Electronic latches that are easy to install and manage, with no special wiring or programming required

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. If you want to learn more about the Self-Contained electronic latches we carry, you can click on the link to the Southco Products above or visit Southco’s website for more specific product details.

Your electronic solution is waiting!

If you’re interested in learning more about these self-contained electronic access solutions, please let us know!  Just call us, use our Contact Form or hit CHAT WITH US at the bottom of this page and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.  If you’re interested, and if it’s possible, we can also arrange an in-person demonstration.
