Electromagnetic (EM) solenoid actuators are widely used in many applications such as the automobile, aerospace, printing and food industries where repetitive, often high-speed linear or rotating motions are required. In some of these applications they are used as highspeed 'switching' valves for switching pneumatic channels. This paper describes the finite element (FE) modelling and design of high-speed solenoid actuators. Operating at frequencies between 150-300 Hz, these actuators are uniquedoi:10.1088/1742-6596/15/1/050 fatcat:gxxk54fsmnhptbceaaj543mkqe
