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.

The Canfield Connector Series 5JMSD is a solenoid driver circuit (Coil Saver) tucked away in our all new in-line electronics package coupled with our 5J all-molded DIN solenoid valve connector/gasket/cord assembly for DIN 43650 Form A, Industry and Form C Solenoid Valve Connectors (EN 175301-803-2000 ). The integrated gasket design boasts an IP67/NEMA 6 rating and makes it impossible to lose the gasket. Made from rugged yet flexible polyurethane, the connector housing boasts high durability factors and application versatility. The Coil Saver enhances solenoid valve function as it lowers the wattage of solenoid operators of solenoid valves as it first applies a full voltage to ensure strong pull-in then drops the current when the solenoid magnetic circuit is most efficient and lowers wattage during long term energization or repeated cycles and lower RMS wattage. Both the in-line Coil Saver package and the 5J are fully encapsulated enclosures. This design allows for the Coil Saver to be isolated from the heat of the solenoid as well as installed upstream, away from the coil connector that is designed for this heat. The DC voltage version is 1.83 by 0.60 cylinder and is IP68 fully sealed from dust and water ingress. The in-line package can control input DC voltage and supplies PWM DC to the coil. The Series 5JMSD is Proudly Made in the U.S.A.
