Latching Solenoid with Burst Pin

This latching solenoid example was designed to replace pyrotechnic burst devices in fire suppression systems.

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. Strokes, latching force and port size can all be modified to fit the cylinder being burst.

Features and Benefits

  • High latching forces
  • Fast response
  • Low power consumption
  • Low pressure drop/high-flow capability
  • 15 year life guarantee
  • Options: Manual release button, Reset tool

Improving the Delivery of Fire-Extinguishing Media

TLX designed a fast, high-latching force component to replace pyrotechnic burst devices in fire suppression applications

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.
