The Penco Smart Tool Crib system permits authorized employees to log into the system using their existing ID cards and to select specific tools or equipment from compartments identified on a flat panel monitor. After successful login, the doors open automatically and permit removal of the items. Closure of the door identifies the compartment as empty, and records the identity of the person who accessed it. User access, duration of possession, and time of return are all logged, which in turn support a number of reporting options. Administrators can open all doors in seconds, or lock down the system altogether. The system incorporates a mix of 48-inch tall 2- and 4-tier compartments accessed using a standard keyboard and card swipe interface. Optional configurations incorporate a fully integrated touch panel monitor and control cabinet. For more information visit www.pencoproducts.com or call (800) 562-1000.
