A manual reset latching solenoid was used to in order to control airbag inflation based on variables programmed into the system that determined the severity of the accident.
A manufacturer sought a solution for disconnecting the battery of a hybrid car during an accident, without the possibility of the battery connecting again. TLX designed a custom latching solenoid that used residual magnetism instead of a permanent magnet; meaning once the solenoid unlatched, it would not re-latch without applying power.
A manufacturer needed to replace the pneumatically powered clamps that held material for welding. A custom latching solenoid provided both the locking and latching functions the manufacturer required. Permanent magnets latched the solenoids in a retracted position without consuming power.
For power companies, immediacy is essential. Maintenance, faults in a line and component errors must be handled quickly to prevent equipment damage and keep their system, and our lives, functioning.
A manufacturer of metal detection equipment required a component to activate a failsafe system when metal was detected in the product stream. The solution needed an extremely fast response time to immediately stop equipment when metal was detected.
A manufacturer of running shoes wanted their shoes to automatically adjust to the speed of the wearer, providing additional comfort and support. TLX designed a miniature solenoid air valve with magnetic latching technology to integrate into the shoe’s cushioning system.
Smart classrooms provide teachers with the tools to give students a more enriching learning experience. While these high-tech resources provide a more robust learning experience, they also create additional security concerns.
A robust latching solenoid was designed with a manual reset feature for a manufacturer of medium-voltage power distribution equipment who needed a solution for actuating the fault interrupter in a padmount switchgear.
A leading computer manufacturer needed a security device to prevent hardware theft. TLX Technologies decided a two-position latching solenoid was the best solution because of its low power requirement.
A manufacturer needed an automatic compression release valve for a motorcycle engine. TLX Technologies designed a solenoid valve that met all the requirements and reduced total vehicle cost.
