New 2018 Electronic and Biometric Locking Catalogue from EMKA

Because threats to data security are internal to organisations as well as external, securing physical access to server cabinets is essential. That’s why corporations, military units and intelligence communities rely on EMKA-Digitus Biometrics, and stemming from this partnership there is now a full and free catalogue on the EMKA-Digitus range of Electronic and Biometric locking systems. This includes the world’s most flexible solution set for server-cabinet access control, with options for biometrics, proximity cards, smartcards, and PINs, including single- and dual-factor authentication.

Featuring built-in audit trails, these lock systems automatically document every event – including which cabinets have been accessed, when they were accessed and which individual gained access. They feature multi-factor authentication capable of combining keycard, biometric, RFID smartcard and PIN inputs, seamless enterprise access control integration and freedom to manage the system through a central software platform. This ensures convenience for both system administrators and end-users, built-in audit trail to meet regulatory compliance standards for physical access control and minimal hardware footprint within server cabinets.

Also covered is the db Bus access control system which saves costs by eliminating the need for a controller, network point and power supply at each cabinet. A sophisticated bus architecture distributes fail-safe signals and electrical power from a single controller to up to 64 cabinet door locks. The unit offers multiple options for authentication.

The EMKA 2018 Electronic and Biometric Locking Catalogue is available online at www.emkablog.co.uk/2018-locking-catalogue, or by email or phone request to sales@emka.co.uk, telephone 024 7661 6505.

EMKA Aluminium PROflex window kits for quicker self-assembly

Our modular PROflex aluminium window system enables users to fabricate what they want, when they want it, off the shelf for use as windows or mounting panels with or without depth frame for clearance of door mounted instrumentation.

This DIY approach enables panels to be outsourced in non-standard materials to non-standard sizes. It also allows for standard sizes to be adapted or modified to suit custom requirements at short notice.

The PROflex window system can be configured as a low profile window or as a protection for indicators/buttons/switches that protrude from the door panel. The system incorporates an integral cylinder lock mechanism or multiple locks on longer sizes.

EMKA hollow section enclosure gasket to fit door channel

Our program 1003 hollow gasket is a mainstay for sealing of enclosure doors where they can easily be fitted into a channel around the periphery of the door giving a face to face contact on the enclosure frame. These rectangular sealing profile sections offer a relatively soft compression for exclusion of dust and water, while their toothed sides provide a retaining function and secure fixing without gluing. They are also available with a wiping section for use on sliding doors.

Because of this simple assembly method they are a low cost quick and simple to fit – thereby saving time and money in production of specialist enclosures or other access panels and doors.
