    I am a software engineer, but I enjoy tinkering with electronics and combining the two, so here I am!

    I'm looking for a small, DC powered solenoid (6V to 12V) that offers the longest "throw", or linear movement.

    Which solenoid would you suggest? Thanks in advance. (Apologies in adv for the lack of details on this project!)

    It would be helpful if you posted what your pulling with the solenoid, what stroke you need and oz or lbs pull required.
