Rotary Latch Actuator Combines Stylish Design and Convenient Electronic Locking Functionality

Southco 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, 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.

Southco’s AC-11-EM Rotary Latch Actuator with electronic locking provides a convenient upgrade to electronic access control. The rounded edge provides a sleek look that complements applications where dependable remote actuation of a connected rotary latch is critical. The actuator is also designed to match Southco’s other access hardware solutions, offering a uniform appearance when multiple products are used in a single application.
