WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE SELECTING DC SOLENOIDS?-KEYOPO
Issue Time:2017-06-06

DCSolenoids are used across a wide range of industries including, industrialhydraulics,automotive and off-road equipment markets. 


DC Solenoids act as a mechanical actuator converting electrical energy into mechanicalforce. They are a fundamental part to any system that utilises them.


Whenchoosing a DC Solenoid,adetailed specification is a key requirement to realising anoptimum solution.Adetailed specification can save you time and money in the long-term by reducingdesign iterations through the development process and allowing you to get yournew product to market quicker.


Thereare a number of key aspects which should be considered:
1.
Type of Solenoid - DCSolenoids can be broken down into two types.
 a)
On/Off type solenoids.On/Offsolenoids are used in directional valves where it is fully off or on and isvoltage controlled.
b) proportional type solenoids. Proportional solenoids are current controlledrather than voltage controlled 
and offer a higher level of control.


a)On/Off type solenoids:



2.PowerInput and Force Output– DC solenoids are designed for a specific voltage, power usage, and/or currentinput. However, in all applications, there is a range of voltages around thenominal. A 12-volt application for example might range from 9 – 16 volts.
A proportional application will have a maximum current and voltage available.
The key consideration in this is the force
vs stroke performance output of thesolenoid for a given power input.


b)proportional type solenoids:

3.Media –Media refers to the type of fluid that flows through the solenoid.
Different fluids are
utilised fordifferent applications.
Mineral oil is commonly used within the hydraulics industry.
Whilst fire resistant fluids are often used in safety critical applicationssuch as the aerospace industry.
