Anti-theft and safety locks for trucks and heavy equipment

Winchester, Va.—The Equipment Lock Co. (TELC), a company that manufactures and sells anti-theft and safety locking devices for all types of trucks and heavy equipment, will now offer customers DataDot Identification Technology.

TELC is partnering with DataDot Technology USA to offer DataDot Identification Technology to the utility, construction, container and various related markets. This technology was first used in the automotive industry, but applies to anyone who wants to protect their personal items, tools or equipment.

DataDots are tiny discs encoded with unique information that provides a means of identifying equipment, hand tools, power tools, parts and supplies (including copper). DataDots may be applied with a pressurized can (to propel the high‐adhesive glue); or they may be brushed on directly from the tub. The customer’s company information is encoded on each dot, which is smaller than the head of a pin. The dots are pressure washer and high heat resistant. Once applied to a covert location, they dry in just a few hours and can be easily found using a black light that makes the UV trace in the adhesive glow. A thirty power magnifier then allows you to read the company information encoded on the DataDots. The customer’s company information is stored in the secure DataDotDNA Database to assist in recovery efforts of stolen assets.
