Acroprint ARES IV Watchman and Guard Tour System
This advanced lightweight yet durable tracking system ensures your personnel are making their rounds as scheduled. It's so easy — simply touch the handy M6000 recorder to the recording station "iButton" and it records the location, date, and time. Now, carrying bulky shoulder clocks, dealing with station keys and paper disks are a thing of the past.
ARES IV systems at a glance
Practical— The featherweight M6000 recorder and holster weighs in at less than six ounces. And at less than four inches long and less than two inches wide, this unit fits easily into the palm of your hand or your pocket.
Secure— Although lightweight and easy to carry, the M6000 recorder is no pushover. This tough customer is made of sturdy reinforced Lexan® polycarbonate that shrugs off rain, mud, grease and dust.
Expandable— Add as many recorders and iButtons as needed, when and where you need them. For additional convenience, an optional Portable Data Transfer Platform is available to remotely collect data from M6000 Recorders.
Accountable— Easily produce detailed guard tour reports by downloading data from the M6000 to a PC with the included download cradle and Windows-based software. A full download takes only about three minutes. And you can export the data to Microsoft Excel or other databases. The software even maintains and reports historical tour records.
The advanced ARES IV system offers all the advantages of the ARES Express, plus incident tracking. With ARES IV, your personnel can use a handy optional incident pad to record more information about conditions they encounter while completing their rounds. You can program up to 9,999 incident codes to capture detailed information about the conditions at each station.
Each M6000 recorder can hold up to 4,000 transactions. They're powered by 3 AAA alkaline batteries, with an approximate life of one year (or 500,000 transactions). They are designed to function at temperatures at between -40°F (-40°C) and +185°F (+85°C).
