CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, recently announced that the Oman India Fertiliser Company S.A.O.C (OMIFCO) has chosen CEM's AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) to secure their premises. The system was installed by CEM Approved Reseller, Majees Technical Services LLC.
OMIFCO is jointly owned by Oman Oil Company SAOC (50%), Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Limited (25%) and Krishak Bharati Cooperative Limited (25%). The company was established in 2005 to construct and operate a modern ammonia-urea fertiliser manufacturing plant at the Sur Industrial Estate in the Sultanate of Oman. OMIFCO's aim is to become an internationally recognised model for major chemical and fertiliser manufacturing companies based on its achievements and standards in the fields of health & safety and environmental protection, employee and community relations as well as operational performance.
OMIFCO required a comprehensive security solution which could interface with a key safe system and would allow also them to manage pass production on site. CEM's AC2000 SE security management system provided the ideal solution.
"The CEM AC2000 security system offers Oman Fertiliser Company the highest level of security and system reliability while offering a sophisticated range of security applications including central alarm monitoring and ID badging" said Andrew Fulton, Senior Director Global Sales, CEM Systems. "The range of AC2000 SE integrations with third party systems also means that Oman Fertiliser Company have a fully integrated security management solution".
OMIFCO opted to install the AC2000 Deister Keysafe Interface which, used in conjunction with the Deister proxSafe, can ensure that only authorised cardholders have access to secured keys. Using an integrated card reader on the proxSafe terminal, AC2000 system personnel data and cardholder details are transferred to the Deister Keysafe system. This provides efficient and traceable key use without the need to input personnel data into two different systems, helping to increase site security and minimise the duplication of administrative work.
Majees Technical Services LLC installed several other powerful applications including AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging and Pass Production System) providing OMIFCO with the ability to design and create professional quality permanent and temporary ID passes. In addition, OMIFCO have selected AC2000 Visitors and AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display) integrated alarm processing software, providing dynamic graphical representation of all system events.
OMIFCO also installed CEM industry leading hardware including the S610s intelligent serial card reader, which gives full off-line validation and decision making at the point of entry, even when host communication is not available. This reader has an IP66 rated polycarbonate enclosure, keypad and a backlit LCD which provides meaningful messages to cardholders for example Wrong Time Zone, Lost/Stolen Card and Access Granted.
