B16L, B17L, and C5L miniature open frame magnetic latching solenoids are each well suited for battery operation while providing strokes up to 0.18 in. and forces up to 3 lbs. They offer up to 100,000 cycles with moderate force output. These solenoids provide intermittent duty, on/off operation, and pull-in engagement well suited to lock/latch operations. They are particularly well suited for applications where the solenoid needs to remain in an energized position for extended periods of time and are an economical solution for volume applications.
