D5400 – Micro Solenoid Driver Power Converter

The Canfield Connector Series D5400 Micro Solenoid Driver is a NEMA 4 DIN 43650 Form “A” / ISO 4400, EN175301-803:2000 and MINI type connector with a built in electronic circuit used to induce solenoid pull-in and reduce holding current. The time proven MSD has been designed into many applications where heat buildup occurs which reduces operating efficiency and life span of solenoid valves. The MSD has two main functions: one is to induce faster or stronger than usual response times at solenoid pull-in, the second is to reduce the net wattage of the solenoid during hold-in. The MSD drives the coil with a high input voltage for a fixed time period until the coil has shifted at which time the MSD reduces the holding voltage, which saves power, and the solenoid runs cool. The MSD is often used to replace low voltage power supplies where a 24 VDC solenoid valve can then be operated by 120 VAC. The Alternating current is rectified and the duty cycle reduced so as to operate the valve at proper voltage and wattage ranges. An additional advantage can be found when the MSD drops the holding voltage, which then reduces heat and current requirements.
