Excel Networking showcases new range of Environ Lock Solutions

Data CentresMore News

Excel Networking Solutions, the copper, optical cabling and rack solutions provider, has launched a new range of Environ Lock Solutions in conjunction with Southco and Entertech, which they had on show at the Data Centre World conference in London.

The Environ Lock Solutions provide a choice of stand-alone and networkable solutions that can be integrated with access control systems, BMS and Biometrics and all work on the range of Environ Racks.

The Solutions bring intelligence and monitoring right down to the lock level of a data rack, giving you ultimate control of access to the services and equipment within a comms room or data centre, making it perfect for co-location deployments and remote locations where only authorised access is permissible.

“The new Environ Lock Solutions add the next level of security to any Environ rack installation and we’ve chosen to work with industry leaders Southco, who have a proven track record and a fantastic reputation with regards to the quality of their products. Where biometrics is required we are working with Entertech/Digitus to complete the solution,” said Tracey Calcutt, Marketing Manager, Excel Networking Solutions.

“As with the whole ethos behind the Excel brand, giving customers a choice is imperative and it certainly isn’t a one solution fits all when it comes to the locks, the range covers RFID Intelligent, Biometric Intelligent, Standalone Combination Lock, Standalone RFiD Lock and the solution also integrates with the ISONAS access control system, Bio Connect and the Excel Intelligent PDUs as well as other 3rd party systems through an integration kit.”


“We believe that the Environ Lock Solutions will be specifically relevant for the Data Centre market, particularly where co-location deployments are required; however wherever any extra security is required for any Environ Rack installation there is a lock solution to meet every requirement,” she concluded.

This is a peace of mind decision that guarantees access control and security at rack level,” said Neil Staley, Product Marketing Executive, Excel Networking Solutions. “This new lock system ensures remote access from anywhere in the world and provides real time data on who has accessed the rack and when the lock has been opened. We estimate this product will be available later this year across the Middle East region,” he said.
