Bi-stable linear solenoids are powered momentarily; they latch in an end stroke position by a spring or a permanent magnet on the removal of power. By reversing the electrical polarity, the solenoid operates two-directional.
Bi-stable linear solenoids are particularly useful for applications where low energy consumption is required, for example, battery or solar-powered locking mechanisms.
An open-frame design ensures the solenoid is light yet robust, designed for long service life and maintenance-free operation, providing excellent performance at a low cost.
Standard voltages are 24VDC, 15% or 25% ED rated with flying lead connections.
