This week Design News announced its Annual Best New Products Awards finalists and winners. Two Southco products were named as finalists in the Fastening and Joining Category; The Electromechanical Swing Handle and the Dynamic Mounting Arm.
Southco’s H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle provides efficient electronic access security to datacenter cabinets and industrial enclosures. Integrated sensors and multiple output signals provide data for both local and remote monitoring. The H3-EM can be integrated with industry standard rack monitoring solutions with a simple retrofit. The efficient microprocessor-controlled gear motor design ensures minimal power consumption and multi-event status reporting.
Southco’s AV-D30 Dynamic Mounting Arm provides integrated positioning technology that enables the arm to function efficiently in applications needing a robust, stable solution. The constant torque, user-friendly positioning features full tilt, swivel and swing out adjustments. Additionally, the arm can withstand touch forces, vibration and heavy loading.
While neither product won the category, our design teams are honored to have two of our new products selected as finalists by Design News. We look forward to competing again next year!
