Southco, a global leader in engineered access solutions, has expanded its line of electronic access control solutions with a compact electronic slide bolt that simplifies the upgrade from mechanical to electromechanical latching. 

According to a press release, the new EM-05 4 Series Slide Bolt integrates an electronic lock with latch bolt position sensing and door sensing, allowing for simple monitoring of door and latch status.

Southco’s EM-05 4 Series Electronic Slide Bolt features high energy efficiency, requiring no power draw to maintain its retracted or extended position. With its compact size, the lightweight 4 Series Electronic Slide Bolt can be easily installed in tight spaces and is adaptable to various mounting requirements. Simple to install and operate, the economical 4 Series uses a spring-loaded, gear motor-driven mechanism that provides a secure and reliable alternative to solenoid solutions.

“The new EM-05 4 Series Slide Bolt offers a simple, cost-effective upgrade to electromechanical access control that offers more energy efficiency and reliability than traditional solenoid solutions,” General Manager Steve Spatig says. “With integrated latch bolt position sensing and door sensing, the 4 Series allows simple monitoring of door and latch status for added security.”
