How many times have you been down on the facility floor and seen HMI login details written on sticky notes? The growing demand for security and traceability calls for access to HMI’s and other machines or systems which can be regulated and documented. RFID-based (Radio frequency identification) access management increases security while enhancing productivity and efficiency by preventing issues which could be caused by unauthorized access. With the new SIMATIC RF1070R reader, we provide an RFID-based solution that enables simple and flexible implementation of badge management for HMI panels and other machines or systems. Existing employee ID information provides the basis for identification, which increases user friendliness and minimizes costs. And all of this is capable with simple ID badges.
