Manual Reset Latching Solenoid

The extremely robust design of this latching solenoid example eliminates the durability failure modes exhibited by standard U-frame designs.

This latching solenoid can hold in either position without the constant application of current, making it ideal for power interrupt switches and recloser systems for standby power units. Expert design means this component has high holding force, is temperature stable and can release at -40°C in less than 12 msec. The durability of this solenoid eliminates failure modes common in standard U-frame designs. Size and configuration of the unit can be customized to fit a variety of systems.

Latching Technology Used to Isolate Power Faults

A manufacturer of high voltage electrical power distribution equipment needed a solution to actuate a fault-interrupting device. TLX Technologies designed a durable solenoid with a manual reset feature.

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.
