Solenoid in 1LC board
How can I drive a relatively small but powerfull solenoid in a printhead with the 1LC board rev. 1.0?
Maybe could be use the hotend OUT0 pins than can drive 24v?
@marcossf please give the specifications of the solenoid you want to use.
@t3p3tony Still don't know the specific model. It needs to be 10-15mm travel and about 5N force.
Something like that:
@marcossf the out0 pins can drive up to 5A at 24V so the solenoid you linked will be fine but you do need to add a flyback diode connected in parallel with the solenoid, cathode to positive side, anode to negative side.
@t3p3tony Ok, thanks!
