Southco expands its R4 Rotary Latch series with external rotor offering
The R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor from Southco brings enhanced performance for medium-duty applications. It features an integrated mounting bracket that simplifies installation and a concealed rotary mechanism that improves durability in applications where remote actuation is required, states the company.
This is billed as a compact solution for applications that require concealed mounting and remote actuation of a door or panel. An in-line trigger and external rotor feature provide robust latching for interior or exterior enclosures and compartments, making it a viable option for off-highway, truck and bus & coach applications.
Constructed in corrosion-resistant steel, the R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor provides durable performance in high-vibration environments, while also protecting against exposure to dust and dirt. Two-stage latching provides secure and positive latching at low closing forces, with push-to-close convenience.
Global product manager Cindy Bart adds: “Southco’s R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor provides new levels of design flexibility to OEMs, particularly for exterior panels on buses and motor coaches. The R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor provides secure, hidden latching and remote actuation, while also simplifying the installation process.”
