In pt. 1 of our hydraulic solenoids post, we described how they differ from electromechanical solenoids and discussed some basic applications. We also had a follow-up blog post that described the two major functional categories of hydraulic solenoids, on/off and proportional. This post will expand on the different design and manufacturing features of tubes and coils depending on their intended purpose. Check our blog history for information on more technical subjects and feel free to make suggestions for future posts.

Developing a Preliminary Specification for Solenoids and Electromagnetic Devices

When System Design Engineers are tasked with incorporating an electromagnetic device (i.e. a solenoid, electromagnet, voice coil, etc.) into a new product, it would be useful if they could readily access design “guidelines” that would help them to identify, quantify and then communicate the performance characteristics needed to meet their system’s dimensional and performance requirements.

Great idea, but, where does one find this list of guidelines?
