Technical Considerations for Ordering Solenoids
The performance published in our data sheets is for guidance only, as varying electrical, mechanical and environmental conditions will have an effect.
For us to assist you in specifying the correct solenoid to suit your application, the following information needs to be determined.
Specify maximum envelope available. Remember the larger the solenoid the lower the current and operating costs.
Force or Torque Required
Specify initial requirements
Stroke is expressed in degrees of rotation for Rotary Solenoids and movement in mm for Linear Solenoids. Specify direction and angle of rotation (viewed on Armature Plate) for Rotary Solenoids. Specify Push or Pull operation and movement required for Linear Solenoids
Duty cycle is expressed as a percentage of the on time in a total time taken for 1 cycle of operation. If in doubt specify maximum on time and minimum off time for 1 cycle
Specify working voltage tolerances and any current limitations
Specify working ambient temperature
For replacements and prototype activity a selection of NSF Controls Tubular Solenoids are now available to buy from Amazon.
