Southco, Inc., a global provider of engineered access solutions, has introduced two new options to its heavy-duty R4 Rotary Latch line, offering an anti-vibration feature and an integrated cable-mounting bracket solution.
Southco’s new R4-30 Rotary Latch additions dampen noise from vibration and simplify cable mounting for applications requiring remote latching. The latch with an integrated bumper holds the latch striker between the cam and bumper, eliminating the potential for unwanted noise and vibration for applications in motion. It’s available with any of the R4-30 configurations
The R4-30 with cable-mounting bracket is available for bottom lever solutions and enables cables to easily incorporate into the rotary system, without needing to buy and install a separate cable bracket.
The R4-30 Rotary Latch with the integrated bumper and cable-mounting bracket is available with high-strength steel and corrosion-resistant stainless steel construction. It features single-stage or two-stage engagement, supporting increased operator safety by eliminating false latching conditions in heavy-duty equipment applications.
Southco’s latch systems provide a reliable solution to secure panels with push to close convenience, offering concealed latching at one or more points. When combined with Southco’s AC Actuators and Cables, R4 Rotary Latches create a complete latching system, providing secure, remote latching for interior and exterior applications.
“The R4-30 Rotary Latch with the integrated bumper prevents buzz, squeak and rattle in off-highway, transportation, and industrial machinery applications, creating better end user experiences,” says Cindy Bar, Southco’s global product manager. “The integrated bracket simplifies cable mounting, reducing the time, investment and effort needed to integrate cables into the latching system.”
