Motion Control – Solenoid Driver Module from Magnetic Sensor Systems is Energy Stingy!

Motion Control – Solenoids – Driver Module

Motion Control – Solenoids – Van Nuys, CA – Magnetic Sensor Systems (MSS) Has released the SDM840 Solenoid Driver Module as a complement to their Series of Solenoids and those of other manufacturers that includes: Tubular, Open Frame, Low Profile, Hinged Clapper, Latching, and Rotary Solenoids. This compact, quiet 20 kHz pulse width modulated driver module measuring just 1.65 in. x 2.50 in. is designed to consume less energy by first applying the voltage for a pre-determined period of time necessary to activate the solenoid and when the plunger is seated, drop the voltage to a level sufficient to hold the solenoid in the seated position conserving energy and avoiding overheating the solenoid’s coil.

This also allows smaller solenoids to be used when a large force at a long stroke is required by applying high voltage to the solenoid providing the necessary force to pull the plunger in, then dropping the voltage down to maintain the plunger in place.
