Elevator Solenoids Overview
Looking for a solenoid with short strokes and high magnetic forces releasing your brake? Kendrion’s Single-Acting and Double-acting Elevator Solenoids will work perfectly for you. These solenoids are maintenance- free and can be installed in any direction as long as the force transfer is in the axial direction. The interior is also protected from the penetration of dust and humidity as a result of special sealing materials. This ensures high reliability and low maintenance over the lifetime of the solenoid. Due to the high magnetic forces, the key use of the solenoids are inherent with their names “elevator solenoids”. Some other common uses are the release of brakes in escalators and other industrial applications where a flywheel’s speed is going to be reduced by external forces.
