This update provides more options for end users, designersand OEMs to integrate the FC6A Plus with many types of I/O systems and intelligent automation devices. The FC6A Plus is already expandable to support up to 2,060 I/O, making it ideal for controlling machines or small- scale manufacturing operations. With the addition of industry-standard EtherNet/IP scanner capabili- ties, the FC6A Plus can now connect with, monitor and control any I/O, variable speed drive, motor controls, or other intelligent automation device using this popular industrial protocol. In addition, the FC6A Plus can be configured as an EtherNet/ IP adapter, allowing it to interact with other peer and supervisory systems, such as PLCs and HMIs.
Updates to Touch Reader and App
ProdataKey (PDK) has announced several updates to its “touch” Bluetooth reader and mobile app that further distinguish the pdk io solution as the most convenient, seamless, access control experience on the market. Unlike other mobile access control solutions, which require users to unlock and pres- ent their phone in place of a fob, PDK’s touch read- er automatically senses encrypted credentials on locked phones carried by users, even when they’re deep inside pockets, bags and purses. The read- er’s new “touch-free” feature, designed to support COVID-19 best-practices for workplace safety, al- lows credentialed users to simply wave their hand within 2-3 inches of the reader in order to indicate an intent to enter. The result is a touch-free, hassle- free “walk-through” experience.
