In every company there are areas that need protection from unwanted access. However, protecting the human from the machine is not enough; we should also protect the machine from the human. Consequently, machinery safety and industrial security must be considered in equal measure.
With the operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion, the modular safety gate system, the small controllers PNOZmulti 2 and the SecurityBridge firewall, we offer a solution that not only takes the machinery safety requirements into account, but also defines permissions for service engineers as well as other persons and roles. That way, your staff are protected from any hazards the machine may present, and your machine is protected from operator errors and tampering.
The operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion authenticates people based on the data on a cryptographically protected RFID key and authorises these people to perform certain actions based on the stored permissions. Nobody can open the safety gate, which is protected via a gate lock, until the reader unit registers the correct permission. The SecurityBridge firewall protects access via the network. It monitors communication with the controller, in this case the small controllers PNOZmulti 2, and guarantees that on-site operation cannot be influenced by unauthorised access via the network.
That way we offer you a coherent machine access concept, which not only takes machinery safety into account, but also industrial security.
