These swing handles are fitted with a cam and a cylinder (circular) lock.
The gearbox extends and retracts the locking rods and most types of swing handle are also fitted with a cam, to provide three point locking. The cam can be flat or cranked and there is a very wide range of lengths to choose from. Most gearboxes are durable die-cast zinc alloy, although some types are polyamide to achieve a competitive price.
Most of the swing handles with a cylinder lock can be specified with one of three levels of security. For applications requiring excellent security, such as 19” rack server cabinets, telecommunications centre enclosures, high value electronics enclosures, highway control cabinets and high value tool cabinets, the lock features Camlock’s patented mechanism designed to prevent unauthorized duplicate keys being cut in key cutting outlets. These high security locks have excellent resistance to picking and an anti-drill centre for added security. The mechanism offers over 500,000 different key combinations, allowing unique combinations on batches of keyed alike locks. The all-brass lock construction and polished chrome finish provide superb durability.
Where a moderate level of security is required, a cylinder lock can be specified. The cylinders are die-cast zinc alloy (DIN-EN 1774-ZnAl4Cu1), operated by a flat key and are available keyed alike, keyed to differ or master keyed.
For frequently used applications that require very low security, most of these swing handles can be specified with one of a range of popular industry-standard drivers, that provides a simple and convenient fastening.
In total, Camlock Systems offers over 30 types of high quality swing handles and multi-point locks designed specifically for electrical & electronic equipment (EEE) panels and cabinets, machinery & generator covers, rack cabinets and other industrial enclosures.
The choice extends to the materials used, which are polyamide, die-cast zinc alloy or stainless steel, and to the finishes. Most types are available black powder coated or bright chrome plated. The majority of items are IP65-rated, a standard that measures the ability of products to exclude moisture and particulates from enclosures.
Camlock specified this range of products from Mesan, which has been serving the industrial enclosure sector for over 30 years and exports to over 35 countries. Like Camlock Systems, Mesan is accredited to ISO 9001 : 2008.
