Uranium mining plant in Jordan deploys Invixium biometric access control
Following a successful proof of concept trial in an exterior desert location where temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius or higher along with spontaneous dust storms, the Jordanian Uranium Mining Company (JUMCO) has deployed Invixium‘s rugged biometric access control solution at its new plant 100 kilometers outside of the capital, Amman.
Electrosec, an Invixium partner in Jordan, showcased the IXM TITAN at the JIMEX industrial expo in Jordan last April and reported tremendous interest in this multi-biometric product and according to Ibrahim Sawalha, managing partner at Electrosec, “we quickly got our first order and completed the installation of Invixium’s TITAN and TOUCH 2 products within a few months.”
After a successful proof of concept where the TITAN was installed outdoors, the TITAN FPU1 was deployed at exterior locations for facial and fingerprint biometric access control utilizing the inbuilt relay from the TITAN to drive the electric strike, which all 35 employees at the mining plant use daily. For an entrance that is less frequently used, the TOUCH 2 device was installed for fingerprint biometric access only.
“The end user is very satisfied with the performance of the Invixium products, specifically authentication speed and low rejection rate, which is close to zero,” says Sawalha. “The team at Invixium was very supportive throughout this project, starting from the specification phase, the PoC and for the final installation. This was crucial and important as it was our first installation for TITAN in Jordan.”
