Customer Requirement

NSF Controls was approached by Lite Launcher as their unreliable motor-driven catch was no longer fit for purpose. We were asked to produce a dependable, user friendly and cost effective method of operating the firing pin which launches a dummy for a dog to retrieve as part of a gun dog training program.

NSF Controls Solution

NSF Controls developed and tested a size 3E rotary solenoid operating on a spring–loaded plunger as it had to be able to withstand significant recoil forces. We also incorporated a release lever and return spring support to provide resilient mounting within the assembly.


The end result was a reliable, robust solenoid that could withstand the recoil force of the launcher without mechanical failures.
