Data centres in particular are required to secure their server racks against unwanted access. To secure server rack doors, a combination of electromechanical handle, software and radio technology is a best choice. EMKA already has such a system in use with the "Agent E" at numerous customers (among others large banks) - including personalised access to the cabinet as well as permanent monitoring and control of the opening and closing processes.
The risen requirements of modern IT infrastructure in data centres demand a maximum of physical security.
The Rack Management System by EMKA guarantees unambiguous logging and backtracking due to its personified access control down to cabinet level. Moreover, the system monitors all physical parameters in the rack and thus increases the operational reliability of the entire installation. It consists of a data-base-driven control software, high-capacity modules and electro-mechanical handles.
The EMKA Rack Management Systems are installed worldwide in data centres and server parks of banks and co-location centres.
Synchronised hardware and software components ensure a maximum of security and transparency for the access control. The database-driven software Control Cockpit takes care of the central operation, monitoring and configuration
A high-capacity wireless network enables the direct access to a virtually unlimited number of server racks. The complete logging documents all access-relevant information and guarantees the possibility of unambiguous backtracking of the events. In case of irregularities alerts are automatically transmitted.
Everything for your security.
Stand-alone systems are electronic locks with their own intelligence for accessing up to two electromechanical locks.They are suitable for access control for individual racks not requiring central monitoring.
Depending on the chosen lock the opening is either effected by RFID cards or by entering a PIN code on a keypad. Systems with RFID cards are specially easy to install as no further wiring in the rack is required.
Whether locks, handles, hinges or gaskets for diverse applications: EMKA products always stand for maximum safety and reliability. As a long-time system partner of data centers, EMKA is constantly working on new and innovative products like our Rack Management Systems for Electronic Locking and Monitoring.
