Is it possible to produce over 1000 lb of magnetic force over a distance of 4 inches(0.101 meters), using an electromagnet? How difficult would it be? Explaining the general spec's of such an ...
I have a 24VAC/60Hz solenoid. I used 12VDC just to try, and it worked good (well needless to say it worked as expected with 24VAC/60Hz). What are the effects of a solenoid that's projected for AC ...
I need to wind a small electromagnet "solenoid?". About 3cm high and 2~5cm wide running at 5V/0.5A. This magnet will be put into a desk bell so it pulls the clapper down and rings the bell. I have ...
I'm looking to potentially build my own small solenoids, I thought perhaps that I could take an Air core inductor, a spring, piece of plastic, and conductive core and build my own. Is there a way to ...
This has been bugging me for a long time. Take this video for example. I have always thought that electricity will take the shortest path. When the electromagnet's windings are uninsulated, it seems ...
I wanted to use solenoids in previous projects and have been let down by the fact that I can't find them here in Egypt. Plus they are a bit expensive. My question is: is there an alternative that it ...
