In its simplest term, a solenoid is a device that converts electrical energy into mechanical movement.

A solenoid, constructed from copper wire uniformly wound onto a spool to create an electrical coil, generates a controlled magnetic field when an electrical current is applied. The magnetic field interacts with a ferromagnetic armature positioned inside the hollow core of the spool, converting the electrical current into fast linear or rotary mechanical motion.

Rotary and linear solenoids are found in various industrial applications; these include medical, automotive, machine automation, wind energy, marine and agricultural applications.

Typical examples of application use include door locks, oxygen mask release mechanisms, gearbox interlocks, cash dispensing machines, amusement arcades, printers, laser positioning, parking ticket machines, card readers, conveyor feeds and diverters.

  • Rotary solenoids provide fast pivotal movement to a predefined angular position when powered.
  • Linear solenoids develop force in a linear direction when energised.

The majority of applications call for standard solenoids without requiring significant engineering. Sometimes applications need a unique design, and we have the engineering experience to provide the solution.
