Switches • Solenoids

Solenoids use an electromechanical solenoid to turn high power circuits on and off in hydraulic machinery, control actuators and other industrial equipment.

A solenoid switch is a specific type of relay that internally uses an electromechanical solenoid to turn high power circuits – found in process machine applications - on and off. A variety of solenoid switch designs exist including: locking, cutting, clamping, punching, positioning, diverting, holding, rotating, linear, rotary, bi-stable, and latching.Common solenoid switch types include pneumatic solenoid valves and hydraulic solenoid valves. A pneumatic solenoid valve is a switch for routing air to any pneumatic device. These valves are commonly used to control a piston or other linear actuator. Hydraulic solenoid valves are used by hydraulic machinery to control the flow of oil or to control actuators used in manufacturing applications.
