HID Global Enhances the Overall Security for the Largest Transformer Manufacturer in China

News Highlights: • VertX networked access control and iCLASS contactless readers provide centralized management and advanced access level settings for Shenyang Transformer Group • The web-based access control system works with plant’s existing credentials and TCP/IP network investment. • Solution achieves cost savings by enabling additional deployments (time and attendance, remote area control and visitor management).

IRVINE, Calif., January 17, 2013 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, announced that its network access control solutions and contactless readers have been selected by Shenyang Transformer Group Co., Ltd. (Shenyang TBEA) in China to enable access level settings and area control to prevent unauthorized entry. The solution fully leverages Shenyang TBEA’s existing TCP/IP network investment to deliver a centralized, web-based access control system that provides central monitoring, report generation, the ability to establish staff access level settings and visitor management. The new system is interoperable with the plant’s existing credentials and seamlessly integrates with a wide range of hardware and management software for additional deployments. Featuring dispersed entry points over a 720,000 square meters industrial park, Shenyang TBEA deployed HID Global’s VertX® V1000 network controllers, VertX® V100 door/reader interfaces, iCLASS® R10 readers and iCLASS® R30 contactless smart card readers to safeguard the plant’s integrated factory, R&D building, administrative offices, elevators, mixed working areas and key equipment rooms.

“After our extensive assessment, we selected HID Global and its physical access control solutions for their leading technology and comprehensive product functionality. We had an experience where some HID Global controllers were accidentally submerged under water and the products still functioned properly without any defects, validating HID Global’s robust product design and quality,” said Mr. Yu Liuyi, project manager with Shenyang TBEA. “As a global leader in secure identity solutions, HID Global offers a lifetime warranty to their customers, which eliminates our concern regarding post-sales service and support.”

The new system achieves significant cost savings by enabling additional deployments such as time and attendance, remote area control and visitor management while supporting the factory’s existing MIFARE® credentials. Additionally, the solution can seamlessly integrate with multiple sub-systems such as surveillance and fire control systems for area control and safety management.
