Electronic access control technology continues to evolve as markets demand more rugged and secure enclosures in medical applications, datacenters, off-highway vehicles and outdoor storage areas. Southco now offers the H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle, a latch that features an advanced electromechanical lock that typically provides advantages over mechanical and solenoid-driven locks. Because the latch is gear motor-driven, it only requires power at the moment of actuation and can handle higher loads while using less than 200 milliamps of operating current.

The H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle is constructed of glass-filled nylon and is ideal for medical carts and enclosures, datacenter racks, off-highway equipment, kiosks, self-service POS systems and storage lockers. Engineers can integrate this latch into enclosure designs to increase physical security and operational reliability.

Southco’s new electronic latch also features integrated sensors and multiple signal outputs that send data for local and remote monitoring. The H3-EM can be integrated with industry-standard rack control and monitoring solutions with a simple retrofit for addressable remote access control over the web. Additionally, the microprocessor-controlled gear motor can generate an activity log.

The H3-EM can be combined with other access control devices to construct a self-contained electronic access solution. It fits industry standard panel preparations and accommodates both left and right doors. Southco can customize the H3-EM with different colors, logos or installation configurations to suit a customer’s applications needs.
