Solenoid

[DNA] The solenoid defines the packing of DNA as a 30nm fiber of chromatin and results from the helical winding of at least five nucleosome strands. In eukaryotic cells, 146 bp of DNA are wrapped approximately 1.76 times around a histone octamer (each histone consists of 2 H2A, H2B dimers, and H3, H4 tetramer) which together are called a nu

Solenoid

A solenoid is a coil of wire with an electrical current flowing through it. An iron core, inserted into the coil, has the effect of increasing the strength of the magnetic field produced. An increased current or a greater number of turns on the coil will also increase the strength of the magnetic field. See also: Electromagnet

Solenoid

[mathematics] In mathematics, a solenoid is a compact connected topological space (i.e. a continuum) that may be obtained as the inverse limit of an inverse system of topological groups and continuous homomorphisms where each Si is a circle and fi is the map that uniformly wraps the circle Si+1 ni times (ni ≥ 2) around the circle Si.

SOLENOID

Solenoids are commonly used in 'dumb' cash drawers and incorporate a cable connected trigger which releases the drawer. Cash drawers with solenoids are interfaced to receipt printers that 'drive' them. Solenoids have different voltages and are integrated into the cash drawer dependent on the printer they are interfaced to.
