Low-Profile Latching Solenoid Lock

This two-position, latching solenoid lock offers zero power consumption in both the engaged and disengaged position.

This solenoid lock provides a low-profile package size in relation to the relatively long stroke of the locking pin, allowing for flexibility in applications where space is limited but strong lockout load is essential.

Designed as a two-position, latching solenoid, the lock only requires a short pulse of power to change states. The use of latching technology in the solenoid allows for zero power consumption in both the engaged and disengaged position.

Several additional features integrated into this patent-pending design include supervision of the locking pin position and slam latch functionality. The supervision of the locking pin monitors its position providing feedback of the solenoid lock’s current state. This feature gives a remote controller additional visibility when the solenoid lock is integrated into your system.
