Solenoid Control, Testing, and Servicing -
A Handy Reference for Engineers and Technicians

by Robert Haney

Learn how to design, troubleshoot, and maintain high-performance solenoid-based devices.

Featuring photos, diagrams, charts, graphs, and schematics, this convenient handbook combines basic theory with control and testing methods encompassing a wide range of product configurations.

Find out how to assess environmental factors, analyze components, maximize efficiency, and implement reliable controls.


Solenoid Control, Testing, and Servicing offers extensive details on adding feedback and "smart solenoid control" to your circuits.

Coverage includes:
  • Electrical and electromagnetic principles
  • Resistance, inductance, and turns testing
  • Actuator and valve requirements
  • Clutch/brake and contactor/relay tests
  • AC and DC voltage control
  • Coil-back EMF and contact arc suppression
  • Voltage, current, and peak-andhold control
  • Linear and PWM proportional control
  • Feedback and closed-loop techniques



PART I: Testing

CH 1: Testing of Solenoid Coils
CH 2: Testing of Solenoid Actuators
CH 3: Testing of Solenoid Valves
CH 4: Proportional Solenoid Actuators and Valves
CH 5: Testing of Clutches and Brakes
CH 6: Testing of Contactors and Relays

PART II: Electronic Controls

CH 7: DC/AC Voltage and Current Control
