November 19, 2013 – 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).
July 9, 2013 – 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.
April 9, 2013 – TLX developed a two-position, three-way pilot valve with performance tailored for ALD applications, including ultra-fast response, high operating temperature and compact design.
March 25, 2015 – 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.
August 14, 2013 – 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.
May 14, 2014 – TLX designed a fast, high-latching force component to replace pyrotechnic burst devices in fire suppression applications
December 16, 2013 – 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.
September 9, 2013 – 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.
August 8, 2013 – 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.
December 17, 2012 – 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.
July 21, 2014 – 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.
July 9, 2013 – 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.
