Southco's H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle

Southco's H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle

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 consumption.
