Residual Magnetism Latching Solenoid

This latching solenoid is a linear on-off design with a built in latching feature that holds the solenoid in the energized position. The solenoid’s latching feature does not require the use of continuous current or permanent magnets to hold in the selected position. Strokes and latching force are flexible depending upon solenoid size.
