Can I use a padlock with the G Series / SpeedCheck power cabinet?

This article details the option of adding a padlockable latch to the G Series cabinet beacons / SpeedCheck power cabinet.

Product applicability

The following products are compatible with the padlockable latch option:

  • G Series flashing beacons with cabinet (AC or solar): SC315-G, R820-G, R829-G and R247-G
  • SpeedCheck radar speed signs with external power cabinet (AC or solar):
    SPEEDCHECK-15, SPEEDCHECK-18, SPEEDCHECK-AS

 

Starting 2020 Q3, the option for a G Series/SpeedCheck power cabinet padlockable latch is available. The standard offering is a Pelco Type II/Police Type lock.

When specifying your project, let your distributor know that you require the padlockable latch option. Contact Carmanah if you wish to retrofit the padlockable latch option into an existing G Series/SpeedCheck installation. The latest version (as of 2020 Q3) of the cabinet and cabinet door is required for compatibility. This version includes half-shear indents for locating the drill holes for the latch and a slot in the cabinet door for securing the latch.

A small amount of Loctite 220 should be applied to the two screws if installing this kit in the field.

Retrofitting the padlock latch into an existing Type II lock cabinet will require the lock to be removed and a plug installed and secured with a washer and wing nut.
