Manufacturing commonly requires operator identification for automation, data collection, quality control and job costing. Traditional magnetic stripe & barcode systems can be easily adapted to utilize existing employee proximity or contactless smartcard ID badges.

It’s become standard practice for companies to analyze their manufacturing processes on a continual basis to aid in maximizing their overall operational efficiency. These procedures can be turned from problematic and error-prone tasks to straightforward and trouble-free with the simple implementation of a proximity or contactless reader.

Through the use of such readers from rf IDEAS, companies have the potential to improve, control and secure operations while also gaining a competitive advantage. With all these features and benefits, these technologies have become a necessity for today's industry and logistics applications.

Solve Workstation Security Risks - Unattended computers & workstations are a common workplace security risk. The WAVE ID Sonar presence detector provides auto-locking features that detect when users physically step away. Upon an employee's return, a secure log-on is used to regain access. This process enforces company security policies without a disruption in workflow, loss in time or profit.
