  • R4-EM 1 & 2 Series Electronic Rotary Latches
    Easy to install and maintain, the 1 & 2 Series R4-EM delivers the convenience of electronic access control with the security of a proven, robust, all-metal rotary latch design in a compact, integrated package. Easy push-to-close operation and electronic actuation simplify access across a wide variety of applications. An optional microswitch provides feedback on latch status, and a delayed re-lock version keeps a door unlocked for manual opening/closing cycles. A gear-motor drive distinguishes the R4-EM latch from competitive solenoid driven electromechanical latches – with lower power requirements, higher load capability, and a better feel to latch operation. The delayed re-lock version provides the flexibility of controlling the unlock time while monitoring remotely with an integral microswitch option.
  • R4-EM 4 & 6 Series Electronic Rotary Latches
    Convenient and reliable, the 4 & 6 Series R4-EM delivers proven electronic access control in a compact, lightweight integrated package. Easy push-to-close operation and simple installation make the R4-EM ideal for transitioning from mechanical to electronic access. An optional microswitch provides feedback on latch status. The R4-EM is available in both auto re-lock and delayed re-lock versions for added flexibility. The 4 & 6 Series R4-EM features a microprocessor controlled gearmotor with low power requirements. Multiple mounting configurations and a compact size afford easy integration into existing designs. The latch eliminates key management and accepts access control signals from a variety of devices including key fobs, keypads and proximity cards.
  • R4-EM 5 & 7 Series Electronic Rotary Latches
