    Solinoid Usage

    Hello,

    Question regarding overhead. The engine start switches of a B737 are using solinoid in order to return them to OFF position when the engine starts.

    Real aviation solinoids/start switches are way to expensive. So I searching I come upon this

    http://www.rapidonline.com/products....ier3=Solenoids


    Do you think is possible to be used for the engine start switch?


    Edit Apparently these solinoids are not good for the engine start so the search continues....
