Harmony switch for industrial biometrics market

Sagem Securite : 16 April, 2009  (New Product)
Collaboration between Sagem Security and Schneider Electric results in a biometric switch for use in industrial environments
Schneider Electric and Sagem Sécurité combine their expertise to create a new security solution for industrial environments: the Harmony Biometric Switch.

Particularly innovative and perfectly suited to the needs and stipulations of the industrial market, the Harmony Biometric Switch provides optimum access control to systems and equipment.

The biometrics integrated in the "Harmony" key switch combine user-friendliness (no key, badge or password that can be lost, forgotten, stolen or copied) with a high level of protection (uniqueness of access using fingerprint recognition). It offers the industrial sector increased productivity by reducing maintenance and operating costs of the system and, at the same time, prevents unauthorised operation.

Designed to operate fully independently, without an additional interface (PC), the Harmony Biometric Switch is simple to set-up since both its parametering and enrolment functions are quick, intuitive and directly performed on the sensor. Regarding installation, its compactness enables it to be easily integrated in a control panel due to its compliance to the standard diameter 22mm cut-out mounting method.


Sagem Securité, world leader in biometrics and major provider for identification systems throughout the world, has developed the biometric sensor. Originating from a compact biometric module of the CBM MorphoSmart range, it will ensure the highest level of security and reliability possible. This fingerprint recognition sensor uses the optical technology mastered by Sagem Sécurité and provides the Harmony Biometric Switch with an excellent image quality as well as robustness, which is essential in an industrial environment.

Mechanical and electronic integration, together with the dialogue method, have been developed by Schneider Electric, a market reference for control and signalling components and Man-Machine Dialogue.
