When the Bi-stable solenoid is energized with a pulse, the shutter rotates from the start position to the secondary position. It will remain magnetically latched in the secondary position until an opposite polarity pulse is applied, returning the shutter to its starting position.

About Rotary Magnetic Solenoids

Rotary solenoids are devices which convert electrical energy into rotational mechanical energy. A magnetic field is created when electricity flows through a coil of wire (solenoid) inside the device. The orthogonal component of the magnetic field relative to the poles of an internal drive magnet is what creates the rotational force (torque) used to move the shaft of the device.

Miniature rotary solenoids can be used as rotary actuators for lightweight mechanical linkages.

Rotary Solenoid Configurations

All rotary solenoids manufactured by Brandstrom Instruments operate based on the principle of a spring-free, electromagnetic system. Mechanical and electrical operating parameters can differ depending upon application, but all rotary magnetic solenoids conform to one of the three configurations described below:
