Soft Shift Linear DC Solenoids

Linear DC Solenoids
Johnson Electric’s SoftShift linear solenoids provide slow, smooth position control or high speed snap action operation. SoftShift solenoids have a unique construction which allows easy transition from snap action to variable positioning. Using the same power, starting force is three to five times higher than standard solenoids at the fully de-energized position. This is advantageous for starting inertial loads or detent mechanisms, and for conserving electrical power. This solenoid offers quiet operation, high power density, and a variety of sizes. Custom engineered solutions ensure that exact application requirements are met. With life of 10 million cycles, the SoftShift platform is ideal for applications requiring closed loop velocity and position control.
