Constant-torque position-control hinges from Southco create versatile options for
precise positioning of hinged panels in a variety of applications. Reliable positioning torque eliminates the need for secondary mechanical supports, while their slim profile accommodates narrow packaging designs for handheld electronics and other consumer products.
The CEMA ST Series provides positioning torque in compact, rugged packages with smooth and consistent operation. The all-metal ST Series uses hardened steel components so they maintain consistent torque performance without maintenance.
Torque can be equal in both rotation directions, or with higher torque in one direction. Stock torque ranges extend from micro-torque levels of 0.35 kg-cm to 51 kg-cm. All models also provide zero-backlash operation to enhance the user's tactile experience.
They measure only 7 mm long and with a 4 mm diameter. For heavy duty applications, the ST-12 Series offers torque values up to 100 kg-cm per pair. Maximum working loads range from 200 to 1,200 N. For more information, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/4933-514.
