Thread: DC push type solenoids

  1. #1

    Default DC push type solenoids

    Hi I am making a robot in which I am supposed to kick a ball. I need a DC push type solenoid capable enough to push (kick) a 50 gm golf ball over a distance of 6m. Any idea if I can get it somewhere in India.

    Maybe you could get its somewhere but try & make it yourself.Its easy.

    Making solenoid is easy but no where i found the formulla or calculation for geting the magnitude of exerted force.
    Each link gives you series of formullaes but not it's application or example. If you still want to do it then do it and experimentlycheck it out that force exerted is ok for you
    Another problem with solenoid is that it drain too much current which may be critical and drain battery

    If possible use linkages and build your mechanism around DC low rpm motor if low ball velocity is expected or hi rpm dc motor with mechanical advantage to push it hard for getting max ball velocity

    Ulhas is correct,

    It drains alot of current & you will have to check experimentally the force exerted.

    Why dont you just compress a string using a motor and let it go when you need a kick instead?? I dont think you are making a robot with the precision of thierry henry or c. ronaldo .
