The organisation, through its work with the CESAR Scheme, recognised the fuel theft issue and developed a smart tech solution called VENOM, described as a formulation of a unique forensic DNA and visible green dye. VENOM, which is mixable with petrol, diesel and HVO fuels, can provide companies with an individual DNA identifier.
Datatag will also be showcasing its KIST asset management solution. Developed using MicroCESAR as an equipment identifier, KIST allows companies to keep track of and manage equipment and vehicles via mobile and desktop applications.
The official CESAR Scheme and the Emissions Compliance Verification (ECV) advancement to help police air quality within construction will also feature on the stand. ECV takes the machine’s engine emission standard from the engine’s EU-type approval number and displays it on a colour coded plate. It provides a reference point where machines are working on sites where they are required to comply with Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) emission regulations.
JCB and Hitachi were among the first manufacturers to fit the CESAR ECV scheme as standard. It has now been adopted by over 93% of OEMs and leading machine dealers in the construction sector.
Executive Hire Show takes place on February 8 and 9 at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
