New Miniature PCB Mounting Solenoids Designed for Low Power Battery Operation

Bicron's SC0424L (Magnetic Latching) and SC0424N (Non-latching) DC solenoids are open-frame, pull-type solenoids primarily designed for use in battery operated portable equipment and small line powered devices such as gaming machines, circuit breakers, centrifuges, scanners, coin counters, optical equipment, and point-of-sale systems. Optimized design and improved manufacturing processes have enabled the solenoid's efficiency to be increased to make more than 250,000 actuations possible from a single set of four AA battery cells (6Vdc). Dimensions for both the SC0424L and SC0424N are .42"W x .46"H x .95"L (11mm x 12mm x 24mm). A flat face plunger is standard, with other options readily available. Solenoid insulation is rated Class "A" (105°C). Operating temperatures are -20°C to 40°C. Maximum force is 34.8oz. @ .02 inch stroke (10% duty cycle). Solenoid coils are available for operation with 3, 6, 12, or 24 VDC. Both the SC0424L and SC0424N are included in Bicron's "quick turn program", allowing shipment small quantity orders usually within five business days. In addition to Bicron's standard lines, capabilities are offered for custom design solutions from simple standard product modifications to completely unique solutions to special application problems. With both U.S. and off-shore manufacturing facilities, Bicron offers very competitive pricing on virtually all its solenoid designs. About Bicron:
