Southco has expanded its line of electronic access control solutions with a compact electronic slide bolt that simplifies the upgrade from mechanical to electromechanical latching. The new EM-05 4 Series Slide Bolt integrates an electronic lock with latch bolt position sensing and door sensing, allowing for simple monitoring of door and latch status.
Southco’s EM-05 4 Series Electronic Slide Bolt features high energy efficiency, requiring no power draw to maintain its retracted or extended position. With its compact size, the lightweight 4 Series Electronic Slide Bolt can be easily installed in tight spaces and is adaptable to various mounting requirements. Simple to install and operate, the economical 4 Series uses a spring-loaded, gear motor-driven mechanism that provides a secure and reliable alternative to solenoid solutions in high-volume dispensing and storing applications.
General manager, Steve Spatig, said: “The new EM-05 4 Series Slide Bolt offers a simple, cost-effective upgrade to electromechanical access control that offers more energy efficiency and reliability than traditional solenoid solutions. With integrated latch bolt position sensing and door sensing, the 4 Series allows simple monitoring of door and latch status for added security.”
