EMKA publishes 2014 enclosure and cabinet locking components catalogue
EMKA has published its 2014 enclosure and cabinet components catalogue, which features locks, handles, hinges, gaskets and electronic cabinet security products.
Of note are the radio-activated Agent E swinghandle with RFID card reader and the biometric access control systems with fingerprint scanning developed in partnership with Digitus-Biometrics.
The more conventional modular components in the catalogue are centred on the EMKA locks, handles, hinges and sealing profiles, but the 2014 edition offers greater coverage on technologies associated with these modular systems in production of standard and custom components for industry, transport, electronics and production environments.
This includes current and new items in quarter-turn locks, compression latches, L, T, wing and padlockable handles with a complete programme of stainless steel equivalents.
There are also rod locking systems and an extended programme of swinghandles, such as the 1317 vandal-resistant programme specifically for external use, as well as aluminium windows and doors for cabinets and toggle latches for enclosures and cases plus cabinet and cable accessories.
There is significant emphasis on clip-fix approaches - for example, in quarter-turn locks and rod guides - for speed and convenience of assembly in production environments.
The expanded section on the EMKA ELM electronic locking and monitoring systems includes rack management systems, the Agent E radio key/card reader programme and the biometric control systems referred to, with extended ranges of electronic actuated handles and latches for access control.
The EMKA 2014 catalogue also features specialist equipment for industries such as railways, motor industry and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning related applications and products using advanced and high-performance materials such as engineering polymers Grivory, Grilamid and Grilon.
