Looking for a solenoid with high forces and low power consumption? Kendrion’s Bistable Solenoids have both of these characteristics along with fast actuation times. Modified versions of the standard products are available with individual coil dimensions for different operating voltages and duty cycles. There can also be differing individual connections with terminals and wiring strands customized to any suitable length. They are designed for activation with electric impulse. After their activation the solenoids are able to remain in the end position without energy. To bring the armature back to its original position the electric impulse has to be reversed in polarity. If energy consumption is a large issue, the Latching Solenoids are the perfect solution with the ability to operate with either battery or solar energy. This makes them ideal for locks in portable devices and for electric locks. They can be included in almost any lock design because of their compact dimensions and ability to work with power sources other than a main supply. Some of the other applications besides locking is in appliances, industrial equipment, and energy technology.
