Increase operational security with this key manager system

The new SmartKey+ key-management system provides additional security for managing safety interlock keys. The SmartKey+ protects against unauthorized or inadvertent operation of interlocked valves or process equipment, with the added ability to record movements of the keys required to operate mechanical interlocks in real time. The system encloses all keys in a cabinet. To access this key cabinet, users must identify themselves with a code for authorization. The user then selects the appropriate key from the panel and removes the key as the selected key position is unlocked. To return a key to the cabinet, the user scans the key with the integrated scanner and the corresponding key position is highlighted on the front display for re-insertion. Full transaction history is available, revealing details of key insertion and removal. Capable of managing more than 275 keys, the unit is designed to support a remote web interface. — Smith Flow Control Ltd., Witham, U.K.
