EKS Keys

The EUCHNER Electronic Key System (EKS) allows only authorized personnel to access machine controls and process parameters. The uniquely coded inductive key tags, can providing various levels of authorization. For example, different levels of access can be established for programming, maintenance, operation, etc. The EKS makes passwords obsolete.

The tag reader is compact, measuring only 1 " x 3". Unlike magnetic coded swipe cards that can lose data, the EKS tag does not have that vulnerability. And if a tag is lost or stolen, you can block that tag instead of reprogramming the entire system. The EUCHNER EKS is a secure solution for automatically connecting personnel into a system where access privileges need to be controlled.
