Here you will find the most important information about TANlock 3
What is TANlock?
TANlock is a mechatronic locking system for server cabinets.
The advantage of TANlock is that it can be installed and operated independently of the system. This means that neither server cabinets from specific manufacturers nor additional software is required. This makes retrofitting very simple. Therefore, TANlock can be easily integrated into existing IT infrastructures.
TANlock is produced by FATH Mechatronics GmbH in Spalt, near Nuremberg.
For further information, please visit the company’s website: www.fath-mechatronics.de
What is delivered with the TANlock?
The scope of delivery of the TANlock includes a ready-to-use server cabinet lock including installation material.
All you need to do is mount the TANlock on the server cabinet and put it into operation. All necessary software is already installed on the TANlock.
How is the TANlock supplied with power?
The TANlock 3 is supplied with power via PoE (Power-over-Ethernet).
If PoE is already present in your server rack, simply connect the TANlock 3 to a PoE network port.
If you do not have any PoE ports available, a PoE injector is required.
You are welcome to contact FATH Mechatronics for advice.
What do I do if the electricity fails?
Each TANlock is equipped with an emergency power connection.
A USB-C socket provides the possibility to supply the TANlock with power in case of a power failure.
Alternatively, the TANlock can be ordered with “Mechanical Override”.
In this case, the housing is expanded and equipped with a DIN locking cylinder. Key opening is possible at any time, even without power supply.
Each key opening is logged.
Does the TANlock require additional equipment?
In itself, each TANlock can be used from its packaging and is ready for use.
However, for reliable monitoring of your server cabinet door with the TANlock, we recommend using door contacts. These can be connected directly to the TANlock.
A programming cable is required for configurations that go beyond the basic configuration or firmware updates.
Managing the TANlock is also possible without this cable.
What adaptation possibilities offers the TANlock?
The TANlock is designed in such a way that it can be easily mounted on the majority of server cabinets. If you own server cabinets from Rittal or Vertiv, you will need an adapter to mount and use the TANlock.
These adapters can also be obtained from FATH Mechatronics. If no adapter is available for your cabinet yet, FATH Mechatronics also designs and manufactures the adapters on customer request.
In order to guarantee the highest possible security level, the authentication modules of TANlock 3 can be exchanged even after installation and initial operation.
