RF IDeas' pcProx® Plus Readers Eliminate Manual Login on Rockwell Automation® Human-Machine Interfaces to Increase Workflow Efficiency
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
Addressing the ever-increasing demand to save time on the production
floor, RF IDeas Inc., announced today its pcProx Plus readers designed
specifically to interface with the Rockwell Automation (News - Alert) PanelViewTM
Plus human-machine interface (HMI) to automate the login process.
The leading innovator and manufacturer of authentication and in-building
identification, RF IDeas collaborated with Rockwell to optimize workflow
by partnering its pcProx Plus readers with the PanelView Plus terminals
or Logix-based controllers for operator identification.
"The Rockwell Automations Encompass™ Product Referencing program has
enabled significant opportunity for the RF IDeas product team to
collaborate and develop a reader that meets the need of the Rockwell
Automation end users," says Rick Landuyt, President of RF IDeas. "This
solution leverages existing employee badge systems and eliminates the
need to manually login on the terminals."
Throughout the day, valuable time is saved during the login process by
avoiding typing errors and re-entry by simply waving or tapping a badge
to the reader. Additionally, security configurations can be modified in
the FactoryTalk® View Machine Edition application at design-time as
well as runtime.
USB interface for connection to PanelView Plus terminals
EtherNet/IP interface for connection to Logix-based controllers
pcProx Plus readers support over 45 different proximity/contactless
Versatile mounting options: desktop or surface mount
