NSF Controls solenoids are manufactured to superior quality and provide excellent reliability  

The range includes many options suitable for a broad spectrum of markets and sectors, and as specialists in customised solutions, we are able to produce solenoids to meet your specific requirements. 

Tubular Solenoids

Economic solution for longer stroke, limited space applications. Long life, premium quality solenoids, ideal where maintenance is restricted. Dependable option for high force, heavy duty applications. Read more...

Rotary Solenoids

Compact, maintenance-free solution offering high power output in relation to size and weight.
A precise and robust operator for on/off applications. Application specific rotary solenoids can be developed through custom configurations as well as the option of standard or endurance engineered models. Read more...

Low Profile Solenoids

High force output from a compact design. Reliable performance solution for short stroke, high force applications, such as automation, processing and packaging. Read more...

Open Frame Solenoids

The basic solenoid designed with an open coil construction. Suited to very low cost, high volume applications, where precision and premium life are not critical factors for the application, such as secure parcel collection points. Read more...

Magnetic Latching Solenoids

Also known as bi-stable solenoids. They use permanent magnets together with the conventional magnetic circuit of DC solenoids. Read more...

Functional Scope of Solenoids

The basic principle of solenoids is the conversion of electrical energy into force and movement. The resulting direction of movement is linear or rotary. Read more...


All NSF Controls solenoids are DC as opposed to AC

The overall versatility of the DC solenoid produces a superior end result and means we are able to provide solenoids that better meet the specific requirements of our clients.

DC solenoids have the capacity to be modified in ways that would be highly unsuitable or considerably more complicated for AC versions.

  • AC solenoids draw current surges as they close, resulting in increased coil heat and noise.
  • DC solenoids have a quiet operation.
  • In the case of limited space, DC solenoids generally perform more favourably than AC equivalents.
  • The life expectancy of DC solenoids is typically higher.
