A Challenge to Durable Solenoid Design
TLX is proud of the durability of our components and sometimes it seems like customers just want to test this pride....challenge accepted.
We were approached with an application that called for a solenoid valve to operate while completely submerged in the hot, harsh automatic transmission fluid of an all-terrain vehicle (easy right?). Our engineers rose to the challenge and designed a component that would not only operate in this environment, but also met low-leakage requiments and operated over a variety of pressure ranges. Futhermore, TLX adapted a test stand to preheat transmission fluid, so that the solenoid valves could be tested to the customer's specific requirements.
