Digital Rack Locking

IT enclosure handle in robust metal-plastic design as a folding lever handle. This means that the handle does not require a swivel range and enables ergonomic handling. The connection is made completely via patch cable. Up to 16 handles can be connected per Kentix AccessManager. Any number of AccessManagers can be networked together.
A reed contact can be connected directly to each IP rack handle, which reliably monitors the closing and locking status of the rack door. The power supply is PoE and is thus integrated into the UPS power supply.

Thanks to KentixONE, our locking solutions can be easily integrated into data center automation solutions via the REST API.

TECH-INFO

Direction of rotation of the axis for lifting handles

The KXC-RA4 is available in two axis rotation directions (right/left). Since the lifting handle always performs the same movement, the gear unit or the axis rotation must be set according to the L/R door side.

Be sure to note the required direction of rotation of the axis when ordering. Easy to remember, the direction of rotation is always the same as the side of the door hinges.

For the direction of rotation, always look at the back of the door or back of the lever.

What are the Distribution Boxes needed for?

The distribution boxes are required to network the components for front/rear door with rack levers and door contacts in the rack. Depending on the connection type of the rack lever, either via the direct networking of several levers in bus topology, or the connection to a Kentix SmartPDU.

One distributor is required per cabinet, to which the rack handle, the door contact and the networking among each other are then connected. The advantage, for 8 racks with 16 doors only one Ethernet port with PoE is needed.



Mechanical adapters for different rack manufacturer

On most IT racks, the Kentix cabinet lever fits without mechanical adjustment by means of an adapter. This is guaranteed by the standard 50 mm pitch dimension. However, there are some manufacturers that design proprietary locking systems. For the most common manufacturers, we offer mechanical adapters that are simply mounted between the cabinet and the lever. Supported Vendors: Rittal, Vertiv (Knürr), Stengel, Schäfer, ZPAS, Modulan, uvm. If your required cabinet type is not included, please contact us.

Kentix locking solutions for IT cabinets


Compared to conventional swing handles, the Kentix DoorLock-RA4 is a so-called lifting lever. The advantage: the handle allows space-saving and very ergonomic operation. The opening process is very convenient, as the lever springs open automatically and can be opened with one pull.

Due to the standard dimensions used (50 mm grid), the handle is already compatible with many rack cabinet types. For manufacturers with proprietary lever mechanisms, such as Rittal or Vertiv, there are corresponding adapter solutions for easy replacement.

In addition to the DoorLock-RA4, we also offer digital locking half cylinders or radio cabinet locks for simple IT distributors.


Direct connection of the rack lever to the Kentix SmartPDU


The DoorLock-RA4 is an important system component with many advantages. In addition to stand-alone use, the lever can also be connected directly to a Kentix SmartPDU. On the one hand, this eliminates the need for wiring between the cabinets, and on the other hand, the front and rear door handles of the cabinet are supplied redundantly via the PDUs. The SmartPDU takes over the management of the handle and the monitoring of the door contacts. Only a central access manager is then required as further hardware. Integration into an overall Kentix locking system is thus solved even more simply.
