The Challenge

Top ABB customers asked for advanced services and faster parts replacement to keep their plants up and running, where production downtime can cost up to $2 million per minute.

The Customer
About The Customer
ABB is one of the largest engineering companies as well as one of the largest conglomerates in the world. ABB has operations in around 100 countries, with approximately 135,000 employees.
The Solution

SeeControl partners designed a wireless access control unit that operates over GSM and Mobitex wireless networks to control access to a room. This same solution is also pre-built onto industrial lockers that can be dropped-shipped anywhere globally. Via keypads and keycards, they only allow access to authorized users, or temporary users who have the correct disposable PIN number or keycard. The solution is optionally married to a barcode scanner or RFID reader so that the manager knows with certainty who has accessed and used/returned materials. A central web application controls and reports on access and also records inventory control and management activity at remote sites.
