Vandal-resistant swing handles are sealed for outdoor use

FDB Panel Fittings can now provide IP65 sealed swing handles with enhanced security for use on electrical, electronic and telecommunications cabinets.

These fittings are designed for applications where security is a significant concern, especially when cabinets are exposed and accessible to the general public and for outdoor installations exposed to the weather where sealing is important.

The handles feature electromechanical operation, with anti-vandal design features and reinforced construction such that they comply with the European DIN V ENV 1630 Class II standard security test. This standard relates to the resistance level of doors against force using tools of class WK2, such as screwdrivers, pliers and wedges. Two versions are available, one with single lock cylinder and the other with dual cylinders to permit opening with either one of two keys. Exceptionally fine tolerances prevent insertion of tools.

Operation requires a power supply or mechanical activation which may be provided under control of an existing central access management system, thereby enabling maintenance of an event log and update of access protocols. An LED indicates when the handle is ready to be opened and remains in that condition for 20 seconds with locked/unlocked status displayed on the LED.
