New Compact Actuator Enables Electronic Actuation of Mechanical Latches

April 5, 2018 Rachel Pilgren-Kane

 

Southco has expanded its line of electronic access solutions with a compact electronic actuator that simplifies the upgrade from mechanical to electronic access. The AC-EM 05 Electronic Actuator offers an economical option for achieving electronic actuation of Southco’s R4-05 Micro Rotary Latch series and other mechanical latches.

When connected to an electronic access control device, the AC-EM 05 Electronic Actuator can be used to actuate a mechanical latch to remotely open or unlock a door or panel. With its small profile design and efficient gear motor operation, the AC-EM 05 Electronic Actuator is ideal for concealed applications where physical space constraints are a challenge.

The AC-EM 05 Electronic Actuator can be easily paired with Southco’s R4-05 Micro Rotary Latch series or any other comparable mechanism to provide electronic access control in limited space applications.
