Performing in storage compartments or access doors for vehicles and medical, electronics, self-service, and industrial equipment, Southco’s R4-EM rotary latch allows for electronic access. The 2.56" × 2.72" × 0.75" interconnect installs with two bolts and has all-metal construction. The unit operates from 12 VDC to 24 VDC with a current draw during actuation of <500 mA at 12 VDC. The product’s microprocessor control accepts electronic actuation signals, including proximity cards or RF key fobs, hard-wired numeric keypads or swipe-card terminals, smart-reader devices, biometric devices, and remote computer or network security system signals. An integral microswitch option is available to provide a "latch opened/latch closed" status signal for remote monitoring.
