Magnetic Locking Solenoid

Latching solenoids provide an excellent solution for applications requiring a fast response time and low power consumption.

A short voltage pulse moves this solenoid to the latched position. Once voltage is removed, a permanent magnet keeps the solenoid in the latched position. Another short, reverse polarity pulse cancels the permanent magnetic field, returning the solenoid to the de-latched position. The solenoid can be configured for either a push or pull operation, with flexible stroke and force depending upon solenoid size.

Locking Solenoids for Metal Detection Systems

A manufacturer of metal detection equipment required a component to activate a failsafe system when metal was detected in the product stream. The solution needed an extremely fast response time to immediately stop equipment when metal was detected.

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.
