Compact, Battery-Powered Solenoids

A manufacturer required a compact solenoid actuator to operate a low pressure gas valve in an outdoor patio heater. A custom open frame latching solenoid provided the compact design while using almost no power, making it ideally suited for battery operation.

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.
