New flush mounting quarter-turn and compression latches from EMKA for railway doors and cabinets

Our new catalogue of Ingenious Locking Technology for the Railroad Industry includes many new approaches to the specific needs of rail installers. The Program 1057 flush mounting quarter-turn latch is one such item. Designed for rear fitting to door panels of 3.5 to 21mm thickness and to present a very neat flush and vandal-resistant face, this lock is partnered with its sister Program 1000 IP65 stainless steel compression latch for mounting in the same way.

Rear mounted latches of this type present an especially clean aspect while offering little purchase to vandals.

In particular, the stainless steel compression version also provides a high degree of vibration proofing to prevent nuisance opening under difficult conditions. Gasket compression is an industry standard 6mm and a visual position indicator is provided for easy verification of status.

EMKA wingknob insert

This ingenious enhancement to our quarter turn product portfolio enables the user to turn an insert lock into a wing knob by means of a simple insert replacement which offers:

  • Good haptics
  • Durable yet slim design
  • Solid construction
  • Alternative to wing knob 1000-U78

In application the new wing knob insert can be used in combination with all quarter turn housings with a round head design only – combination with square headed housings e.g. 1000-U330 is not possible.

EMKA Single-factor, Multi-factor - front door, rear door linked data cabinet security

We have announced single and multi-factor authentication for linked front and back cabinet doors in data storage environments. This “at the handle” db BioLock fingerprint authentication can be used on its own for biometric level security or may be coupled with other components to incorporate keycard, RFID, smartcard and/or PIN inputs to provide seamless access control across a complete enterprise.

Where rear door security is required then the cabinet may be fitted with the db ELock which installs on the rear door and works in conjunction with the front door lock to simultaneously unlock the back door once authentication is completed at the front. It may also be used to unlock front/rear doors in end-of-row configurations using the EMKA db Enline.

The BioLock and ELock offer compatibility with third-party systems and cabinets for retro-fit security enhancements to deliver an indisputable audit trail so that customers may manage their access points around the world and monitor them in real time from a single platform.
