Design
Permanent Magnet Solenoids (also known as latching or self-holding solenoid) are a linear open frame design that utilize the advantages of a high performance permanent magnet. A magnetic latching field is created by the permanent magnet that holds the plunger in the closed or energized position without energy to the coil.

Features
Options include one-direction and two-direction models that can be used in both short and long stroke applications. One-direction models have a single coil and use the permanent magnet to hold the plunger in the energized position without energy. Two-direction models have two coils and use the permanent magnet to hold the plunger in two positions, at both ends of the stroke.  Life expectancy is rated up to 200,000 life cycles.

Application insight
As illustrated, a popular application for Permanent Magnet Solenoids is to control the cylinder of any door locking mechanism. The solenoid maintains the cylinder in the locked or unlocked position without energy to the coil.
