The specification sheet below displays the typical information needed to design and manufacture a new solenoid design. Once designed, we model and test new solenoids in our facility in West Carrollton, before shipping them to our customers for application testing. The spec sheet then serves as the documentation for the ongoing manufacturing of that design, once the customer has confirmed that the new product performs to the necessary expectation.

  • Projected life of 125 million cycles
  • Quiet actuation ideal for office environment
  • Interfaces with plastic or metal daisy wheel
  • Unique patented construction minimizes bounce to precise limits
  • Lead wire length variable
  • Simple to install and adjust

The part number described in this preliminary data sheet is 381814-001.

The unit is designed to accept different size and weight plungers as your requirements may dictate.
