What are the different types of Solenoid

We understand that solenoid comes in different types. Our store www.magemarinestore.com offers variety of solenoid that suits your boat at the most affordable price.  Some types of solenoid are:

  • Ground base solenoid where one end where the coil is grounded to the mounting base. This type solenoid must mount on a grounded surface or a ground must be attached to the base while Insulated base solenoid have both ends of the coil that insulated.
  • Solenoid equipped with relay terminal is a type of solenoid which is normally used for starting motors. Since conventional ignition coils operate on 7 volts, the relay terminal supplies 12 volts to the ignition coil during starting for easier starts.
  • Continuous duty solenoids are wound with very fine wire and draw very little amperage. The contacts in continuous duty solenoids will usually have a lower amperage rating than that of the intermittent duty type.

Below is sample solenoid we have in our store which are very affordable in price.

What is the significance of Solenoid to your Boat?

A solenoid creates a controlled magnetic field when an electrical current is passed through it. Solenoid is a tube-shaped coil of wire acting as a magnet when carrying electric current. It has a core material known as ferromagnetic that produce a uniform magnetic field in a volume of space.

The force in a solenoid valve is the solenoid coil, which converts electrical energy into magnetic energy that is used to modulate the valve. A solenoid valve has an inlet pipe that transports the gas or liquid into the solenoid valve. When the solenoid coil is deactivated, the force of the spring pushes the stopper back into place against the inlet pipe. An even more powerful solenoid uses hydraulics as its basis of power.  When the solenoid has released all of its energy, the hydraulic fluid drains out of the chamber and the piston is drawn back to its original position.  So you see, our boat can never do this well without the solenoid.

But of course, we must not just buy any solenoid.  We need to know what the compatible for our boat is whether it is mercruiser, Yamaha, Delco, Mercury or the like. That’s why in www.magemarinestore.com we offer variety of solenoid. Take a peak on some of it below.

How Solenoid Affects the Performance of your Boat?

A solenoid is a coil wound into a closely packed helix. Solenoids are important because they can generate controlled magnetic fields and can be used as electromagnets. Also, solenoid is a significant coil of wire that is used in inductors, electromagnets, antennas, valves, and many more. The application of a solenoid varies in many different types of industries. Solenoid can be used in a simple locking device, medical clamping equipment, an automotive gear box, and an air conditioning unit.

For boats, solenoid is a great help since solenoid can be used to actuate valves, it is also used in a variety of applications where air and water flow is involved. Solenoid valves, for example, are used in controlling water pressure in the sprinkler systems, air pressure in the air conditioning systems, and more. These are some of many reasons why we must choose and pick the right solenoid for our boat. We need to get the best yet affordable in price.

Good thing that here at www.magemarinestore.com you choose from a wide selection of solenoid products. Since we have a variety of solenoid, we are pretty sure that you can get what is appropriate to your boat. Check some of the solenoid present in our store.

Solenoid types and circuits

Many of the remote mount solenoids look identical on the outside. However, they can be very different on the inside. Beside the different internal circuits, these can be rated for continuous duty or intermittent duty use.

Continuous duty solenoids are wound with very fine wire and draw very little amperage. The contacts in continuous duty solenoids will usually have a lower amperage rating than that of the intermittent duty type. These are normally used as tilt trim relays. This type of solenoid can also be used for a variety of applications where a remote relay is needed to power a motor or other device.

Intermittent duty solenoids are wound with much heavier wire and draw more amperage. The contacts have a very high amperage rating. If these stay energized for extended periods of time they heat up and eventually burn out the coil inside the solenoid. This type of solenoid is normally used as a starter motor relay.

The Ground base solenoid has one end where the coil is grounded to the mounting base. This type solenoid must mount on a grounded surface or a ground must be attached to the base

Insulated base solenoid has both ends of the coil that insulated. A separate ground must be connected and this type of solenoid can be mounted on any surface.

Solenoid equipped with relay terminal is a type of solenoid, which is normally used for starting motors. Since conventional ignition coils operate on 7 volts, the relay terminal supplies 12 volts to the ignition coil during starting for easier starts. The base of this solenoid must be grounded.

What Solenoid can do to your Boat?

Solenoid is a tube-shaped coil of wire acting as a magnet when carrying electric current. It has a core material known as ferromagnetic that produce a uniform magnetic field in a volume of space. A solenoid creates a controlled magnetic field when an electrical current is passed through it.

The mechanical force in a solenoid valve is the solenoid coil, which converts electrical energy into magnetic energy that is used to modulate the valve. A solenoid valve contains an inlet pipe, which transports the gas or liquid into the solenoid valve. When the solenoid coil is deactivated, the force of the spring pushes the stopper back into place against the inlet pipe. An even more powerful solenoid uses hydraulics as its basis of power.  The piston or pin is seated in a cylinder filled with a hydraulic fluid.  As this hydraulic fluid fills the cylinder, everything is pushed forward, including the piston or pin.  As the piston travels towards a piece of metal or other target, the fluid buildup becomes very resistant to compression, and the piston will concentrate all of the cylinder’s energy on whatever it encounters, even the heaviest titanium. When the solenoid has released all of its energy, the hydraulic fluid drains out of the chamber and the piston is drawn back to its original position.  So you see, our boat can never do this well without the solenoid.

But of course, we must not just buy any solenoid.  We need to know what the compatible for our boat is whether it is mercruiser, Yamaha, Delco, Mercury or the like.
