Concordville, Pa., May 8, 2019 — Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has recently expanded on its successful line of mechanical actuators with a new version that combines reliable actuation with modern design. Constructed of high-strength, corrosion-resistant materials, the AC-11 Actuator features an ergonomic pull handle that is ideal for remotely actuating a latch in heavy duty equipment applications.
The AC-11 Actuator features an oval bezel that complements modern industrial styling and a flush mount design that minimizes protrusion. The pull handle can be easily actuated with a gloved hand, providing remote actuation of a latch in challenging environments. Available in both locking and non-locking versions, the AC-11 provides direct, single or multipoint actuation of a connected latch.
When combined with Southco R4 Rotary Latches and AC Cables, AC Actuators create a complete Rotary Latching System that provides secure, reliable remote latching for interior and exterior applications.
