Southco® has recently launched its EA-A06 USB Controller, which allows the independent, computer-controlled operation of up to 14 different electronic locks or other devices when connected to a standard computer USB port. With independently labeled connections for latch inputs, the EA-A06 allows simple plug-and-play installation that can be integrated with any Southco electromechanical latch solution.
The EA-A06 features a user-friendly interface with simple programming commands that can be used with existing customer software, simplifying the configuration, operation and monitoring of the electronic devices through a single computer – eliminating the need for additional access hardware or devices. The EA-A06, in conjunction with an existing computer, also enables the user to remotely track and record access to electronic locks, providing an audit trail that can be used to help demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, HITECH and Sarbanes-Oxley.
Field Applications Engineer Sonny Van Ngo adds, “When connected to an existing computer, the EA-A06 USB Controller allows remote, secure access control and monitoring of any electronic lock, making it an ideal solution for industries that must comply with regulatory requirements.”
