EMKA’S Progam 1000 compact compression latch

The recently announced Program 1000-U852 compact compression latch from EMKA is a great idea for specialist enclosure manufacturers looking for a vibration-resistant locking solution to suit small enclosures with restricted available internal depth.

The 1000-U852 features a very short body – just 18mm deep – and yet manages to provide a full 4.5mm of compression for gasket pull down on the second 90° of rotation, with a distinct over-centre action. Use of industry standard 20mm “rounded square” hole mounting ensures interchangeability with standard quarter-turn latches, plus the benefits of a compression facility.
