There are two InfraSolution ‘in the box’ options, the InfraBox 820 and the InfraBox 840. The 820 package includes two (front/ rear) SmartCard electromagnetic rack handles/cable harnesses and two SmartCards. The InfraBox 840 package has all the 820 features plus an additional 8 X RJ45 expansion ports that allow the user to control or monitor SmartPDUs and / or control InfraCool fan units via a Cat6 cable. Typically you can monitor PDUs amperage as well as remotely switching power sockets on and off via IP using the same GUI software. There are also 2 X RJ11 ports that provide an interface for digital temperature and humidity sensors.
The SmartCard handle is designed for use with either inductive, mechanical or optical door opening / closing sensor and the SmartCards themselves can either be HID or Mifare compatible. It is also compatible with enclosure industry standards in terms of its footprint and mounting dimensions enabling retrofitting to most existing enclosures. The handle has a built in digital temperature sensor and for security back up it is supplied with mechanical keys.
To complete the package Austin Hughes offers a standalone system including a Matrix Server and an IP extender. This allows the user to remotely access the InfraSolution network independently of the main operating system.
