Square single stroke linear solenoids by KENDRION


Square single stroke linear solenoids

The GQ-Varioline solenoids of Kendrion includes high quality allround solenoids for extra strong forces and large strokes, made in Switzerland, perfect for a robust, industrial environment. These solenoids are based on the long term proofed GS-Line.

Specifications & Technical Details

Specification from - to
Supply voltage [V] 12 V DC - 230 V AC
Duty cycle [%] 5 / 15 / 25 / 40 / 100
Stroke [mm] 10 - 20, size Ø50mm In all solenoid models the solenoid stroke is the line “s” the armature has travelled from stroke starting position to stroke end position. The stroke starting position is the original position of the armature before the stroke movement starts resp. after the reset is finished. The stroke end position is determined by the solenoid design – it is the position the armature takes due to electromagnetic force.
Force [N] 12 - 253, size Ø50mm The magnetic forces indicated are reached at 90% of the nominal voltage and in warmed-up condition.
Protection class (IP) IP40 (with loose wires IP20)
Options - Connector with optional plug and integrated rectifier
- Terminal box
- IP65 Protection
- Painted or nickel plated (increased anti corrosion protection)
- Reverse spring (inside)
Installation type Central-, side or front mounting
Thermal class F
Pull-in time [ms] 64 - 118 The values for the switching times refer to nominal voltage, warmed-up condition and a load with 70% of the magnetic force of the device.
Release time [ms] 50 - 90

Product Information

The high performance industrial solenoids of the GQ-Varioline persuade of its high performance, robustness, its universal usage and long lasting performance.

Based on a modular construction system, the GQ-Varioline can be adapted to individual customer needs:
- in pulling or pushing performance
- as double stroke- and reversable solenoids
- with central-, side or front fitting
- with conntector, terminal or loose wires
- Stroke-Force characteristic I (force ~ constant) or II (force continuously increasing)

The industrial solenoids of the GS-Varioline can be delivered in voltages of 12, 24, 48V DC / G 230V 50Hz AC or any other voltage you require.

The solenoids will be zinc plated as standard. Optionally, it can be painted or nickel plated (increased anti corrosion protection).

All products are manufactured and tested according to DIN VDE 0580/07.2000 and RoHS conform.

The solenoids presented here are both standard products and special designs.
