New SmartZone G5 Security Handle for ITE cabinets from Panduit

Panduit has launched the SmartZone™ G5 Security Handle for ITE cabinets, which is designed for today’s data centre environments.

The multi-functional smart handle offers multiple configurations with and without a keypad to compliment the user’s operational requirements. An integrated keypad version enables dual authentication by allowing for a card swipe and pin-code combination to access the cabinet.

The G5 Security handle has the capability to read both low frequency (125kHz) and high frequency (13.5MHz) cards and has been designed to be current and future compliant with regulations required within this environment as well as being GDPR ready, HIPAA ready and PCI-DSS ready to ensure that this design meets data centres and users’ cabinet security needs.

It can support 200 authorised users and features an integral humidity sensor allowing humidity sensing to be optimally placed near the centre of the cabinet. The Status LED provides visual indication of the handle and security status. The Beacon LED is a visual indicator to provide status of the health of the cabinet at-a-glance. The beacon will flash yellow when the cabinet is in a minor alarm or flash red when the cabinet has a critical alarm. Users can use the beacon’s locate function to flash the beacon a defined colour to easily locate the cabinet when in a long run of cabinets.
