Compression latch seals to IP65 and provides security for high-vibration applications
07 January 2011
EMKA's 1000 series specialist compression latch seals to IP65 for the locking and sealing of doors, hatches or covers. It is particularly useful for cabinets that are exposed to high vibration. The compression function includes a two-stage operation with direct pull-down on the gasket profile; the 1000 latch has a turn/compress function, which also solves problems where thick extruded gaskets are used or where normal latches would give too tight a compression.
The 1000 series provides 5.5mm of direct pull compression - while looking like any other double-bar or coin slot ¼ turn fastener. The operator makes a first ¼ turn of the key, which positions the latch and a conventional 3mm ramp. The second ¼ turn then generates a “soft landing” with a further 5.5mm compression. Standard EMKA hole form is used so fitment is simple in all situations where traditional ¼ turn fasteners would be expected.
