAF will be demonstrating how the Smart PAL Card can be used to help prevent unauthorised use of machines. Visit IPAF in the indoor pavilion, block B, stand 4.
