The co. introduces its MagShift(R) solenoid family to eliminate impact among its moving parts and to provide quiet operation. In a power-ON mode, the solenoids will measure below 40 dBA, including end-of-travel stop. When the unit reaches its end-of-travel position, there is no impact force, which eliminates vibration and minimizes noise. The construction of the solenoids eliminates residual magnetism that can impede performance and allows the same assembly to be configured as a push or a pull solenoid for maximum system design flexibility, the co. says.
