Geeplus Europe Limited
We specialise in design and supply of advanced
actuation devices for your next generation products.

Linear Solenoids

Linear solenoids are on/off type actuators and develop force in one direction when energised. The return force must be provided externally, e.g. by a return spring.

We supply push/pull solenoids (optimised for high holding force), tubular solenoids (optimised for long stroke, also as 3-position-solenoids), open frame solenoids (low cost versions, also as 3-position- solenoids) and proportional solenoids (for position control).

products / linear solenoids

Geeplus offers a great variety of solenoid actuators including rotary solenoids, linear solenoids, open frame type solenoids both as simple on/off type actuators, as latching solenoids and bistable solenoids.

Our solenoids are „high performance“-products designed for industrial applications although in principle they are simple.

In case you cannot find the right product for your application within our standard products we are happy to adapt existing design with respect to electrical or mechanical properties or develop completely new products for you.

We differentiate the following main product groups for our solenoid actuators:



For all these actuators a so called Pick& Hold-circuit may be a good additional component. Pick& Hold circuits supply a higher peak current - and therefore force - for a limited time. In some applications this allows for a smaller actuator which might help to overcome size and weight constraints.
