Miniature U-Frame Solenoid

This example of a continuous duty solenoid is miniature in size but with a relatively long stroke and high force.

This miniature solenoid originally mounted on the PC board of an infrared camera to aid in calibration. Since then, the solenoid has been used with a variety of cameras, blocking and filtering lenses for calibration. Miniature solenoids can be designed as constant current or latching, making them ideal for use in miniature relays, instrumentation, battery operated locks and medical equipment.

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.
