Bidirectional solenoids


Bidirectional solenoids consist of two symmetrically mounted solenoids. This particular construction enables short and very fast response times between the two working positions.


  • short response time
  • simple control and activation (one coil for each direction)
  • symmetrical design, (time for activation = time for reset)
  • no loss of force due to return spring
  • very high life span due to double bearing design
  • bistable designs using permanent magnets are available.


  • sorting systems (e.g. coins and other parts)
  • switches
  • bistable designs for access control and locking systems
