For instance what would happen if a 1/10th second pulse would produce a magnetic field that remained constant for 2 seconds or more?
Would that result be,.... less power consumed for plenty of torque created.....equals efficient?
BTW......Can i take this as a slight encouraging push in the solenoid direction?
