HIGH SECURITY, ROBUST LOCKING APPLICATIONS, BALL-DETENT LOCKING SOLENOIDS:
PART TWO
Edited by David Stockwell; Technical information provided by Roland Mueller & Simon Benik

BLOG 1 of this two-part series discussed the need for, and desired characteristics of a robust locking device, capable of providing a high hold force in a small package. It then went on to describe the capabilities of an Independent Locking-Receptacle, Ball-Detent Locking Solenoid for such applications.

BLOG 2 presents the Integrated Locking-Receptacle variant of the BDL-Solenoid, where the Locking-Receptacle is incorporated into the solenoid body and mechanism. To effect the locking function, this Locking-Receptacle must interface with an independent Ball-Shaft (Figure 1).

HIGH SECURITY, ROBUST LOCKING APPLICATIONS, BALL-DETENT LOCKING SOLENOIDS: PART ONE
Edited by David Stockwell; Technical information provided by Roland Mueller & Simon Benik

The need often arises to find a device that can securely lock the door to a room, the door or drawers of a cabinet, or even to securely hold independent sections of a mechanical apparatus together while the system is operational. The wish list for such a device might also include:
