New Actuator Features Convenient Electronic Lock/Unlock Function

Southco has expanded its successful line of actuators with a keyless electronic version designed for rugged applications. Southco’s AC-10-EM Actuator with Electronic Lock/Unlock functionality eliminates the need for mechanical key access when connected to a remote access controller, such as a key fob, or to an existing control system, such as a button located within a vehicle’s interior.

Southco’s AC-10-EM Actuator with Electronic Lock/Unlock features a heavy duty design and corrosion resistant construction, providing robust protection for outdoor applications including off-highway doors, bus baggage doors and specialty vehicle storage panels. With its recessed handle and flush mount paddle design, the AC-10-EM eases operation when opening panels and doors with a gloved hand, while reducing snag and catch points.

The AC-10-EM Actuator with Electronic Lock/Unlock provides a convenient upgrade to electronic access control. The actuator’s corrosion-resistant construction makes it an ideal solution for outdoor applications that require robust performance and remote actuation. The actuator is also designed to match Southco’s other access hardware solutions, offering a uniform appearance when multiple products are used in a single application.
