Linear Solenoid is an electromagnetic component, which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy, to linear movement. It contains a winding, which creates a magnetic field when current flows through it. The magnetic field stimulates an internal plunger and creates a movement. The solenoid is shaped to provide maximum force with minimum weight and volume.
There are many types of linear solenoids; Push/Pull, Tubular, SuperStroke, etc.
Linear solenoid can also be used as a mechanical stop, switch, locking mechanism, puncture etc.
An ultra-small latching solenoid from Geeplus has no respect for size.
Although it only measures 12x8x7mm at its widest points, their new S1L-0211 provides more than 2N of holding force
