The square solenoids of the Kendrion High Performance Line excel by an enormous stroke density and a flexible modular system.
These solenoids are used wherever large forces, short switching times and high efficiency with limited installation space are required
They fulfil the special requirements when used in high voltage circuit breakers and railway door lockings as well as in general actuating functions in automation and medical engineering.
The mode of operation of the solenoid is based on the force exerted on ferromagnetic bodies in the magnetic field. Electromagnets transform electric energy into mechanical energy.
Basically the stroke movement takes place from the stroke starting position to the stroke end position (active direction of movement), while the armature reset is accomplished by external forces, e.g. by spring, weight or magnetic forces (passive direction of movement). In this product line the reset can optionally be performed by an integrated return spring. The solenoid armature is reset to the starting position.
The actuating solenoids mentioned above are actuators in which the force of an electromagnetic field is used to perform a longitudinal movement. The stroke limitation can be set by hand for every application. The solenoids can be installed in any position, but the force transfer should be in axial direction only.
All products are manufactured and tested according to DIN VDE 0580/07.2000.
Design subject to change.
