  • Linear Solenoids: How to Select a Linear Solenoid
    When selecting a linear solenoid for an application, there are many different factors that can influence the choice. The selection process aims to identify the least expensive linear solenoid or actuator that can satisfy requirements of the application. Learn all about selecting a linear solenoid
  • Selecting a Push-Pull Solenoid
    Push-pull solenoids are the most robust series of linear solenoids and are therefore the best option for heavy duty applications. Their intelligent magnetic concept allows a very high holding force at a comparably low power input. This makes push-pull solenoids ideally suited for applications
  • Rotary Solenoids: Selection Process of a Rotary Solenoid
    The rotary movement in our rotary solenoids is converted from a linear motion by the mechanical design of an inclined plane. These rotary solenoids have three uniform spiral grooves that are stamped into both the case and the armature, called "ball races". The ball races provide the conversion
  • Linear actuators get a servo look
    a linear motor is to envision a rotary servomotor sliced lengthwise and then flattened. Motion between stator and what was formerly the rotor will now be linear, akin to a maglev train. Tubular linear actuators have a form factor resembling that of a solenoid. The position of the "plunger " (called
  • Pulse and Hold Power Management
    Acro Associates' solenoid pinch valves employ a spring-loaded linear actuator to control motion of the pinching surfaces. Most linear solenoid actuators are closing-the-air-gap devices, where the force characteristics vary substantially throughout the stroke. Generally, actuators are designed so
  • Voice Coil Motors
    Voice coil motors offer excellent control characteristics where linear actuation is required over short distances with electronic control systems. Comparison of the force characteristics vs displacement, and vs current, for voice coil devices and solenoid actuators shows the difference between
  • Proportional Valves
    The performance of proportional valves falls in the wide spectrum between on/off solenoid valves and electrohydraulic servovalves. The valves are termed proportional because output flow is not exactly linear in relation to input current. Despite their nonlinear response, the valves
  • Proportional Solenoids: Technical Overview
    Proportional Solenoids are linear actuators with a force proportional to the current in a limited range. With the addition of a return spring in your application you can make the proportional solenoid into a positioning device, where the position is depending on the input current to the coil
