A Challenge to Durable Solenoid Design

– TLX was approached with an application that called for a solenoid valve to operate while completely submerged in the hot automatic transmission fluid of an all-terrain vehicle...Easy right? Well, our engineers were up for the challenge.

Achieve Immediate Response in a Fault-Interrupting Device

– A manufacturer of high-voltage electrical power distribution equipment needed to actuate a fault-interrupting device while switching functions in their larger facilities. The best component for the customer was a large latching solenoid, held in the latched position by a permanent magnet (so it consumed no power).

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.

Fuel Shut-Off Valve for Natural Gas Vehicles

– TLX’s expert engineers saw the obstacles in designing a fuel shut-off valve for a natural gas application, and began identifying ways to improve valve performance.

How Solenoids Can Improve the Security of your System

– A leading computer manufacturer needed a security feature to help guard against corporate espionage and the theft of expensive hardware. After considering several options, it was determined that a two-position latching solenoid, placed in a secure location, was the best component.

Improving Welding Clamps with Latching Technology

– A manufacturer needed to replace the pneumatically powered clamps that held material for welding. A custom latching solenoid provided both the locking and latching functions the manufacturer required. Permanent magnets latched the solenoids in a retracted position without consuming power.

Latching Technology used to Isolate Power Faults

– A manufacturer of high-voltage electrical power distribution equipment needed a solution to actuate a fault-interrupting device. The solution would isolate power faults and reroute power when needed.

Solenoids for Motorcycle Engines

– A manufacturer was looking for a solution for the manual compression release valve on a motorcycle engine. TLX successfully designed a pressure release solenoid valve that fit all the requirements and reducted total vehicle cost.

Solenoids for use in Hazardous Locations

– A manufacturer wanted to eliminate this issue in their heavy-duty fluid sprayers by automatically stopping the pump when it lost fluid. Since the sprayer could be used in hazardous locations, the solution needed to take precautions against fire and explosion.

Solenoids Help Control Injection Molding

– A manufacturer of foam injection molding machines needed to refine their product to better suit a client that made seats for automotive OEMS. TLX engineers designed a custom latching solenoid that operated in high temperatures and provided the precise control required for the molding process.

Three-Position Solenoid Helps Improve Vehicle Emissions

– An automotive company was looking for a solution to open and close the valve that vented fumes between the fuel tank and the charcoal canister. TLX designed an efficient, three-position solenoid that performed each function in the fuel vapor recirculation system.
