Three-Position Push Pull Solenoid

This continuous duty “three-position” solenoid example features a push-pull from a center position and allows for a tighter tolerance.

This continuous duty, three-position solenoid features a push-pull from a center position. When power is applied, the plunger extends; when power is removed, the plunger returns to the center position. If power is applied to an additional lead, the plunger retracts to a third position and holds until power is removed. The design allows for a tighter tolerance and eliminates the need to setup and adjust two springs.

Features and Benefits

  • Push-pull from center position
  • Lower power consumption
  • Increased performance in smaller package
  • High cycle life

Three-Position Solenoid Helps Improve Vehicle Emissions

An automotive company needed a solution to open and close the valve in their fuel vapor recirculation system. TLX Technologies designed an effective three-position solenoid.

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.
