Coils are awesome. Ignition coils, Tesla Coils and Coilguns to name a few. But our new favorite coils are the ones in our New Solenoids. These solenoids will move their shaft in and out as you apply a voltage to them – they’re incredibly easy to use and amazingly useful for projects ranging from locking mechanisms to home brew pinball machines.
The smallest solenoid can fit into the tiniest of project boxes, while the largest one can move a whopping 7.5 lbs. And right in between, the medium solenoid is a great compromise between size and strength. We have a Strength Chart of all the solenoids at different voltages, as well as technical drawings and 3D .stp files available on the product pages.
Check our video for more information and to see the incredible feats of strength these solenoids can perform.
