Miniature Manual Reset Latching Solenoid

This latching solenoid example is manually actuated and holds without the use of power making it ideal for applications requiring low power consumption.

This latching solenoid is manually actuated from the de-latched to the latched position. Once in the latched position, a permanent magnet field is used to hold the solenoid in position. A short voltage or current pulse cancels the magnet field, and returns the solenoid to the de-latched position. Strokes and forces are flexible depending upon solenoid size.

Controlling Airbags with Solenoids

A manual reset latching solenoid was used to in order to control airbag inflation based on variables programmed into the system that determined the severity of the accident.

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.
