EMKA offer Data Centre Biolock demonstration kit – for exploration and evaluation
In some cases there is no real alternative to a physical, hands-on demonstration or test run. The innovative EMKA Biolock system for server racking is one such example – so to enable interested data centre security engineers to see for themselves – EMKA have created a demo-in-a-case which can be sent out on request.
The Biolock demonstration kit comes complete with hardware as decided upon during the initial consultation housed within a heavy-duty aluminium case, together with a laptop which contains the user software with the demo system already registered onto it. All that remains to be done is for the client to add some users and then start to get used to it.
Benefits to this approach include that the client can use and become compliant with the system in a controlled environment at their leisure with a simple introduction to the complete suite of items – including a parallel phone or online conversation with the demonstrating EMKA engineer.
The kit also presents an opportunity for the client to get to see not just the software but the hardware and how they integrate into the anticipated installation.
EMKA announce new enclosure gasket sealing brochure
The New EMKA gasket sealing brochure presents a comprehensive collection of technical information plus an illustrated listing of sealing profiles showing standard ex-stock sections – downloadable at https://www.emka.com/uk_en/services/download/industry/.
Gasket seals are appropriate for use on specialist/general-purpose industrial enclosures and cabinets such as electrical and electronic housings, also for arduous environments such as in the food and agriculture industries. Sealing profiles are illustrated for specialist vehicles such as those for sport and leisure, e.g. caravans, motor homes etc also rescue and service vehicles, railway carriages, indoor and outdoor, offshore and underground e.g. fire-resistant and EMF screened.
Typical materials used are EPDM, NBR and silicone – so helpfully the brochure describes their characteristics with guidance on suitability for different environments and applications.
Of particular interest to customers installing in a series production environment is the EMKA gasket joining service which provides complete machine sealed and joined assemblies of rings and frames for quick installation, without the need to join ends at the point of fitting and with properly engineered and robust sealing around corners.
