Southco is expanding its E3 VISE ACTION Compression Latch series with an ergonomic T-handle version that features an integrated padlockable design. The padlockable E3 Compression Latch combines ergonomic operation with enhanced security to provide vibration resistant latching in rugged environments.
Constructed of robust stainless steel, the padlockable E3 offers high corrosion resistance and features a polished finish to complement industrial design. The padlockable E3 is tested to EN61373, the European standard for shock and vibration for railway applications, and meets NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection, making it suitable for a wide variety of applications across industries.
Similar to Southco's standard E3 line, the padlockable version delivers robust, vibration-resistant fastening of heavily gasketed enclosures and is available in a variety of grip lengths. Additionally, the padlockable E3 features the same panel hole prep as the standard series, and is available either with pre-installed cam options to minimize installation time or without to enhance flexibility in modular use.
Global Product Manager Loc Tieu adds: "Southco's newest E3 VISE ACTION Compression Latch features an ergonomic T-handle grip for gloved hand operation, and adds a padlockable design for additional security in rugged, outdoor applications where high strength compression is required."
