Active Presence Reader For Machine Control

Active Prensence ReaderThere is a rapidly growing emphasis on workplace safety being driven by regulatory bodies such as OSHA in the USA and the Canada Labour Code. In addition, the introduction of Bill C-45 in Canada established new legal duties for workplace health and safety, and imposes serious penalties for violations that result in injuries or death. Clearly, hanging a sign on a piece of dangerous shop floor equipment which says “To be used by authorized personnel only” is not adequate. Fortunately, the Active Presence Reader (APR) solves this problem by confirming the continued presence of an individual’s access card at the reader. By simply sliding the card into the reader clip, the APR will trigger a built-in relay after being validated by ANY connected access control panel. Removing the card immediately disables the controlled machine.
