Idar-Oberstein, 30.09.2020 +++

The new DoorLock-RA4 is an advanced mechatronic IoT system component in the Kentix SmartAccess portfolio that does more than just open and close server and data cabinets. It may look like a handle for IT racks and can also do everything an server cabinet door handle must be able to do. But behind it is a well engineered access control system that can be scaled to an unlimited extent, with intelligent software and an app that also allows access via smartphone and smartwatch. In addition, the mechatronic unit of the robust die-cast plastic handle contains an RFID reader for Mifare-DESFire media and a touch-PIN keyboard. As a so-called lifting or folding handle, it takes up less space when opened compared to conventional swivel handles and is more ergonomic to operate. The integration with all important and open system standards with REST-API, LDAP, SNMP V2/3 is easy and the administration is very comfortable thanks to the integrated web interface. A clearly visible LED bar with additional acoustic feedback makes operation doubly safe. Only one PoE-compatible Ethernet port is required for operation.

Minimising physical threats in the rack – New SmartPDU is an all-in-one solution for securing server cabinets

Download press release as PDF »»| Read press release online »»

  • Kentix’s new SmartPDU enables seamless monitoring of the power supply, environment including early fire detection and rack closure
  • Calculation of Power Usage Effectiveness possible without using external software
  • Kentix CEO: “The integrated residual current monitoring contributes to higher electrical safety as well as increased fire protection.”

Idar-Oberstein, 16.12.2020 +++ Kentix, the specialist for holistic and scalable IoT solutions to protect business-critical infrastructures, releases the SmartPDU as the latest offshoot of its PDU series. Kentix thus offers a scalable all-in-one system solution for seamless monitoring of power, environment with early fire detection and rack closure. As a central control element, the modular PDU takes over the redundant complete monitoring of all important parameters in the server cabinet. Required function extensions can either be mapped via hardware modules or enabled in the software, whereby the concept takes several speech levels into account. In addition to the single PDUs, the series also includes dual variants with 40 U (vertical) or 2 U (horizontal). These offer an all-round security package to meet ISO 27001 requirements, especially for applications in edge computing.

Kentix SmartXcan provides early hotspot detection in vulnerable industrial areas such as meat and food processing.

Idar-Oberstein, 30.07.2020 +++ Kentix GmbH, manufacturer of professional smart building security solutions for the physical security of business-critical infrastructures, provides with the latest software update of the SmartXcan an easy way to identify regional COVID-19 hotspots early by contactless fever screening. Approximately 1/3 of COVID-19 infected persons show fever symptoms and can be quickly detected by SmartXcan. Hotspots, as they have become known in many companies (especially in the food industry) in recent weeks, can thus be detected and contained at an early stage. The new Kentix SmartXcan provides a fast and reliable body temperature measurement. The operation is intuitive and self-explanatory, the results are reliable and accurate. The measurement is contactless – therefore safe for the user. EU-GDPR-compliant operation is possible without problems.
