GK0625 - Latching Solenoid Magnet (Permanent Magnet)

GK0625 - Latching Solenoid Magnet (Permanent Magnet)

Model GK0625 latching solenoid utilizes a permanent magnet in conjunction with a solenoid coil to maintain the position of the plunger with no current applied.

More Details


GK0625 - Latching Solenoid Magnet (Permanent Magnet)

  • Pull or thrust types available
  • Permanent magnet latching
  • Optional voltage ratings
  • Ø6mm plunger
  • 25mm x 13mm x 15mm frame size
  • 100% power 2.5 Watts dc
  • 2.1N force at 2mm stroke

Latching solenoids are ideally suited to continuous duty applications since even without power, the plunger and load will remain latched in the energized position. Applications for latching solenoids include automatic door closers, locks, latching mechanisms, medical equipment, security devices, and battery-powered equipment.

Solenoid Magnet Benefits:

  • No electrical supply needed
  • Cost-effective option
  • Reusable in many applications
  • Remote operation
  • Use less power, making them environmentally friendly
  • Versatile application available: hydraulic, air, and water controls


What is a solenoid magnet?

A solenoid is a long coil of wire that converts electromagnetic energy into motion. It does so by generating a controlled solenoid magnetic field through a coil wound into a tightly packed helix, which forces the solenoid magnet to create linear motion. It does then when an electric current is passed through it.

How does a magnetic solenoid work?

When an electric current is introduced into a solenoid, a magnetic field forms around the helix design coil of wire to create motion. 

Why does a solenoid have a magnetic field?

When a direct electric current passes through the coil of wire, it creates a uniform and strong magnetic field inside. It’s very similar to the field of a bar magnet. The coil design means that each turn of the wire in the helix design makes a stronger overall magnetic field. In addition, it has a magnetic field inside, so it can create linear motion and force the electrical current into movement. 

What is the purpose of a solenoid?

A solenoid’s primary purpose is to convert electrical energy into movement. It works by when an electrical current is introduced, a magnetic field forms around the coils, which draws the plunger in.

Is solenoid a permanent magnet?

No, a solenoid is a type of non-permanent magnet that will gain magnetism under certain conditions. It is unlike a regular magnet that needs an intervention by an outside force to break the magnetism.
