New rotary latch actuator from Southco

Southco's new rotary latch features modern styling and integrated locking functionality

Southco has expanded its range of rotary latch actuators with the arrival of a new version that combines keyless electronic locking with modern design. The company’s AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronic locking functionality is said to eliminate the need for mechanical key access when connected to a remote access controller such as a key fob, or to an existing control system such as a button located within a vehicle’s interior. The new latch features a flush mount oval shape that is designed to complement modern industrial styling. With its recessed handle design, the AC-11-EM is said to ease operation when opening panels and doors with a gloved hand whilst reducing snag and catch points. 

The latch is a heavy duty design and is also corrosion resistant says Southco, offering robust protection for outdoor applications including off-highway entry doors and special vehicle storage panels. The latch is available with a variety of key-locking options and provides direct, single or multipoint actuation of a connected latch.  “The AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronic locking provides machine builders and users with a convenient upgrade to electronic access control,” said Global Product Manager Cindy Bart. “The rounded edge provides a sleek look that complements applications where dependable remote actuation of a connected rotary latch is critical.”
