Heavy Duty Latching Solenoid

This solenoid example utilizes a 100 ms pulse to latch and hold in position using a permanent magnet.

This solenoid was latched with a 100ms pulse and held in position with a permanent magnet (so that no power was consumed). A 100 ms pulse of opposite polarity de-latched the solenoid and returned the spring to the armature.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast response
  • High latching force
  • High clamping force
  • Low power consumption
  • Can be designed for specific load holding capability
  • Can be designed to configure with customer power requirements

Improving Welding Clamps with Latching Technology

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.

Our engineers begin by designing with 3D CAD and performing electromagnetic and fluid dynamic analysis with state-of-the-art finite element analysis software. Every design is engineered and tested in our lab to meet our customers’ specifications.

Increased Performance

Precise control with high accuracy through tighter tolerances. Reducing friction and inefficiencies provides extremely low hysteresis.

Lighter Weight

Multiple variables in the design and manufacturing process are optimized to reduce overall weight and size of the solenoid or valve.

Minimized Footprint

Custom solenoids can be designed to utilize the best control scheme for your application, resulting in a minimized footprint.

Limited Power Consumption

Latching technology in solenoid and valve design minimizes overall power consumption.

Extreme Environments

Can be designed to meet extreme environments that include moisture, dirt/dust, vibration and/or extreme temperature requirements.

Built-in Safety

Failsafe modes are designed into solenoids and valves utilizing integrated electronic controls.
