We Have a New Website! Magnet-Schultz of America (MSA) is pleased to announce the launch of our new website! This effort began as part of MSA’s Better, Quicker, Thriftier (BQT) initiative, now officially one of the 14 rules we live by known as The MSA Way.  The new website brings web development in-house for

Ingression Protection for Solenoids

Ingression protection is a commonly requested solenoid feature. As dirt, dust, moisture, and other foreign objects accumulate in a solenoid, the performance and life cycle are dramatically reduced. There are several methods to combat ingression, but before choosing the correct solution it is important to understand the degrees of protection available. International Protection (or IP)

Electromechanical Voice Coil Solenoids and Actuators

Magnet-Schultz of America (MSA) defines and clarifies key characteristics, working functionality and benefits of Voice Coil linear actuators (also known as Lorentz Force Actuators). OVERVIEW A Voice Coil is a type of solenoid linear actuator within which an electrical coil and a permanent magnet interact to create high speed, precisely controlled linear motion. The
