Product Description

Mini-Electro Magnets are the category of Magnets which get energized when electricity is applied to them according to the rating. 

They can be used for various applications such as:

  • Lifting
  • Conveying
  • Holding
  • Contamination Separating in Solids
  • Contamination Separating in Liquids


Energize to Hold:

The category of magnets which get energized when electricity is applied to it

Note: Ambient operating temperature is 35° Celsius and the magnets come with threaded holes in the rear face

FAQ for Mini electromagnet:

Q.  Can we use electromagnet for pick & place application?
See the video to get answer:

Q.  Can electromagnet attracting the metal parts from distance?
See the video to get answer:

Q.  How to see flux density on surface of electromagnet?
See the video to get answer:

Q.  How electromagnet is not suitable for sensor application?
See the video to get answer:

1. Can this magnet be used to sense the field at a different distances?
No. These magnets cannot be used to sense fields at distances. These magnets are essentially used for pick and place applications.

2. Is it possible to use this magnet to attract a body from certain distances?
Ans. No. This magnet cannot be used to attract an ms body from a certain distance, it may be possible to some extent if the bodies are either small in size or flat and long.

3. Can two electromagnets be used to oppose each other?
Ans. No two electromagnets cannot be used to oppose each other at a certain distance.

4. Can we generate a oscillating field from this magnet?
Ans. We can not generate an oscillating field from this electromagnet, it may be possible by passing DC current & AC current of some voltage.

5. Can we put this magnet in continuously on position?
Ans. Yes. These magnets can be put continuously in on position. However, their life can get reduced due to internal heating. We will rather advise you to use electro permanent magnets for such applications, power consumption would also be high.
6. Can we use adapter of 24V with higher current capacity?
Ans. Yes, We can use adapter of 24V with higher current rating.

7. How to connect the electromagnet?
Ans. There is a separate video to connect the electro magnet. Please see it on our website

8. What is the field it can generate at different distances?
Ans. We do not have data of this field v/s distance. These magnets are designed for close circuit applications and hence the field intensities are very low at a distances of 5mm from the magnet, we can generate this field but it may not be enough to pull but may be not enough to attract sensors.

9. Can we have customized size magnet to suit our requirement of pull?
Ans. Mainly no. We have standard range of electro magnets, it also depends upon MOQ i.e. minimum order quantity & development cost.

10. What is maximum surface temperature of the magnet if it is put on for few hours?
Ans. The maximum surface temperature could reach approx 70° C if the magnet is put 'ON' for few hours.

11. Can we send this magnet for repair?
Ans. No. You can not send this for repair as repair is not possible.

12. Will the winding burn of if it is continuously put on or someone forgets to switch it off?
Ans. The winding should not burn off even if it is put on for certain number of hours.

13. Will it lift the designed load?
Ans. The magnet is supposed to lift designed load under certain ideal conditions like thickness of job, job finish, job material etc. A fully ground block of ms material of designed specification can be lifted, using this electromagnet.

14. Can we have a different mounting arrangement?
Ans. No. We do not offer customized mounting arrangements other than those specified in the catalog. It also depends upon the MOQ i.e. material order quantity and development cost.

15. Will the magnet surface corrode over a period of time?
Ans. The magnet body is made up of ms and has nickel plating. The magnet surface may corrode if the plating goes off. In such a case you may apply paint to prevent further corrosion.
