Electromagnets are a type of magnet that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. It is an electromagnetic device whose main characteristic is its great retention force with a moderate current consumption. The main advantage of the electromagnet over permanent magnets is the control of the magnetic field power, being able to control the amount of electric current.
There are different types of electromagnets with very varied properties, but from IMA we can provide professional technical advice to decide which the most suitable electromagnet for the function is.
The main characteristic of an electromagnet is to have absolute control of the magnetic force thanks to the intensity of the electric power applied. In this way, we can increase or decrease the power and make the electromagnet stronger or weaker. This advantage will help reduce consumption considerably. We also have the benefit of turning on or off the magnetic field of the magnetic product when necessary.
Different types of electromagnets can be distributed by current direction and their power as:
• Circular electromagnets• Rectangular electromagnets• Solenoids
