Sun Valley, a recognised leader in the European food industry, recently have
installed a WinTA system to control access control at their UK sites. From turnstiles and car
park barriers to internal doors the system had to allow the staff to gain access quickly while providing an accurate
procedure for accounting for all members of staff and visitors in emergency situations.
The external readers which are used for the turnstiles and car park barriers are designed to IP65 standard and
can the located outside without further protection. Every reader’s security
level can be set for any time of day and therefore access control patterns can be set for each shift and area.
Sun Valley use the Time and Attendance facility not only for
employee attendance monitoring but also for job costing. With the
simple use of a Smart Card and input device (keypad, barcode
scanner etc), employees book time against jobs to produce a full
cost analysis and breakdown of time spend on each one. Real time
reports show jobs that are over budget or those approaching their
Sun Valley’s fire alarm
system is integrated their with WinTA allowing the Fire Roll call facility in WinTA.
The Fire Roll Call printer automatically prints when the Fire Alarm Activates allowing a fast
and accurate procedure for accounting for all members of staff and visitors.
