Approximately 20 mm x 10 mm x 12 mm, the C5 family of miniature open frame linear solenoids is one of the smallest solenoids introduced to date by the company. Available configurations include magnetic latching rated for forces up to 3 pounds, or a standard on/off version rated for use with forces in excess of 3.5 pounds. Due to its small size and low power consumption, the C5 is ideally suited for battery-operated applications. The magnetic latching version is designed for very low duty cycle applications where the solenoid needs to remain in the energized position for extended periods of time.
