Harmony XB5S Biometric switchSimple, reliable and efficient

Fingerprint recognition is one of the fastest and most accurate ways of verifying access rights.

Harmony XB5S enables you to restrict access to sensitive zones and machine functions (starting, adjustment, maintenance, etc.) to authorized personnel only.

The database of authorized users can be managed directly on the device or externally via a PC or HMI interface. The Harmony XB5S switch enables you to determine the level of access to different process areas and individual HMI menu tabs.

Fingerprint recognition allows you to prevent unwarranted machine use, helping you to protect your staff, your equipment and the continuity of your production processes.
