SmartKey+ Securely Manages Safety Interlock Keys in Real Time

SmartKey+ is an extension of Smith Flow Control’s Key Management Systems. Key cabinets provide a safe and visual way of storing interlock system ‘initiating’ keys. SmartKey+ has been developed to provide all the features of SFC’s Visual Alert Key Cabinet, along with the ability to record movements of keys in realtime, providing complete accuracy.

SmartKey+ uses RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology which allows a key to be tracked with complete confidence, providing operator and control room personnel with information on interlocked processes and their status. Full transaction history is available, revealing details of key insertion/removal. The unit is designed to support a remote web interface, without any specific licence.

SmartKey+ has enhanced levels of system security. All keys are trapped in the cabinet until authorisation is granted; a user is identified by a pin code. SmartKey+ highlights specific key positions that the operator is SmartKey+ Securely Manages Safety Interlock Keys in Real Time authorised to use. The user selects the appropriate key from the panel and removes the key as the selected key position is unlocked.

To reinsert a key in the SmartKey+ Cabinet, the user scans the key in front of the integrated scanner and the appropriate key position is highlighted on the frontal display for re-insertion.

The SmartKey+ Cabinet is configured around a central control panel capable of running a system with over 500 keys. SmartKey+ is comprised of modular sections, each containing 18 key positions, and can be increased incrementally.

SFC’s SmartKey+ provides a unique solution to key management, combining innovative software and smart technologies.
