Bistable linear solenoids are designed for the activation with electric impulses. After activation, the armature of such solenoids is held in its end position without requiring energy to remain in this state. An electric impulse with reverse polarity activates the return spring to bring the armature back into its original position.
Bistable linear solenoids are the ideal solution for applications imposing restrictions concerning energy consumption. They also match applications with no mains connection, because they are able to operate with either battery or solar energy. Typical examples are locks in portable devices, electric door locks and other locking systems. Due to their compact dimensions, such solenoids can easily be integrated into almost any locking system.
In small quantities, frequently demanded versions of our bistable linear solenoids are available directly from stock. Additionally, we are able to provide tailor-made versions with individual coil dimensions for different operating voltages and duty cycles, as well as individual connections, such as terminals or wiring strands at any suitable length.
