by Brianna Crandall — July 22, 2016 — Southco, Inc., a global provider of engineered access solutions, has recently expanded its successful line of electronic rotary locking solutions with the release of its next-generation R4-EM 9 Series Electronic Rotary Latch. The R4-EM 9 Series delivers next-gen electronic latching through microprocessor-controlled actuation, providing intelligent, reliable electronic access.
The 9 Series features expanded intelligence with microprocessor control of all input and output commands, providing expanded programing capability and customization of latch functionality. This lightweight design incorporates an integrated door sensor and extended housing for tamper resistance, while an integrated trigger sensor provides indisputable lock/unlock status reporting.
The 9 Series is available with a “kick out” option that enables lightweight doors and drawers to pop open when the electronic rotary latch is unlocked, and a “pull open” style that detents the cam in the fully closed or open position to prevent unintended door release.
General Manager Steve Spatig explains:
Southco’s R4-EM 9 Series Electronic Rotary Latch incorporates enhanced electronic intelligence along with additional mechanical features, making it an ideal solution for applications that require enhanced remote physical security, such as parcel lockers, medical dispensing equipment and other self-service kiosks.
