Identification keypad adds new level of security for construction equipment operators

The ECS from Curtis, with compatible RFID tags

Curtis has announced the launch of its new Electronic Code Switch (ECS) – an operator identification keypad that adds an additional layer of security for construction equipment.

To access machines, operators can identify themselves using a personal pin code, compatible RFID tags or a combination of the two.

The module, which provides both audio and visual feedback for the user, can be integrated into machines with or without a CAN bus.

The manufacturer says the module, which is compatible with any system, is built to operate in demanding conditions and is CE compliant.
