More flexible authorization management for ID key-operated switches


Nuremberg, Germany. Siemens is extending its Sirius Act Identification (ID) key-operated switch portfolio to include two new functions. The new version E03 enables more flexible authorization management, for instance allowing new keys to be added following plant delivery simply using their individual number. New keys can be registered from any location over IO link, either using the Port Configuration Tool (PCT) or alternatively by means of the user program. There is no longer any need for physical contact between the key and the ID switch. The new version also allows more user profiles to be created using the PCT, and all authorization levels can be individually combined without restriction.
Industrial plants frequently involve functions which require special authorization. These special functions can be enabled by authorized key holders using Sirius ACT ID key-operated switches. 
The tag integrated in the ID key-operated switch is read by a transmitter unit over a wireless connection, meaning that no mechanical contact is required between the switch and the key. The electronic circuit integrated in the switch is protected against external influences such as dirt or water by a plastic coating. An additional benefit is that the tags, and consequently the authorization levels, can be modified remotely, or blocked in case of loss. The new functions provided by version E03 for Sirius Act ID key-operated switches enable the implementation of considerably more complex and more flexible authorization management.
