Motion Relocation Detector
A motion detector is now a standard, permanent device in all new CITIZEN machines to ensure that any relocation of the machine is consistent with export laws.
It is Marubeni Citizen-Cincom’s policy to comply with all aspects of U.S. laws and regulations relative to U.S. export controls, and in particular with the Commerce Department’s Export Administration Regulations, the State Department’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and the Treasury Department’s various sanctions regulations.
Likewise, Japan has similar export control laws, therefore Citizen Machinery began equipping their machines with a Motion Relocation Detector (MRD).
First introduced on CINCOM in the Asian market in 2001, the MRD proved to be successful in the execution of the security trade control system. Therefore, in April 2007 this system became a standard feature on all new CITIZEN’s whether they are shipped overseas or not.
A password is required during initial installation to start-up the machine as well as each time the machine is moved. Upon repositioning or relocation of the machine an alarm will sound and the machine will shut down. A new password is then required to re-activate the machine. The process is simple — just contact Marubeni Citizen-Cincom prior to moving your machine to verify the location and ensure it is in compliance with export regulations. You will then receive a new password to initiate the start-up at no additional cost to you.
