J.W. Winco, Inc. now offers GN 516 Rotary Clamping Latches in metric sizes.
These RoHS compliant components have a closing mechanism which transfers the rotary movement of the operating element (key) into a 90° turn and then into a 6 mm linear stroke. This mechanism is designed for common applications such as making a tight and vibration-proof interlock in the end position (retaining position) in connection with an elastic element (door/casing seal).
The lock housing is zinc die-cast, and the locating ring is zinc die-cast and plastic coated with a black textured finish. The latch is zinc plated, blue passivated steel. Seven types of operating elements are offered, including triangular spindle, 7 mm square spindle, 8 mm square spindle, double bit spindle, knurled knob, wing knob, and lever. The latter three types have handles of plastic (Polyamide PA), matte black, with matte light gray cover cap. Each type is offered in 22 sizes to cover latch spacings (retaining zones) of between 17 and 63 mm.
