Johnson Electric’s linear open frame solenoid technology consists of an open iron frame, an overmolded or taped coil, and a movable plunger in the center of the coil. This platform is available in AC and DC versions and in two frame styles, the C Frame style, in which the coil is enclosed on side, and the Box Frame style in which the coil in enclosed on two sides. The Box Frame style provides slightly higher force output and higher resistance to environmental conditions. Open Frame Solenoid technology offers an economical design for high volume applications, continuous or intermittent duty, and on/off operation common in applications such as vending machines and automated door locks. This technology offers life up to 5 million cycles and a variety of size, force and stroke options. Custom designs can significantly increase life performance
