Small push-pull solenoid
11,10€ VAT INCLUDED
Push-pull solenoid. Power supply 24VDC, requires approximately 100mA (do not use it with a battery from 9V!). Armor length 30mm.
- Additional information
Solenoids are basically electromagnets: they are made of copper coils with an armature (a slug of metal) in the middle. When the coil is energized, the slug is pulled into the center of the coil. (One from the end) or push (from the other)
This solenoid in particular is fairly small, with a 30mm long body and a 'captive' armature with a return spring. This means that it is very easy to work with, and it is quite handy. Many lower cost solenoids are only push type or only pull type and may not have captive armor (it'll fall out!) Or don't have a return spring. This is a great all-purpose solenoid.
To drive a solenoid will power transistor and diode, check this diagram for how to wire it to an Arduino or other microcontroller. The electro-magnet, about 100mA, so do not try to power it with a 9V battery!
- 24 DC operation (you can use 9-24 DC volts, but lower voltage results in weaker / slower operation)
- Push or pull type with 5.5 mm throw
- DC coil resistance: 100 ohms
- 5 Newton starting force (24VDC)
- 1.4 oz / 39 grams
