Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently released eConnect® Electronic Access Control (EAC), a networked locking solution for data center cabinets that allows data center managers to keep a log entry of each cabinet access remotely, adding another layer of security at the cabinet level.
eConnect EAC fully integrates with vertical eConnect power distribution units (PDUs), removing the need to power and network the locks separately. This integrated solution combines rack-level power management, environmental monitoring and remote access control into a single, easy-to-use PDU based system.
Thanks to eConnect’s Secure Array™ IP Consolidation technology, this integrated cabinet ecosystem uses a single network connection and one interface to monitor all three elements, greatly simplifying rack management. Secure Array allows up to 32 PDUs to be linked under one network connection, which significantly reduces network deployment costs.
