Compression latch for unusual tasks

Compression latch for unusual tasks EMKA reports that it has developed the 1000 series specialist compression latch which seals to IP65 for the locking of doors, hatches or covers, especially on cabinets that are exposed to high vibration. Compression latches are particularly suitable for this kind of application where they offer a reliable solution for the tight locking of doors, covers or hatchways on compressors, generators, construction and mining equipment, air conditioning, heating and ventilating systems and railway construction equipment. The compression function includes a two-stage operation with direct pull-down on the gasket. The 1000 latch has a turn/compress function which also solves problems where thick gaskets are used or where normal latches would give too tight a compression. The 1000 series provides 5.5mm of direct pull compression. The operator makes a first quarter turn of the key which positions the latch and a conventional ramp. The second quarter turn then generates a ‘soft landing’ with a further 5.5mm compression.
