Open Frame Solenoids
Open frame solenoids come in C- frame and D- frame, where the shape of the solenoid frame resembles the shape of the letter. Both C- and D-frame solenoids are linear stroke solenoid types, where the C-shape ones are the simplest design for linear solenoids. D-frame solenoids have four metal sides surrounding the coil allowing for an optimum balance between puling force, stroke range and price. Higher performing D-frame solenoids have the frame made from a single piece of metal forming an uninterrupted magnetic field around the corners.
Open C-frame and D-frame solenoids typically operate on direct current.
