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
