Omron Electronics: F3SG
Safety Light Curtain Series

Investigations done by Omron show that most of required time consuming actions in the life cycle of a safety light curtain is caused by alignment and troubleshooting during operation. Therefore, Omron decided to improve these issues and designed features to reduce the required time dramatically up to 80%. The innovative Smartclick connectors of Omron are one example to reduce time required for wiring and replacement. The light curtains LEDs and the powerful configuration software, that allows logging of signal sequence in muting applications, save troublesome attempts of alignment and prevent unexpected machine stops. In case of an error, operators can use a special QRCode that links to a multilingual special website to check details quickly for trouble shooting and countermeasures.

Salto: JustIN
Mobile Key Technologie

Salto´s JustIN Mobile Key Technology allows users to use their smartphone to access doors.

The operator needs only to select from the ProAccess SPACE software to send the encrypted key securely Over The Air (OTA) to the user’s smartphone. With the JustIN Mobile Key app previously installed, the app will alert the user that a new Mobile Key has been received. The user then simply opens the app, receives a greeting including the door number to be opened, taps the key icon on the app as he presents the phone to the BLE-lock. The lock recognises the correct access credentials and opens. Innovation: Use a smartphone as credential. Not limited to a specific telecom operator or handset maker, which means flexibility for the enduser and facility, plus the facility issuing the JustIN Mobile Key can personalize the technology inside their own app if desired. JustIN Mobile Key is a complementary and potentially substitute technology to traditionally issued smartcard credentials.
