Access control and authentication in a modern factory environment encompass a wide range of applications, including physical access control, network and data access, machine authentication for production lines, industrial vending for parts and supplies, and driver identification for fleet and material handling vehicles, to name a few. Not to mention access to company amenities such as the parking garage, cafeteria, EV charging ports, or gym.
