Latching Solenoids and Latching Solenoid Valves

TLX Technologies designs and manufactures latching solenoids with distinctive magnetic features that allow the solenoids to have equivalent forces while fitting into smaller packages. The difference in size alone has provided many of TLX's customers with a distinct advantage over their competition.
