Bi-directional Rotary Solenoids

Bi-directional rotary solenoids provide fast pivotal movement in two directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise, to a predefined angular position when energised.

Bi-directional solenoids are constructed using two separate coils housed within one enclosure, by powering the respective solenoid coil, the shaft pivots in two directions.

The UD solenoid range is available in two body sizes; these are 35mm and 50mm diameters each with fixed rotary movements of 25°, 35°, 45°, 65° and 95°, a double output shaft comes as standard.

UD series rotary solenoids feature ball bearings on both sides of the shaft, with no linear shaft movement to ensure precise positioning for long service life and maintenance-free operation, providing superior performance at low cost.

UD series bidirectional solenoids are provided with threaded holes either side of the solenoid to secure the device to a flat surface.

Standard voltages are 24V DC, 100%ED rated with flying leads or a plug connection; other voltages or duty cycles for increased torque are available on request.
