Long-Stroke Latching Solenoid

This latching solenoid needs no power to hold in either position and runs efficiently on 4 AA batteries.

The solenoid is energized to move to the latched position with a short voltage pulse. Once the voltage is removed, the permanent magnet maintains the solenoid in the latched position. The solenoid is spring returned to the de-latched position by providing a short, reverse polarity voltage pulse, which cancels the permanent magnet field. Strokes and forces are flexible depending upon solenoid size.

Features and Benefits

Solenoids Help Control Injection Molding

A manufacturer of foam injection molding machines needed to refine their product to better suit a client that made seats for automotive OEMS. TLX engineers designed a custom latching solenoid that operated in high temperatures and provided the precise control required for the molding process.

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.
