Critical Applications

Dependable solenoid and switch solutions for critical uses

Where the use of a traditional permanently latched solenoid would conflict with other magnetically controlled systems in use, NSF developed the mechanically latched bi-directional tubular solenoid.

Versatile, lightweight and reliable with a lifespan of 10 million actuations in each direction, this component can typically be utilised by military, security and medical markets.

“NSF responded quickly to Mono’s request to solve a problem and provided a cost effective component that has proved reliable for many years.”

- Mr D Thomas, Engineering Manager, Mono Equipment
