Swisslog Introduces WhoTube™ Card Swipe Technology for Pneumatic Tube Systems
Card swipe technology enables hospitals to secure and track pneumatic tube system transactions.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 29, 2008
Swisslog, a leading provider of automated material transport systems and pharmacy automation solutions for hospitals, introduces WhoTube™ card swipe technology for TransLogic Pneumatic Tube Systems.
WhoTube card swipe technology provides additional security for pneumatic tube system station access and for secure transactions. The swipe of a valid access card unlocks the station control panel and, if equipped, can also unlock Swisslog's Station Access Doors.
Station control panels will be unable to send carriers until the user swipes their valid access card authorizing sending from that station. In the case of secure transactions, the recipient must also swipe their badge to authorize delivery.
This technology tracks all sender and receiver information electronically for future reference. WhoTube can use existing facility security cards and supports magnetic strip, barcode, proximity and smart card technologies. WhoTube can be easily retrofitted to most TransLogic Pneumatic Tube Systems.
