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. Every Endress+Hauser Product Center is subject to these guidelines, including the new Endress+Hauser Conducta head office erected in 2008 at Gerlingen near Stuttgart.
The solution and its benefits
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 cards are also used for time&attendance.
The next milestone in Endress+Hauser Conducta’s security concept will be the implementation of video documentation in the logistics department. 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 be regularly checked for explosives. Companies can only accelerate these checks if they have themselves registered and prove that they have implemented specific security measures. They are then referred to as “Known Consignors”. Endress+Hauser Conducta will meet these requirements by documenting the packaging of air cargo consignments in its logistics center using PCS video technology. The video images are transferred to DEXICON via the INTUS COM interface and allocated to the individual consignments. The image sequence corresponding to each piece of freight can be archived in the DEXICON software so that the safety of each consignment can be proven to the customs authorities on request.
