Magnetic-Latching Technology

Magnetic Latching Mechanisms

Magnetic Latching mechanisms fall into one of three distinct categories relative to how they are operated, the electrical energy needed to operate them, and the release force, which their return spring mechanism can generate. CATEGORY ONE: Permanent-Magnet/Electro-Magnetic Linear Actuators (also known as Magnetic-Latching Solenoids or MLS) A more complete discussion of the differences between

Permanent-Magnet/Electro-Magnetic Linear Actuators

Magnetic-latching functionality is employed in products we come across everyday, even though the mechanism by which this technology functions isn’t something most people think about. Being an engineer, I always feel the need to research and understand how things work. Because I’m also a bit of a professor at heart, I would like to share
