After an initial meeting on Nov. 20, 2006, GOTSCHLICH partner DNS Datentechnik GmbH received an order on Nov. 29, 2006 to supply the hardware and software for the new access system. After adapting the existing software and modifying the hardware to the new requirements, the system was started up and handed over on Dec. 15, 2006.

Such a fast turnaround was only possible with optimal organization and great flexibility on the part of the employees and upstream suppliers. Gotschlich delivered the turnstiles within a few days.

The BASIS TT Entry UNIT reader station was specially designed for the MODUL BASIS turnstile from Gotschlich. This reader station is integrated in the turnstile and consists of a plexiglas housing with an opening for card insertion . A red or green LED inside the housing lights up to indicate the status. The housing has a holder for the controller board, RFID reader and EAN reader. The RFID cards do not necessarily have to be inserted in the card reader, but are also read when held in front of the housing. Thus RFID tags in the form of key fobs can also be used. The assembly takes only a few minutes. The cover of the MODUL BASIS turnstile snaps open so that the reader station is accessible from within - extremely maintenance-friendly. The wiring consists of a single patch cable which plugs into the controller board.

The software, adapted by DNS to this customer's needs, is easy to install, learn and operate. Two touch-screen ticket machines ensure fast ticketing with no long lines. The day cards are printed out by two STAR printers. These printers are very fast and reliable. Hotel guests receive RFID cards (transponder cards). These serve as pass cards for the funicular for the duration of their hotel stay. The Schatzalp Hotel staff (about 100 people) use RFID tags in the form of a key fob. These tags are personalized and can also be linked with a photo taken using the TopTech software and stored in the database. The employee's photo is displayed on a security monitor with each entry.
