Hope this helps.
In terms of my requirements, speed is good. They make larger versions of this valve, which i would also like to use (if i every figure out how to wire the things up!) so whatever circitry i use will need to be adaptable to allow me to fit different spec'd valves at a later date. (perhaps by changing the spec of resistors etc)
I don't really want to power this straight off of the arduino board (i believe thats not possible anyway) and have a 24vdc supply avaiable. it feels like there should be a simple arrangement of componants that will make this work. Problem is i can't find any other examples of anything similar out there.
any helps is appreciated!!
