solenoids for jumping robot
« on: October 13, 2010, 02:46:53 AM »
what type will be more effective a push solenoid that pushes plunger or a pull when the plunger is released and uses the spring?

The push type will be stronger.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

i understand that the push type will be stronger but for a jump i will need abrupt release of energy that  i think i will get from a pull type.what do you think?

I think you shouldn't waste peoples time asking questions if you already made up your mind!

It's simple math. The more power the better (up to a limit of course).
The spring return is much weaker, as the solenoid need the power to do its work AND the power to overcome the spring return at the same time.
That's how it is, but do whatever you feel like.
