Solenoids Designed For Control-Action Applications Available From SKF(R) Motion Technologies



BETHLEHEM, PA, November 8, 2001 -- A comprehensive line of Mecalectro(TM) linear and rotary solenoids is available from SKF® Motion Technologies to enable fast-moving electrically controlled action for industrial, commercial, and military applications, including process automation, position control, various locking devices, mechanical signaling, and countless others. The product line extends to shotbolts and holding and carrying electromagnets designed to safeguard people and property.

Linear solenoids are available in various types and sizes for the widest range of stroke lengths, force capabilities, and duty cycles. The line of linear solenoids includes specially engineered types for standard, intensive, or heavy-duty applications, as well as bistable linear solenoids and self-holding latching solenoids designed to promote low energy consumption. A line of rotary solenoids (in three series) provides rotation angles of 45-90 degrees.

Shotbolts for locking of doors and other mechanisms can function either with power off (passive safety) or with power on (active safety), depending on type. The line of electromagnets includes safety holding electromagnets to operate shutters and dampers in case of fire and types to control emergency exits and magnetic locks for access control.

All solenoid-related products available from SKF can be customized to satisfy application-specific requirements.
