Southco's New System Integration Kit Simplifies Connection to Existing Access Control Systems

CONCORDVILLE, Pa. – Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has recently launched the EA-A01 Security System Integration Kit, which simplifies the cabling and connections necessary between Southco’s H3-EM Electronic Swinghandle with integrated card reader and any Wiegand based access control system. The Integration Kit features easy plug-and-play installation, integrating with existing building access control infrastructure and extending data center security down to the rack level using readily available structured cabling.

The Integration Kit provides a complete turnkey solution that offers a simple, cost effective way to leverage existing systems to control and monitor access at the rack level within the data center. When integrated with an existing access control system, the new Integration Kit facilitates complete remote control and monitoring from building and room access down to server door access, which demonstrates compliance with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, HITECH and PCI DSS.

Business Development Manager Mike Fahy adds, “Data centers are networking server racks to their existing security systems to monitor and control access to the racks, just as they do for building and room access. The Security System Integration Kit offers simplified connectivity between Southco access control solutions and existing systems, enabling data centers to extend security from the building perimeter down to the cabinet level.”
