A solenoid is a simple robust device that converts electrical energy into force and movement, its component parts consist of a copper coil, iron shell or case and a moveable plunger or pole.

Solenoids are the best actuation devices in terms of cost, size, installation and ease of use, they fall into two categories of motions - linear or rotary. These strokes are measured in either MM or degrees of rotation.

We have a search tool within our datasheets to help direct you towards the best solenoid options based on your space envelope, function and force requirements. 

Using our standard solenoids as a foundation to build upon, we manufacture custom solenoids with unparalleled quality and reliability, they are available in various sizes with different stroke lengths, allowing us to cover a broad range of industries and applications.
