solenoid

so·le·noid

 (sō′lə-noid′)

solenoid

(ˈsəʊlɪˌnɔɪd)
n
1. (Electronics) a coil of wire, usually cylindrical, in which a magnetic field is set up by passing a current through it
2. (Electronics) a coil of wire, partially surrounding an iron core, that is made to move inside the coil by the magnetic field set up by a current: used to convert electrical to mechanical energy, as in the operation of a switch
3. (Automotive Engineering) such a device used as a relay, as in a motor vehicle for connecting the battery directly to the starter motor when activated by the ignition switch

[USPRwire, Fri Mar 15 2019] Looking at the current market trends as well as the promising demand status of the " Automotive Solenoids Market " it can be projected that the future years will bring out positive outcomes.
In order to produce magnetic field strength measurements that would allow a wide range of students to be successful with this task, a set of prewrapped solenoids was designed and calibrated.
The 70 newly developed items include 34 models of Bosch series starter solenoids (T&X No.B50-B85), 11 models of Hitachi Series Starter Solenoids (T&X No.H46-56), 16 models of Valeo Series Starter Solenoids (T&X No.V40-55), and some Mitsubishi & Denso Series Starter Solenoids.
Solenoids, coils of wire used to generate a controlled magnetic field, can be found virtually everywhere parts are in motion, from sorting millions of envelopes daily at the U.S.
For stage-2 damping, different types of solenoids were constructed and tested, in order to understand the nature of magnetic field formed inside the solenoid.
It requires an input of 7-12VDC to the VIN pin to operate; this is a separate requirement from the 24VDC that the solenoids need.
Measurement of the external magnetic field close to a long solenoid confirms that, in the vicinity of the electron beam, the field is uniform to within around 10% for the 0.50 and 0.75 m solenoids but not for the 0.25 m length solenoid.
Intended for remote or renewable energy applications where rechargeable or standard batteries or capacitors are used, the new Geeplus range of small Push-Pull solenoids is presented as a robust solution for a number of applications requiring a significant holding force using minimal power.
The company formerly known as Westool was established in St Helen Auckland in 1946 and in its heyday it employed over 1,000 people producing solenoids for a variety of industrial applications.
Recovering in intensive care, John struck on the solution of how to power his 'Rim Combi' locking system, which would be the world's only electronic replacement for the traditional 'Yale' type lock cylinder: He said: "While waiting for my operation, despite being severely disabled, I carried on with the designs using traditional solenoids which have been around since the early 1900s, but I couldn't get it to produce the power it needed to work properly.
This article compares the specific characteristics of solenoids and motors, their common properties, and those attributes that make each of these electromechanical devices unique for a specific medical motion application.
Failed solenoids are becoming all too common with the IHMEE's hydraulic system.
