PROOF POSITIVE® SPAN CABLE
Proof Positive· Span Cable is a traceable, theft-deterrent span cable that provides ag dealers and farmers with proof of ownership of their cable:
An ag dealer places an o rder for a reel of Proof Positive® Span Cable with Paige Electric. The order is processed and Southwire manufactures the cable.
During the manufacturing process, the license code, a serial number unique to every foot, and website URL are printed on a marker tape that is included with the cable assembly.
When the reel is ready to ship from Paige to the purchaser, the license code, serial numbers, and purchasing information are stored in Southwire’s proprietary database (located online at www.2I DCU.com) to identify the rightful owner of each foot of cable sold. The ag dealer repeats this process when he re-sells any length to a farmer
so the cha in of ownership is complete.
The farmer receives and installs Proof Positive® as they would any standard span cable.
If the cable is later stolen from a pivot, it will likely turn up at a recycler. The recycler, who is familiar with
Proof Positive®, instantly recognizes the outer jacket, locates’the marker tape and enters the license code
and serial number into www.2IDCU.com to find out the rightful owner. Many states have laws or
regulations prohibiting recyclers from purchasing burned wire – so this would immediately raise suspicion if the outer jacket was missing.
The cable is confirmed not to be the property of the person attempting to recycle it – law enforcement
is notified, the thief is prosecuted, and o ne more criminal is removed from the streets.
