A solenoid is a coil of wire which is used as an electromagnet. It refers to any device that helps in converting electrical energy to mechanical energy. It creates a magnetic field from the electric current and uses the magnetic field to create linear motion.
What is the purpose of a solenoid?
It helps to generate a controlled magnetic field through a coil wound into a tightly packed helix.
What are the different types of a solenoid?
There are different types of a solenoid and they're as follows:
AC laminated solenoid DC C-Frame DC D-Frame Linear Rotary
