  • did you ever figure out how to make it work for you.

  • I just purchased some of these solenoids,. I am designing a project to drive each soleniod with the 74hc595 shift registers that are being feed by an arduino. I was wondering what mosfet transistors you used in your design. I am wanting to run them contiuously, and have tested at 5v, and .2A, and they seem to do fine. I am wanting to run them individually, but can get the voltage not to drop on the coil when engaged. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

No public wish lists :(
