Magnet-Schultz of America’s new Solenoid 101 series of blogs is designed to inform about the basic functions of solenoid products. We will start by tackling the fundamentals of solenoid terminology, function, and design. Future posts in the series will describe other MSA product categories and applications in a similar fashion, providing a quick and easy grasp of concepts. We will continue posting our more technical blogs, but want to make the full breadth of solenoid knowledge available to our visitors.

Permanent-Magnet/Electro-Magnetic Linear Actuators

Magnetic-latching functionality is employed in products we come across everyday, even though the mechanism by which this technology functions isn’t something most people think about. Being an engineer, I always feel the need to research and understand how things work. Because I’m also a bit of a professor at heart, I would like to share the theory of operation and the differences between conventional solenoids and magnetic-latching solenoids. As a convenient frame of reference, this discussion will involve solenoids, which are used in locking mechanisms.
