Fresh vegetables from the vending machine – and on a grand scale. This was the task facing the French system manufacturer BERTHOLON SA. From scratch, the family-owned company designed and built one of the biggest food vending machines in the world with 160 compartments. However, in order to guarantee the reliable opening and closing of these compartments even at low temperatures of 4ºC, the engineers relied on the locking solution of the industry expert EMKA.
The individual compartments are secured with the electronic single-point latch system with emergency opening (3000-U301-02). In the “Basic delayed Re-Lock” version, the compartments only open when external power is supplied.
