The EKS is an electronic key reader for tracking access. It is perfect for industrial use, as it has a sturdy structure and an IP67 protection rating. The electronic keys are programmed using dedicated software and are fitted with a device which contains a memory chip and transponder. These operate without batteries. The advantages offered by this device are the same as those for an RFID badge reader, with the further option of automatically controlling logout, when the electronic key is removed from the reader. The device features an Ethernet interface for connection to the control PC on which the Modula WMS is installed.
