Solenoids

  1. 1. Turning Electrical Power into Mechanical Work
  2. 2. Presentation Agenda • Discuss how a Solenoid Works • Show some different types of Solenoids • Discuss Applications for Solenoid use. • Introduce Web Resources
  3. 3. How a Solenoid Works. 1. Apply Current 2. Magnetic Field Builds 3. Stop and Plunger Become Attracting Magnets 4. Magnetic Force Drives Plunger to Stop
  4. 4. Basics Types of Solenoids • Push • Pull • Clapper • Rotary • Open • Closed
  5. 5. Types of Solenoids Pull Solenoids • Force is Directed Back towards Solenoid. Push Solenoids • Force is Directed AWAY from Solenoid
  6. 6. Types of Solenoids Clapper Solenoids • Typically Force application can be the same as a Push or Pull • Greater amount of End Force/Hold Force
  7. 7. Types of Solenoids Rotary Solenoids • Apply a Torque over a range of Rotation. • Every Company has different ways to obtain the rotary motion.
  8. 8. Types of Solenoids Rotary Solenoids • Other Configurations:
  9. 9. Types of Solenoids • Open Frame Solenoids • Closed Frame Solenoids or Tubular Solenoids
  10. 10. Typical Solenoid Applications • Linear Applications – Valve Actuators – Latching/Switching – Pushing/Pulling Objects • Sorting • Shutters • Characteristics – Size  as Force  – Limited Stroke Lengths • 5/8” is a Long Stroke
  11. 11. Typical Solenoid Applications • Rotary Solenoids – Sorting Machines – Shutter Actuators • Characteristics – Strokes from 5 to 90 – As Stroke Increases Starting Torque 
  12. 12. Web Resources For Solenoids http://www.camdec.com http://www.gwlisk.com http://www.ledex.com http://www.ramcompany.com http://www.takaha.com
  13. 13. Conclusions • Solenoids Convert Electrical Energy to Mechanical Work • Different Types of Solenoids for Different Types of Applications – Linear and Rotary • Major Considerations – Size – Stroke and Force Limitations
  14. 14. Questions
