Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has further expanded its successful line of rotary latching solutions with the launch of two new heavy-duty, paddle-style actuators that provide multiple points of actuation, allowing two connected rotary latches to be activated remotely by one actuator.
Southco’s AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators are constructed from corrosion resistant materials, making them well-suited for exterior applications that require robust performance. Available in polished chrome or black powder-coat finishes, these actuators feature a rugged, contoured paddle design for enhanced grip, key locking security and secure push-to-close functionality.
AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators are an ideal solution for doors and panels that require remote actuation of several connected rotary latches. When opening a large access panel on a piece of Off-Highway equipment for instance, the end user can easily release both latches at the same time by activating one actuator, facilitating operator entry. Combined with Southco R4 Rotary Latches and AC Cables, these Actuators create a complete Rotary Latching system, providing secure, reliable, remote latching for interior and exterior applications.
Global Product Manager Cynthia Bart adds, “With their high-strength, corrosion-resistant paddle-style design, Southco’s AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators provide remote release of multiple connected rotary latches for simplified access in challenging environments.”
