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

TECH-INFO

Direction of axle rotation 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. It is essential 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.

TECH-INFO

Lift or swing handle?

Most rack closing levers are designed as so-called swing levers. To open the rack door, a rotary movement is executed via the lever, which acts directly on the axle and then moves a closing linkage or a friction lock.

In contrast, the KXC-RA4 is designed as a hinged lift lever. Opening is achieved by pulling the lever open, and a gearbox converts this linear movement into a rotary movement. The advantage over the swing lever is the more ergonomic operation due to the simple pull-up and the lower force required for opening.

What are the Distribution Boxes needed for?

The distribution boxes are required to network the components in the rack. Depending on the connection type of the rack handle, either via the direct networking of several levers in bus topology, or the connection to a Kentix SmartPDU, different distributors are required.

One distributor is required per cabinet, to which the rack handle, the door contact and the networking among each other are then connected.

Mechanical adapters

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.

If your required cabinet type is not included, please contact us.

SmartAccess Accessories

Our IT rack levers are based on the same technology as all our SmartAccess solutions. This means that they can also be integrated into comprehensive locking solutions and all components can be networked with each other.

A wide range of accessories and expansion components is thus available.

Kentix DoorLock-RA4 für Rittal TS, TS IT, SE, PC, IW Racks


With the matching Kentix mechanical adapter for Rittal, our rack levers fit Rittal IT and distribution enclosures. Depending on the type, the adapters are suitable for flat standard doors or doors with design bevels. Variants with door monitoring are available for installation.

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.
