Southco extension to its rotary latch range offers further flexibility and options for designers

1 min read

Southco has recently added a cable splitter accessory to its successful line of Rotary Latch solutions, which allows multiple connected rotary latches to be triggered from a single actuation point. The AC Cable Splitter features built in adjustability and timed release, allowing even more options in the design and integration of rotary latch systems into applications where remote latching is required.

Southco’s AC Cable Splitter provides even greater flexibility in the positioning of the actuation point, allowing two connected rotary latches to be activated by one actuator, or one rotary latch to be activated by two actuators. Additionally, the Cable Splitter provides a timed release facility, allowing one connected rotary latch to be triggered before another, or both rotary latches to be released at the same time. This is useful in applications, for example, where the end user would have two enclosures, stowage lockers, entry doors, drawers etc connected with the AC cable splitter to a single actuator. When operated just one or both latches can be activated depending on the pressure applied to the actuator. Similarly the cable splitter allows simple dual point locking with push to close function applications to be designed with ease.

With its compact design, Southco’s AC Cable Splitter occupies very little space and being made from strong polypropylene and glass filled nylon, the AC Cable Splitter is well suited for abroad range of applications and environments.

The AC Cable Splitter can be combined with Southco’s line of mechanical and electronic actuators, rotary latches and jacketed cables to create a complete ‘plug and play’ rotary latching system.

Rotary latches offer very high strength in a range of options from the miniature through to the heaviest duty applications.
