EMKA is offering two access locking and monitoring systems to protect cabinets, server rooms and control suites.

The first system is the hardwired Electronic Lock Modular (ELM) system, which is suitable for security with environmental monitoring, such as temperature, climatic variables, smoke, acceleration/tilt, mains observation, mains switch, read switch and GSM internet (SNMP) access, in addition to the primary cabinet locking hardware and access software.

This makes the ELM suitable for use in data processing areas in the financial services sector, thanks to its ability to connect to central systems and offer flexible zoned configuration.

The system may be configured to identify row/rack number and all the door solenoids and switches identified on the system that can be set up to allow remote access for multiple system administrators from different individual sites.

The ELM system can then log all visits and enable remote access, so that it is easy to remotely read new users onto the system from the comfort of the main office, which could be on the other side of the city.

A new user simply calls the administrator, who then logs into the system to ’read new card’ and activates this ID card.

EMKA’s second electronic access system is the Agent E radio-controlled handle programme.

Andy Billingham, managing director, said: ’Until now, machinery cabinets have often been equipped only with simple mechanical locks, which, while adequate, when respected are vulnerable to abuse by anyone with a standard key.

’We are now convinced of the need within the industrial arena for a combination of electromechanical access controls and we believe that the ubiquitous radio key we have all come to use on our cars now shows the way in the factory or computer network.

’Consequently we have developed a new programme of long-life battery-based radio security swing handles, designated Agent E, with the aim of meeting equipment requirements such as the new EC Machine Directive,’ he added.

This new development line is claimed to offer benefits in terms of security, access recording, speed of installation and retrofit.

The new Agent E radio-controlled swing handle programme does not need hard wiring and may be installed on individual cabinets or large applications with many suites of cabinets.

The EMKA Agent E Manager remote software enables wireless data transfer via an integral radio module whereby data can be transferred to a control station and/or master office.

This enables the release of handles to be actioned remotely, as well as control event logging.

In a retrofit application, for example, it is a simple matter of replacing the existing mechanical lock with an electronic swing handle, with no wiring necessary.

This is possible because of the low-consumption technology that allows two AAA batteries to last approximately three to four years in normal use.

The EMKA Agent E wireless lock programme may be initialised and updated via a laptop or a handheld PC, whereby the associated software changes and protocol updates can be effected.
