CC Capture Operator Log in via RFID

RFID card readers

New CC Capture 1.1 has the ability to allow the user to log into the application using RFID cards. We will extend this to QR-code/barcode readers soon. This makes it very easy for the operator to authenticate in a very fast way. As all critical application setting are operator related it makes this feature very useful when one measurement station (Instrument + CC Capture on Mac or PC) is shared by more than one operator.

Typically, it takes about three seconds to read an ID card, recognize operator and reload Capture based on a list of devices, tracks, measurement tasks that are assigned to the operator and finally send measurement settings into the instrument (time measured for X-Rite eXact Scan). If no additional task (like scanning Job ID or Customer ID) in about three seconds measurement Instrument is ready and the operator can start measurements. The scan of single row control strip like "Min G7" takes few seconds plus about two additional to get the report!  No other software on the market offers such flexibility and speed when working with handheld instruments. 

 

The system is very safe because the only portion of the coded serial number is encrypted with SHA-512, then reduced to a portion of data - finally ChromaChecker uses this unique "fingerprint", which is unusable for any other purpose. ChromaChecker is not reading, transmitting or processing any information that can reduce the customer's ID card system security.  

The user may decide to use an existing RFID system or they can have cards dedicated for ChromaChecker solution. There are a variety of RFID card readers that are compatible with CC Capture. The general rule is that it requires a serial connection - and we recommend virtual serial port (USB COM). Please refer to CC Manual to learn more.

 

How to implement

  1. Click on ID card icon and connect a reader
  2. Identify your card - if successfully done in test window your card "fingerprint" will be displayed
    (in this example: LTO6F6IRXckYwGhdy3L9Un9wdT)



  3. Copy/paste this string  it into Operator's details:   
    ChromaChechecker  • Accountability Inspector  •  Staff  •  Identification •  ID card / RFID card reader (encrypted partial data)

 

How it works

  1. Launch CC Capture
  2. Be sure that your RFID card reader is connected before Instrument. 
  3. When all devices are connected identify your RFID card

CC Capture Operator Log in via RFID

If Employees have bar codes, or RFID cards, they can use either of these devices to automatically log into CC Capture (ver. 1.1. is required). In multi-user mode RFID card can switch all setting for another operator in three seconds including sending all new parameters to the Instrument.

Multi-page charts for CC Capture (i1iO)

Instruments like X-Rite i1iO have some limitation caused by limited scanning area. IT-8 or TC-1617 are typical examples where single page is too small, and the only way is split task into two or more pages. Now Capture is supporting Scanning templates where each page is defined separately - next joined into multipage measurement task.
