Surface mount rotary actuation remote unlock accessory

Southco opens up new possibilities in remote and multi-point locking with its new cable pull accessory for AC-15 rotary latch actuators.

Although other cable pull accessories have been available for some time, Southco's new remote cable release accessory for AC-15 rotary latch actuators is unique in that it supports handle mounted multi-point locking systems surface. With a low interior profile, easy installation and durable, corrosion-resistant components, the AC-15 remote cable release accessory is a versatile solution for a variety of applications.

Surface mount multi-point cable pull

Although cable-operated multi-point latching is nothing new, older surface-mount actuator systems only supported direct actuation or pulling of a single cable. Southco’s new cable pull accessory opens two latches with a single pull of the handle. This gives designers more freedom to position the handle where they want on the exterior of the panel, and provides more support for large, flexible panels where a single latch is not enough.

Enhanced security

Remote locking also makes it more difficult for intruders to access a compartment. When the actuator and latch are separated, the system is more resistant to tampering because it is difficult to tell where the locking point is from the outside. Multi-point locking further improves door security with multiple locking points.

Low interior profile

Southco says the AC-15 remote release cable pull accessory is ideal for applications where space is limited. You don’t want the interior of your compartment to be occupied only by the door latch. The system has a low interior profile thanks to its surface mounted actuator and low profile cable accessory. So, designers have more space to use for what they really need, or more storage space for whoever opens the compartment.

Durable and versatile

The AC-15 Rotary Latch Actuator stands out because it offers an extremely durable and versatile solution for large panels that must withstand long-term exposure to the elements. The fiberglass-reinforced nylon housing provides the first level of protection for the interior mechanism. The remote cable release accessory itself consists of a pre-galvanized steel pulley sub-assembly and an aluminium barrel bracket, allowing it to withstand harsh weather conditions. The AC-15 rotary actuator is available in a range of locking and non-locking options, making it a versatile solution that can suit many applications.
