ARCO makes a wide variety of OMC Solenoids. ARCO also makes three Solenoids that use 12 volts and feature isolated bases, SW268, SW288, SW580 and SW622.
SW288 is a replacement for OMC 172869. SW622 is a replacement for both OMC 395419 and 582708. SW268 is designed to replace OMC 985063.
Continuous duty solenoids are wound with very fine wire and draw very little amperage. The contacts in continuous duty solenoids will usually have a lower amperage rating than that of the intermittent duty type. These are normally used as tilt trim relays. This type of solenoid can also be used for a variety of applications where a remote relay is needed to power a motor or other device.
Intermittent duty solenoids are wound with much heavier wire and draw more amperage. The contacts have a very high amperage rating. If these stay energized for extended periods of time they heat up and eventually burn out the coil inside the solenoid. This type of solenoid is normally used as a starter motor relay.
