Miniature Latching Solenoid

TLX designed a miniature latching solenoid to help calibrate small digital or infrared camera systems on front- and rear-facing vehicle detection devices. A flag attached to the solenoid temporarily blocks light to the lens, providing a known surface to calibrate the camera. This small component can be fabricated as a constant current or latching solenoid with push or pull operation.
