eConnect® Electronic Access Control

eConnect Electronic Access ControleConnect® Electronic Access Control (EAC) integrates with eConnect Power Distribution Units (PDUs) to provide an easy-to-use, economical and robust networked electronic lock. Works seamlessly with power management and environmental monitoring products for complete data center solution.

eConnect EAC is a cost-effective networked locking solution that works with CPI's eConnect Power Distribution Units (PDUs) to support the three key elements of remote management at the cabinet level: power monitoring, environmental monitoring and physical access control. 

This integrated PDU-based cabinet ecosystem uses a single network connection and one interface to monitor all three elements, greatly simplifying rack management.

Through the eConnect interface, users are able to remotely program, monitor and control each cabinet access and keep a log entry for security and regulatory compliance purposes. 

Additionally, CPI Secure Array® IP Consolidation, a feature of eConnect PDUs, allows up to 32 PDUs (16 cabinets) and any connected locks and sensors to share a single network connection which significantly reduces networking costs. 

Easily integrate with CPI's Power IQ® for eConnect or other third-party DCIM software to further enhance capabilities.

Features include:

  • Electronic swinghandle with integrated sensors for lock and latch status, monitoring and alarm functions
  • Power for lock operation delivered through eConnect PDU
  • Remote unlock capability
  • User-configurable unlock time delay
  • High-security lock with mechanical key override
  • Reader recognizes existing employee 125kHz or 13.56 MHz RFID cards
  • Bi-color LED (blue/magenta) to indicate lock and handle status
  • Event logging for auditing purposes, regulatory compliance
  • Integration with LDAP and Radius for added security
  • High temperature rating supports use in hot aisle environments
  • Must be used with eConnect PDUs that have auxiliary 1 and auxiliary 2 ports (PDUs manufactured after March 2017)
  • Compatible with GF-Series GlobalFrame®, F-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets and N-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets

Full Cabinet Integration Simplified

eConnect power and security products are key components of the cabinet ecosystem. When combined with CPI's GlobalFrame or TeraFrame Cabinets, it is possible to integrate electronic access control, power management and environmental monitoring using one interface. Integration with eConnect PDUs removes the need to power and network the locks separately. 

Order Locks and PDUs Installed

Simplify ordering, shipping and installation by requesting eConnect PDUs and locks to be installed in CPI's GF-Series GlobalFrame® or F-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets before they leave the factory. Configure a cabinet with locks and PDUs installed using the Product Configurator.
