Enclosed Spaces & Restricted Access In Steel Production

👷♂️ Enclosed spaces typically have very poor visibility, and knowing who has entered these spaces can be challenging. Is there a process which must be followed when entering these locations? What if an operator doesn’t know the process? Well… that’s where you might need a permission based RFID based access control system. The RFID access control system from Fortress is designed around the right person performing the right task.
📛 With a permission based RFID system, access permission can be assigned to specific users at specific times meaning that the safeguarded space can only be accessed by who you want, when you want. Learn more about this solution here!
📋 This level of control not only improves process control, but can enable key insights into who is entering safeguarded or enclosed spaces, when they are entering and how long a process was in downtime. Data can be easily configurable on its own web-based dashboard and exported for analytics. When equipped with this new array of data, minimising downtime becomes a simple, well informed process as frequent causes of slow maintenance can be highlighted with ease.
🔌 RFID access sits as a feature alongside safe and non-safe control I/O in any EtherNet/IP or PROFINET enabled Fortress device saving on cabinetry or panel real estate, greatly reducing costs for both cabling, hardware and installation.
✅ This flexibility allows systems to be fully scalable (starting from a single unit), interface with external devices (eg. a gas detector), fulfil the highest level of safety requirements up to PLe, include emergency egress functions and include a full trapped key system too.
