Solenoids > Solenoid Applications: Solenoid Applications
Deciding if a solenoid is right for your application

Ledex Solenoids take the short and long view of our customers' problems and the possibilities for solutions. This is why we're the world's leading solenoid manufacturer. And, it's what keeps us the best design source for solenoid solutions - whether it's one solenoid delivered tomorrow morning or a half million delivered just-in-time over the next year. Machine and process automation can range from the most basic on-off function to extremely complex sequencing. When the process involves linear or rotary motion, solenoids are among the best actuation devices in terms of size, cost, simplified installation, and ease of use. Below are some of the primary functions which are ideally suited for Ledex solenoids. If your design includes linear or rotary operations, we can help you determine the best solenoid to meet your application design requirements.
Solenoids offer Exceptional Force or Torque
A linear solenoid can provide up to 30 pounds of force from a unit less than 2-1/4 inches long. A rotary solenoid can provide well over 100 lb-in of torque from a unit also less than 2-1/4 inches long.
Solenoids offer Variable Positioning
Soft Shift® solenoids for linear applications and BTA® Brushless Torque Actuators for rotary applications provide variable positioning capabilities
Solenoids offer High Speed
Solenoids can be actuated in milliseconds, or can be velocity controlled to provide smooth, noiseless actuation.
Minimum Size
Need low profile? Minimum volume? Small frontal area? Our solenoids can pack more work per cubic inch than motors.
Solenoids offer Simplified Control
Being a pulsed device with minimal components optimizes solenoids for digital control. This results in faster cycling and higher reliability with fewer interfaces.
Solenoids offer Uncompromising Reliability
Our solenoids provide repeatable, predictable performance with a specified life of up to 100 million cycles.
