Rotary solenoids from KENDRION are rotary actuating magnets that show their advantages in numerous applications. In sorting technology and intralogistics, for example, they are used to set the course. But they also perform a wide range of tasks in automation whenever precise and fast swivel movements are required. Depending on the requirements for torque, holding torque, switching time and angle of rotation, single rotary solenoids, or the bistable variant are suitable.
Rotary solenoids are actuators, just like linear solenoids. They perform a rotary motion with a certain torque over a defined angle of rotation. The mode of operation of rotary solenoids from Kendrion can be monostable as well as bistable. In the monostable design, the resetting is done using a spring. The bistable design is based on the reversal of the supply voltage to change the direction of rotation in a polarized system. Due to the short switching time and the permanent high holding torque, the system needs only little current and therefore works energy-saving.
Bistable rotary solenoids can fix their end positions on both sides with a high holding torque. This gives them a property that is required, for example, for use in sorting technology for switch points. Modern logistics concepts rely on fast and reliable switching with rotary solenoids.
In addition to switching points, rotary solenoids also perform actuating tasks in machines and systems. For the optimal size and design of the actuator, our existing standards can be used, or customer-specific adaptations can be made. The modular design of Kendrion rotary solenoids allows a fast implementation of specific requirements.
Safe interlocks are a further field of application of the rotary solenoids. The energy-saving, bistable concept, as well as the compact size of our compact rotary solenoid, are decisive for the use as latching devices.
