New Actuator for Hazardous Locations

– While supervised latching solenoid actuators meet the actuation needs of most gaseous fire suppression systems, there are additional specifications and challenges that need to be considered when designing a solution for hazardous location applications.

Latching Solenoids: What They Can Do For You

– This quarterly newsletter is all about the use of latching technology in solenoids: what it is, how it works, which applications it’s best suited for, and more.

High-Performance Starter Contactor Design

– Market pressures, including start/stop technology, high compression ratios, and lightweighting, are combining to require products outside the performance envelope of extant copper contact starter solenoids. TLX designed contactors exceed the performance of extant copper contactors, increasing the life cycle and current handling of the starter solenoid, and can be extended to start/stop applications.

Integrated Sensing and Internet of Things

– Millions of products and systems are connected to the Internet, and access to the data generated by those products/systems is one of the most valuable assets of the 21st century. Understanding the value and risks of making OEM designs internet-enabled is critical for success and customer security.

Thermal Management Control

– Implementation of custom solenoid valves in thermal management systems to accurately control flow rate can enable greater vehicle reliability and efficiency.

Advanced NGV Valve

– As the interest in natural gas powered vehicles increases, so does the challenges faced by engineers to develop the next generation of natural gas vehicle technologies.

Solenoid Powered Gate Valve

– Newly patented technology offers greater fluid control and reliability in off-highway and automotive applications.

DCT Solenoid Development

– As more gears are added, the package size of the control solenoid must shrink to fit the same real estate previously occupied by fewer solenoids while the operational requirements remain the same.

The Basics of Latching Solenoids

– Answering basic questions about latching solenoids, such as "What is a latching solenoid?" and "How do latching solenoids work?".

Solenoid Design: Value-Added Services

– TLX Technologies offers a variety of value-added services to help customers reduce costs and streamline their resources. We can provide customized, single-sourced solutions that eliminate the need for retaining multiple vendors and additional inventory.

Custom Linear Solenoids in OEM Applications

– Customized linear solenoids offer technical benefits that allow engineering teams to bring better products to market faster, with a higher value for the end customer.

Proportional Solenoid Valve Operation

– Proportionally controlled solenoids are used in fluid-power valve applications to proportionally control flow (or pressure) from zero to maximum flow as a function of duty cycle.

Peak and Hold Solenoid Control

– Peak-and-hold solenoids are utilized when an application requires faster actuation times, lower average power consumption, lower heat generation, or smaller package size.

Shaping The Solenoid Force Curve

– Designing the proper solenoid actuator to meet a specific application involves more than just gathering information on required force, stroke and voltage.
