Medicart – Options for locking

 In the context of medication security, the ability to lock medication carts is becoming increasingly important, as well as controlled access to medication.

Access to the EPR (Electronic Patient Record) is also becoming increasingly important. 

Belintra offers various solutions: 

  • Integrated IT = MEDICART with USB CONTROLLED ACCESS (1 zone or 2 zones). 
  • No integrated IT = MEDICART with keypad, electronic or mechanical Salto lock, electronic number lock or badge lock 

With every type of lock, an emergency opening is possible at all times. 

Product characteristics

USB controlled lock

The command for opening and closing is given via a USB connection with the built-in PC. With this type of lock 1 or 2 lock plates can be controlled for 1-zone or 2-zone closure. The identification of the users goes through the installed operating system (badge, password, PIN, fingerprint …).

The components to equip the Medicart with IT are the Belintra Powered Back Pack incl. Battery with recommended IT components (Intel® NUC i5 or i3 Mini PC – Neovo X22 Screen or TX22 Touch Screen). For more details, see Belintra IT.


This lock is suitable for Medicart Drawers and Small Medicart Drawers. The keypad is ergonomically integrated into the raised edge of the plastic worktop.

The drawers are opened by entering a 4-digit code. The drawers can close automatically after a set time or manually by re-entering the code.

There is a battery indicator that shows when the battery needs replacing. If the battery has run out completely the drawers can still be opened, but not closed.

Integrated electronic Salto lock

This type of Salto lock is integrated in the Medicart worktop and works automatically. This means that when the badge is presented, the cart opens during a programmable time.

There is battery monitoring where an indication is given when the battery is low. In addition, there is also an LED indication green / red to indicate whether the drawers are open / closed.

The rechargeable battery is included, an external charger and cord are optional.

This lock only applies to Medicart Drawers Standard and Medicart Drawers Small.
