The M3 system uses multiple over-center latch mechanisms to provide the ultimate in consistent compression along the entire edge of an enclosure door. Available with multiple choices of stylish, flush-handle actuators, it can be installed to meet industry standards for environmental or EMC sealing applications.
A complete M3 latching system consists of an actuator, two or more remote compression latches, and one or two hexagonal rod(s). The hex-shaped drive rods run the length of the cabinet door to enable you to drive multiple compression latches simultaneously from one actuation point.
Multiple latch points can be positioned anywhere along the hex drive rod
Each remote latch point provides 5 mm (.20") of compression
Easy to operate with a straight pull on the actuator handle
Protection of latch mechanisms inside of gasketed seal is suitable for outdoor use
Available with multiple choices of hand-, tool-, or key-operated actuator styles
Latch mechanisms offer adjustable grip dimensions to suit application
Optional keepers are available to provide grip ranges from 15 mm (.59") to 30 mm (1.18")
Lift-handle actuator offers added option of padlock hasp to existing built-in locking mechanisms
Optional gaskets available for environmental or EMC sealing
