Solenoids for Diesel Engines

At Micromax, we specialise in providing a full range of solenoids including standard and custom solenoids for continuous, intermittent and pull-hold cycle actuation. Our solenoids have proven to be robust and reliable for over 80 years, capable of operating in extreme and hazardous environments.   

We provide solenoids that can meet all your stroke, force, voltage, mounting or contamination protection requirements. Alternatively, we are able to custom design a solenoid to your exact specifications.

The solenoids are available in single or dual coil construction and both are characterised by hard chrome-plated plungers and brass liners for smooth, reliable, wear-resistant operation – tested up to one million cycles. Our solenoids are also designed with brass sleeve plunger guides, strong steel housings and brackets and premium silicon rubber or epichlorohydrin solenoid boots to ensure long life and reliability. There is also the option of flange, threaded or base mountings.
