Mesh Access Point (MAP)

Proprietary wireless access point

The Mesh Access Point is a proprietary wireless access point developed specifically for use with USM’s Personal Safety Monitoring System (PSMS).  The access point is based on Mesh Networking technology, enabling the provision of a multi-device access point mesh network topology.

The MAP can be rapidly deployed into most industrial environments, giving organisations the ability to extend the range of their Personal Safety Monitoring (PSM) devices.  The PSM is designed to make use of our multilateration technology, ensuring accurate location sensing and transmission of worker safety metrics in real-time.

These devices are available in Intrinsically Safe MAP (IS Map), Satellite MAP (SatMAP) and regular MAP models/variations.
