With an abundance of light and glass, exquisite materials and a discreet use of color, Endress+Hauser Conducta, a part of the Endress+Hauser Group, has created a special working atmosphere in its new production facility in Gerlingen, Germany. However, security aspects were also a critical consideration in the design of the new building.
As an international group with offices in 42 countries, Endress+Hauser has its own enterprise-wide security rules to protect the company’s products and research results from industrial espionage.
Mandatory PIN code entry outside of working hours.
The premises are divided into three security zones and protected by a DEXICON access control system. Outside of working hours, a PIN code must be entered additionally. The Legic ID cards are also used for time recording.
Video documentation as proof.
Video documentation in the logistics department will be the next milestone in Endress+Hauser Conducta’s security concept. International export regulations imposed by the German Federal Office of Civil Aviation (LBA) have been tightened due to the threat of terrorism, and cargo consignments must now regularly be checked for explosives.
Companies can only accelerate these checks if they can prove that they have implemented specific security measures. They are then referred to as “Known Consignors”. Endress+Hauser Conducta meets these requirements by documenting the packaging of air cargo consignments in its logistics center using PCS video technology.
DEXICON archives image sequences.
Video images are transferred to DEXICON via the INTUS COM interface and allocated to individual consignments. The image sequence corresponding to each piece of freight will be archived in the DEXICON software so that the safety of each consignment can be proven to the customs authorities on request.
