• The History of the Rotary Solenoid

    April 9, 2019

    Rotary solenoids are electromechanical devices used for a variety of applications. They have a strong connection to Dayton and are vital for long life operation in challenging environments. What, Exactly, is a Rotary Solenoid? A rotary solenoid uses three ball bearings to convert linear motion to rotary motion. When power is applied, it rotates a ratcheting mechanism using an electromagnetic coil.
