Stepping solenoids provide much higher torque than the equivalent-sized stepper motors. For larger step angles, where speed isn’t essential to the application, stepping solenoids offer simple controls with just two wires, and a pulse of DC current to power the solenoid.
The key to stepping solenoids superior performance is the exclusive tooth clutch drive: it has a positive-action, self-locking drive which contributes to the greater useable torque output. The drive also acts as a built-in electro-mechanical clutch brake to eliminate the natural tendency of overdriving at the end of a step.
Stepping solenoids are available in 12, 18, 24, or 36 steps per revolution models, and uni-directional or bi-directional configurations. The internal parts of the stepping solenoid are permanently lubricated and enclosed to protect from external environments, making our stepping solenoids maintenance-free, cost-effective products for your application.

*Please note: where flange mounting is used for bi-directional models, consideration should be given to securing both sections of the solenoid if high inertia loads are to be positioned.
