EMKA AGENT E wireless swinghandle gets added RFID swipe card security

Central network wireless control, coupled with RFID transponder swipe card technology, adds higher levels of security to EMKA's program 3000 AGENT E battery powered electronically controlled swinghandles for data cabinet protection. These standalone swinghandles can be used wirelessly, on their own, or networked in groups controlled via an RJ45 linked ProxLock module supplemented by personal RFID transponder card identification for duel level control.

The AGENT E handle therefore forms a flexible security module within an expandable network, usable on otherwise vulnerable data or control cabinets. Typically this may include server cabinets or machine controls where unauthorised access is likely to put personnel, machine or information safety at risk from tampering, vandalism/sabotage, data theft or simple inappropriate usage.

AGENT E Card readers work on 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz and each handle is equipped with a covert USB connection for emergency power/opening and memory log download on standalone versions. Handles retain their finger touch release on network "master" and "slave" units, along with green and red LED indicators which identify the operating window.

Naturally the AGENT E swinghandles are compatible with other EMKA door closure equipment such as cams and rod controls for multi-point locking. Door contact sensors may be linked to all versions.
