self-contained electronic access solutions by Southco

SELF-CONTAINED electronic access solutions now available from Southco!

If your customer is asking you for options that include electronic latches, we can help!  Southco’s self-contained electronic access solutions are easy to install and just as easy to set up.  Shown here are two options that are entirely self-contained, that require no special wiring or programming.

Electronic latches built for life in the real world

These latches were designed for ease of installation and long battery life.  Rated for 50,000 cycles with only 3 AA batteries, you sure don’t have to worry too much about power requirements.  In fact, ALL of Southco’s electronic latches are designed to be extremely energy efficient.  But even if the batteries do run out, you can always actuate the latch with the Manager Key that supplies its own power. While “electronic locks” are becoming more popular every day for end users, self-contained electronic access is important for manufacturers. When you consider the cost of adding wiring, programming and management of electronic latches, this kind of simplicity adds a lot of value to your product.
