Mobile phone guards access to industrial equipment

Mobile World Congress 2011: baimos technologies presents BlueID Rail Module - the simple and secure identification solution

Barcelona, Spain / Garching near Munich, (PresseBox) - In industrial environments we authenticate ourselves many times a day. That can happen in several ways and with different kinds of proof of identity. An ID card grants us permission to enter company premises, a key or PIN permits us to operate machines and to pass security doors.

These kinds of proof of identity rely on technologies which have existed for many decades: keys, photos, printed paper, chip cards or the knowledge of a secret, personal identification number (PIN).

All technologies have in common that they require production and physical distribution of items. After a defined period of time, the permission becomes obsolete, has to be taken back and a new item must be issued.

BlueID Rail Module and the BlueID technology unite all kinds of permissions in one place: the mobile phone. That simplifies the management of access permissions considerably. BlueID is compatible with almost any modern smartphone, as well as with many feature phones.

BlueID Rail Module matches many kinds of use cases. A company can send access permissions digitally to the mobile phones of employees. In turn, their mobile phones enable them to open security gates and doors or grant them access to machines. Optionally, functions can be triggered with NFC by approximation of the mobile phone to an RFID tag.

BlueID Rail Module is mounted onto an M36 DIN rail (EN 50022) in switching cabinets or machines. By connecting BlueID Rail Module to the Internet, triggering of commands is also possible via mobile Internet connection (GSM/UMTS). In this case the range of the module is worldwide.

Transmission of access permissions is RSA/AES encrypted at all times. Access clearance for machines, automatic units, safety ports and doors is executed for example by switching a potential-free relay.

Management of access permissions is carried out quickly and easily through the BlueID Ticket Manager web interface. The advantage is evident: Access permissions - so-called BlueID Tickets - are created digitally in a high-security data center and transmitted to the mobile phone via a GSM/UMTS connection. Issuance of a BlueID Ticket costs between 0.29 euro for a day ticket and 9.99 euro for a five-year ticket, depending on duration of validity.

Digitalization means that access permissions can be issued, distributed and revoked electronically and wirelessly at any time, saving on production costs for physical carrier media and handling costs for delivering and taking back access permissions. Furthermore, permissions in form of BlueID Tickets are always stored in the high-security data center and can be retrieved when necessary.

Additionally to granting access via up to four relays per each BlueID Rail Module, on request the module can be connected to other devices through a multitude of interfaces. Ethernet (RJ45), USB, RS232 and RS485 are supported.

BlueID Rail Module is developed and manufactured in cooperation with Marquardt. The Marquardt Group is a worldwide leader in the production of electromechanical and electronic switches and switching boards for vehicles, power tools, household appliances and industrial fields of application.
