  • 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
  • The 5 Best Industry Applications For Linear And Rotary Solenoids
    Electromechanical devices (e.g., linear and rotary solenoids) play a tremendous role in manufacturing processes and thousands of consumer products which make our lives easier and more productive. Both linear and rotary solenoids operate by converting an electrical signal into a magnetic field
  • 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
  • Solenoids: Principle of Operation
    Why use solenoids?. Actuation for machine and process automation must range from the most basic on-off function to extremely complex sequencing. When the process involves linear or rotary motion, solenoids are among the best actuation devices in terms of size, cost, simplified installation and ease
  • Solenoids: Principle of Operation for Engineers
    Why use solenoids?. Actuation for machine and process automation must range from the most basic on-off function to extremely complex sequencing. When the process involves linear or rotary motion, solenoids are among the best actuation devices in terms of size, cost, simplified installation and ease
  • The History of the Rotary Solenoid
    Rotary solenoids are electromechanical devices used for a variety of applications. They have a strong connection to Dayton and are vital for long life operation in challenging environments. What, Exactly, is a Rotary Solenoid?. A rotary solenoid uses three ball bearings to convert linear motion
  • Linear Actuators for High-Speed Low-Load Applications
    A number of medical applications need high-speed actuation in the lower load band. Many OEMs use pneumatic actuators or electric solenoids for this purpose; however, these options do not provide precise positioning. And although more expensive technology such as servo pneumatic positioning systems
  • Voice Coils vs. Solenoids: What is the Difference?
    The question of whether to use voice coil actuators or solenoids for small displacement motion control applications comes up often. This article explains the key differences between each product and why you might choose one over the other for your application. A non-commutated DC linear actuator
