Efficient and durable push-pull solenoids generate a significant amount of force for their comparatively small size, this makes them particularly suited to high-force short-stroke applications.
The compact size of the solenoid optimises the magnetic flux path, alongside a precision coil winding technique which packs the maximum amount of copper wire into the available space, allowing maximum force to be generated.
Push-pull solenoids have 2 shafts relative to the mounting studs, the shaft on the same side as the studs pushes and the shaft on the armature side pulls, so you have both options on the same solenoid. As opposed to other solenoids like tubulars which are independent of each other.
An easy way to improve the solenoid’s life is to minimise the side load, this can be achieved by mounting the solenoid so that the shaft travels along a vertical plane
Ensure the solenoid can operate within the specified temperature limits to prevent overheating.
Use the shortest possible stroke required for your application to improve the life of the solenoid.
