Bicron Magnetic Latching DC Solenoids
Bicron’s Magnetic Latching (self-holding) DC Solenoids are a linear design that provide positive holding in power-off mode. These are ideal for low-power or battery-operated applications.
The advantages of a permanent magnet are used to hold the plunger when the solenoid is not energized. Offered as C-Frame and D-Frame types with pull action. Standard Duty Cycles are 10% to 42% when energized, depending on the model.
Power Management Devices
“Zero Power to Hold” Latching Mechanisms.
“Zero Power to Hold” makes our Magnetic Latching solenoid a must for power management in applications that require linear actuation and continual hold with the absence of electrical power
Magnetic latching solenoids differ from conventional solenoids by the use of a permanent magnet in their core that polarizes the unit. When connected in "pull-in" mode, force generated by the coil polarity adds to force in the polarized core which enables the plunger to pull in. When connected in the 'release" mode, coil polarity opposes the polarized core, allowing the load or spring to release the plunger.
