The Emka Beschlagteile GmbH goes on show with its forward-looking vision on a booth area of 280 m2. According to the firm, it is displaying its entire portfolio of electronic locking systems at the Hannover Messe.

For last year, Emka noted a particular increase in customer demand for complete system solutions – additionally fuelled by the coming into force of the EU’s GDPR. The background, the firm suspects, is increasing attention being paid to reliable monitoring systems, including documented access control. The decisive point here is continuous documentation and traceability.

For more and more firms, Emka tells us, it has in the meantime become important to be able to detect and monitor who has had access to a switching, server or control cabinet, and when. The firm’s complete systems can do this reliably, we hear.

For machine construction in particular, Emka has developed further its proven E-Cam security solution. In the previous version, the system secured doors and hatches in dangerous safety zones, for example at switching cubicles or machines.

The new version, E-Cam Safety, is a further development with TÜV certification: the integrated sensor element is fitted redundantly, enabling it to attain the performance level specified in the machine guidelines.

In sensitive areas such as computing centres, Emka tells us, there is particular demand for system solutions with monitoring function. This is apparently why the Agent-E system is an evergreen in the firm’s portfolio of electronic locking solutions. Among other things, it was conceived for protecting server racks in computing centres. In combination with software from EMKA, an electro-mechanical handle with radio technology enables controlled access for authorised persons.

The further development of Agent-E features a significant optimisation of the operator-friendliness, we hear. The system has furthermore been expanded by two reading modules for authorisation by ID card.

Systems with monitoring function for switching and server cabinets as well as for office and file cabinets in medical practices or legal offices are available from EMKA.
