Southco 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.
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. When 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
