Sealed Electronic Actuator Simplifies Upgrade from Mechanical Latching

July 25, 2018 Rachel Pilgren-Kane

Southco has recently added to its line of electronic actuators with a sealed version that simplifies the upgrade from mechanical to electronic actuation. Capable of accommodating higher mechanical loads, the AC-EM 10 Electronic Actuator facilitates the electronic actuation of Southco’s R4-10 Rotary Latch series and other latching mechanisms.

Southco’s versatile AC-EM 10 Electronic Actuator delivers high efficiency, accommodating heavier loads with minimal current draw. When connected to an electronic access control device, the AC-EM 10 Electronic Actuator can be used to remotely actuate a mechanical latch to open or unlock a door or panel.

With its small profile design and efficient gear motor operation, the AC-EM 10 Electronic Actuator is ideal for concealed applications where physical space constraints are a challenge. An economical solution for remotely actuating rotary locks and latches, the AC-EM 10 is tested to IP55 for water and dust protection and can be easily retrofitted using a standard cable connection for manual override.

The AC-EM 10 Electronic Actuator delivers an efficient and cost-effective solution for electronically actuating rotary latches for a variety of applications where concealed access is necessary, including UTV storage, ATMs and propane lockers.
