The output force characteristics of a solenoid varies with its stroke or activation position. The load force requirements of the particular function or operation of the solenoid also usually vary with movement position. Thus, seldom is there an accurate match of the solenoid output force to the force requirements of its load over its stroke or pull-in movement range. Various linkage systems that connect solenoids to their loads have been developed to better match their respective characteristics. One example is in a Xerox Disclosure Journal publication Vol. 7, No. 5, September/Oitober, 1982, pages 305-306.
