Micro CESAR Security System

Tech Overview: TE ID Labels | RFID Transponder

Identification of stolen construction plant has now been made easier with Micro CESAR.

Theft of handheld power tools is an enormous issue for the construction industry worldwide and one which costs businesses many times more than the loss of the tool.

Following the success of the official construction and agricultural equipment security and registration scheme, CESAR, the latest system protects smaller items with the same state of the art Datatag security marking technologies.

To combat theft and aid recovery MicroCESAR combines both overt and covert deterrents alongside a low one off cost and registration on a secure and accredited 24/7 police accessible database.

Micro CESAR Technology


CESAR is made up of state of the art Datatag technologies including the now iconic triangular tamper evident ID plates, Datatadots®, RFID Transponders and forensic Datatag DNA with UV trace. Once a machine is fitted with CESAR it is practically impossible to hide its true identity and in the unlikely event of a theft the police have 24/7 access to the database through the secure contact centre which enables them to positively identify the stolen machine and recover it back to its rightful owner.
This uniquely numbered tamper evident ID label gives each piece of equipment it's own unique identity. Datatag will take legal action against any copying or unauthorised production of these unique ID plates that contain Datatag's world wide registered trademark.
No, these unique electronic transponders contain no 'working' parts and therefore neither wear out or need servicing. They are powered by, or "wake up", only when interrogated by the special Datatag scanners provided to the Police.
Since 1992, Datatag has distributed thousands of their scanners free of charge to all UK Police Forces including some in Europe to help combat crime and identify stolen property.
