Single-stroke solenoids are actuators which perform a linear movement by electromagnetic force from stroke starting position to stroke end position. The reset is achieved by external forces, often times by springs, weights or magnetic force. Kendrion single-stroke solenoids excel with a long service life, are maintenance-free and can be installed in any position. Lastly, but equally important is the range of application for our single-stroke solenoids is virtually unlimited.
Single-stroke solenoids are particularly energy-effi cient in mono- and bi-stable design. The armature starting and/or end position can be held current less by installing a permanent magnet. Thus, a current entry is only required for the actual switching operation.
Locking solenoids are designed for high radial forces and are therefore optimized for applications as safety devices for machine and automation installations. Single- and doublespreader solenoids have very high forces and are used in elevator and escalator drives as well as in industrial brakes for the lifting of shoe and drum brakes
