Miniature Solenoids

Sept. 16, 2004
The C5 Series miniature open-frame linear solenoids are approximately 20 x 10 x 12 mm.

Available configurations include magnetic latching rated for forces up to 3 lb, or a standard on/off version rated for use with forces in excess of 3.5 lb. Small size and low power consumption let the C5 work well in battery-operated applications. The magneticlatching version is designed for very-low dutycycle applications where the solenoid needs to remain in the energized position for extended periods of time.
