Solenoids are a great way to induce linear motion for pushing, pulling or controlling switches and levers. According to the datasheet this solenoid is rated for 36V but they work like a charm at 12V. With a throw of 10mm these solenoids are great for all kinds of motion applications such as actuating door latches, automating percussion instruments or just poking people.
At 12V the solenoid uses around 650mA when it's turned on.
The mounting holes are tapped for M3 machine screws
Note: The datasheet indicates a throw of 25mm however we've measured a throw of 10mm.
