SOUTHCO Fasteners has launched a new line of cam locks designed specifically for panels that require secure key-locking or manual access without compression.
The new cam locks offer smooth, consistent operation with a modern, stylised appearance.
They are durable and are suitable for applications that must meet demanding the NEMA 4 and IP66 requirements, where dust, dirt, and liquid contaminants are an issue.
The distinctive styling of the locks complements modern enclosure and cabinet design, as well as other Southco access hardware, allowing for a consistent look throughout an application.
Standard finishes for the latches include chrome plate or black powder coat. They feature a stainless steel lock cover for scratch resistance and an O-ring for a complete seal of the internal latch components.
Available in two styles, the latches operate with a fraction of a turn. The manual-operated wing-head style offers a detent in both the open and closed positions, providing a positive indication of opened/closed status.
The second style provides multiple key-codes for secure, restricted access. An over-moulded key cover with custom logo imprinting is available.
Four standard cam offsets are available to accommodate a wide grip range. Each cam latch can be installed with positive or negative offset for even more flexibility.
Additional options in the housing length can help accommodate various panel thicknesses and application differences.
Southco cam locks are also available in either clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation for left-and right-hand installations. The latches install quickly into a standard three-quarter inch double-D shaped hole.
