Pull Type Locking Solenoid

This example of a continuous duty solenoid remains in the locked position utilizing no power.

This continuous duty solenoid, which requires no power to hold in the locked position, was originally designed for a computer desk lock application. When power is applied to the solenoid, the armature is pulled in, unlocking the mechanism. Once power is removed, the mechanism locks again. The design can be engineered for use with either an active or passive key system.

Features and Benefits

  • Compact design
  • Fast response
  • Low power consumption
  • High side load locking capability
  • Can be configured as a push or pull action
  • Can be designed to configure with customer power requirements

Securing Expensive Classroom Equipment

Smart classrooms provide teachers with the tools to give students a more enriching learning experience. While these high-tech resources provide a more robust learning experience, they also create additional security concerns.

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.
