HID Global put out a statement on Thursday (January 17, 2013) announcing that China's largest power transformer manufacturer, Shenyang Transformer Group Co., Ltd (Shenyang TBEA), uses its solutions "to enable access level settings and area control to prevent unauthorised entry" to its offices and facilities, including operational sites across a 720,000-square metre industrial park.
"The solution fully leverages Shenyang TBEA's existing TCP/IP network investment to deliver a centralised, web-based access control system that provides central monitoring, report generation, the ability to establish staff access level settings and visitor management," the HID Global statement said. "The new system is interoperable with the plant's existing credentials and seamlessly integrates with a wide range of hardware and management software for additional deployments."
The solutions Shenyang TBEA is currently using are HID Global's VertX V1000 network controllers, VertX V100 door/reader interfaces, iCLASS R10 readers and iCLASS R30 contactless smart card readers. These have been deployed to secure access to Shenyang TBEA's integrated factory, R&D building, administrative offices, elevators, mixed working areas and key equipment rooms at its industrial park.
According to HID Global's Thursday statement to the press, "the new system achieves significant cost savings by enabling additional deployments such as time and attendance, remote area control and visitor management."
