The H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle provides electronic access
security to datacenter cabinets and other industrial enclosures. Designed as an
electronic locking platform, the H3-EM features integrated sensors that detect
both lock and latch status-indicating both locked and unlocked states. Multiple
output signals provide local LED indication plus output for remote monitoring.
The microprocessor sends robust output data to remote monitoring centers and
allows both momentary and continuous lock actuation for a wide range of
voltages. The H3-EM's design allows for a simple retrofit and integration with
industry standard rack monitoring solutions. An integrated microprocessor draws
minimal power, which makes it an ideal choice for applications where power
consumption is a concern. Southco sets up the highly flexible H3-EM with
different features and timed locks, which can be customized with a variety of
different materials and grips. Used by itself or as part of system, the H3-EM
can accommodate multiple rack sizes and configurations. The H3-EM's
ability to accept a variety of access control signals makes it a unique
solution for datacenter managers and engineers desiring added security. The
highly customizable H3-EM further differentiates itself from competing products
with built-in intelligence for momentary or continuous lock actuation with
multi-event status reporting. The integrated sensors coupled with the
intuitive, integrated microprocessor provide robust output with minimal power
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
