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.

The latest entry in the Magnet-Schultz of America Solenoid 101 blog discusses how permanent magnets can be used to accomplish latching functions in solenoids. A more detailed analysis of these types of mechanisms has been previously published by MSA here. This recap will reduce the content to the simplest terms for a quick and clear understanding of the fundamental concepts.
