Invixium is chosen as the access control solution for Jordan’s first uranium mine, JUMCO, to provide rugged security for areas where this highly-volatile material is mined.
The Middle East, including Jordan, is notorious for extreme desert conditions, which includes hot temperatures that reach 40 degrees Celsius or higher along with spontaneous dust storms. All of these present tremendous challenges for Industrial companies looking to modernize their facilities and infrastructure with biometric access control and/or time and attendance.
The Most Rugged Biometric Access Control Product Ever Engineered
ElectroSec’s first order for IXM TITAN came from the Jordanian Uranium Mining Company (JUMCO) for their new plant 100 kilometers outside of the capital, Amman. JUMCO wanted a rugged biometric solution for access control that would be deployed outdoors with both facial and fingerprint recognition. After a successful POC where the TITAN was installed outdoors, the heads at JUMCO were convinced to go ahead with the Invixium solution for the pilot project. 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.
“After showing the TITAN at JIMEX, there was tremendous interest from our visitors in this multi-biometric product from a Canadian manufacturer. From the show, we quickly got our first order and completed the installation of Invixium’s TITAN and TOUCH 2 products within a few months. 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. 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,” said Ibrahim Sawalha, Managing Partner at ElectroSec.
