CHINA – Media OutReach – 1 September 2020 – Southco Asia Ltd., a subsidiary of Southco Inc., a leading global provider of engineered access solutions such as locks, latches, captive fasteners, electronic access solutions and hinges/ positioning technology, has expanded its successful line of rotary latch actuators with a new version that combines keyless electronic locking with modern design.
Southco’s AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronic locking functionality eliminates 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 AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronically controlled locking features a flush mount oval shape that complements modern industrial styling. With its recessed handle design, the AC-11-EM eases operation when opening panels and doors with a gloved hand, while reducing snag and catch points.
Featuring a heavy duty design and corrosion resistant construction, the AC-11-EM provides robust protection for outdoor applications including off-highway entry doors and specialty vehicle storage panels. Available with a variety of key locking options, the AC-11 provides direct, single or multipoint actuation of a connected latch.
“The AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronic locking provides 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.”
