Ambient conditions for solenoids

Ambient temperature

During a time period of 24 hours, an average value of 35°C is not to be exceeded. The maximum range is -5°C - +40°C.
If a temperature of +40°C is exceeded, the power of the magnet must be reduced or the insulation class must be adjusted.

In the lower range, we recommend using a coil heater at temperatures below 5°C.

Relative humidity

The relative humidity is up to 50% at +40°C. Higher humidity levels (e.g. up to 90% at +20°C) are achieved at lower temperatures.

Ambient air

To ensure the efficient use of Kuhse DC solenoids, the ambient air must not be significantly polluted by dust, smoke, aggressive gases and vapours or salt content.
