varicontrol-L: locking / acCESS CONTROL
Many organisations put a lot of effort in the security of their ICT infrastructure by using building, room, hard- and software security systems. Securing racks should of course be part of the plan, but is often underestimated or just too simple. On the other hand, the same organisations depend more and more upon the availability of their ICT-infrastructure. What if intruders reach your valuable IT-equipment and information? Minkels offers a program of Varicontrol-L electro mechanical swivel handles which prevent unauthorized entry of your racks.
To guarantee optimal security, Minkels offers three solutions:
Varicontrol-L HID-Direct, Varicontrol-L HID-485 and Varicontrol-L Basic.
Varicontrol HID-DIRECT AND HID-485
The HID products offer a complete rack access solution. For the authorisation, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is used. The handles are equipped with a card reader, which is able to read the information from the RFiD card. This card contains the authorisation information that is needed to unlock the swivel handle. Management software is supplied with the system and is normally installed on a central server. This software can communicate over the network (Ethernet) with the handles and equipment. The difference between HID-Direct and HID-485 is the communication with the network. The HID-Direct has a direct Ethernet connection. The HID-485 communicates over a serial RS-485 bus, in case an Ethernet network connection is desired, a Gateway is required.
The Varicontrol-L Basic swivel handles are equipped with a simple relay port through which a direct connection with your own application can be easily realised. The main advantage of this system is that in almost every situation it can be integrated with your existing building management or access control system. The authorisation and user control are already integrated in this system. The Varicontrol-L Basic system is the most obvious choice to secure your rack.
The systems fit in all the standard Varicon M racks, without making any adjustments.
