Double effect linear electromagnet

Designed to produce the same force in both directions, double-effect linear electromagnets are available in three categories :

Bistable electromagnets

Bistable electromagnets are equipped with magnetic locking in two positions without consuming current.

Monostable electromagnets

Monostable electromagnets are equipped with magnetic locking in a single position without consuming current.

Reversible electromagnets

Reversible electromagnets are models without a neutral position, the stroke of which is performed alternately in both directions, from one end position to the other.

Operation of control electromagnets

Presented in a fixed magnetic circuit, the copper coil is crossed by an electrical current, causing a magnetic flux and thus generating an attraction force that allows the mobile core to move. This remains in the bonded position as long as the coil is energized. When the power is lost, the core returns to its initial position.

Pull action mode

In this “pull” mode, the magnetic field created by energizing the coil attracts the core into the magnetic circuit and thus moves the load or attached system. Without power, the mobile core returns to its original position under the effect of an exterior force (gravity, return spring, etc.).

Push action mode

In this “push” action mode, a system or load is pushed by a through rod fixed to the mobile core (opposite the pull side) when the coil is energized. Without power, and as in the previous case, the core returns to its original position under the effect of an external force (gravity, return spring, etc.).

This device ensures the mobile armature moves when energized and stays in position when not energized by magnetic locking (permanent magnet). It is unlocked by reversing the polarity of the power supply to the coil. The return of the mobile armature to its initial position must be ensured by external forces (a return spring may be supplied as an option).

The magnetic force depends on the electrical power of the electromagnet and the size of the product. The duty ratio is the relationship between the duration under power and the cycle time (2 mins, 5 mins or 10 mins), which varies depending on its size.

There are five standard duty ratios (100%, 40%, 25%, 15% and 5%).

A 100% duty ratio indicates that the electromagnet can be energized indefinitely. Conversely, a 5% duty ratio indicates that the electromagnet, for which the reference cycle is 2 mins, can be energized for 6 seconds. It can be energized 114 seconds later under the same conditions.

The choice of electromagnet will depend on its environment, according to the various stresses :

- environmental : temperature, atmosphere, radiation, etc.
- mechanical : vibration, acceleration, weight, volume, etc.
- electrical : voltage, power (duty ratios), etc.
