Latching Solenoid for Fire Suppression System

TLX designed this component to replace pyrotechnic burst devices in fire suppression applications. The solenoid remains in the latched position until receiving a release signal. At this point, the solenoid drives a burst pin into a compressed gas cylinder, which releases pressure through internal ports.
