DIRAK E-LINE Basic



New electro-mechanical swinghandle integrates into existing security systems

Sterling, Virginia - As part of its E-LINE electro-mechanical swinghandles, DIRAK introduces the E-LINE BASIC series to monitor access to a server cabinet. The E-LINE BASIC offers a flexible interface that enables the handle to be integrated into existing security systems. In addition, the E-LINE BASIC can be used with a number of user interface options to give an even higher level of security. Interface options include biometric systems and RFID readers. This allows the handle to be an integral part of a modern and secure locking and monitoring system.

The E-LINE BASIC transmits the current status of the handle (locked/unlocked) to the existing security system. This allows the operator to access from their main security system a status overview of the BASIC swinghandle in real-time. In addition, the E-LINE BASIC has built-in safety functions to protect the swinghandle's locking solenoid from generating too much heat, even when there is a failure to the main system. Its compact and modular design allows for easy installation in a variety of cabinet types and it uses the same panel preparation as other swinghandles, making upgrades simple.

Specific features of the E-LINE BASIC include:
o Flexibility in the adaptation to existing security systems
o Integrated protection from too much heat build-up
o Status LED
o Status transmission to show if the swinghandle is locked/unlocked
o Modular design
