Magnetic Latching Solenoids offer stroke lengths to 3 in.

March 31, 2010

Available in package sizes from 3/8 to 3½ in. diameter, Bi-Stable Latching Solenoids come in rotary and linear designs with response time in milliseconds. Single voltage pulses open and close armature resulting in minimal heat rise and no holding power. By utilizing permanent magnet on solenoid pole face, once air gap is closed, solenoid stays in closed position until pulsed in reverse direction, either through secondary coil or reversal in polarity.

Fire Protection Solenoid bursts pressure cylinders.

July 26, 2007

Able to replace pyrotechnic and mechanical actuated systems, Latching Solenoid features hollow pin design that pierces steel sealing disc and allows gas to exit cylinder. Pin is actuated by compressed spring, which is held together in loaded position by permanent magnet latching solenoid, eliminating risks inherent in explosive devices such as accidental discharge ESD. Operated electrically or mechanically, solenoid can puncture up to 200 cylinders prior to being replaced or rebuilt. Read More

Solenoids provide extremely quiet operation.

January 17, 2007

Measuring below 40 dBA in power-ON mode, MagShift® Solenoids ensure no impact at end-of-travel position, thereby eliminating vibration and minimizing noise. When unit is actuated, plunger can travel past electrical ON position. Its construction eliminates residual magnetism, and allows same assembly to be configured as push/pull solenoid for maximum system design flexibility. Read More
