Small solenoid needed

I need a push pull solenoid with a body no longer than 30mm, with the diameter no more than 18mm.
Operating voltage can be anywhere from 5V to 12V.
Force of around 0.5Kg (maybe?) and a throw of around 4mm.

I had a look here and couldn’t find anything. Does anyone have any pointers?

(Please note the product is subject to a NDA so I can only talk in general terms)

If nothing on Core try Element 14 or RS Online. Both have many thousands of components, are in Aust and mailing service pretty good.

I eventually found GeePlus.

Now to find a distributor.

I looked and couldn’t find anything that fit my requirements. Thanks though.

Thanks Brian. This is a new commercial application, so in this instance that’s not an option.

Hey Dave,

Thanks for making a post, and glad you managed to find a solution!

Looks like the nearest distributor for these is in Japan:

It might also be worth getting in touch with their European division for Engineering support.

Indeed. The email I sent was answered yesterday by someone that obviously does not speak English as a first language, with a CC to the Japanese contact you have listed above, and this morning the Japanese person contacted me with very good english to assist in my enquiries.

So far, so good.
