Hey guys!

I need some help programming a pneumatic FESTO magnetic valve for a school project.
It has to extend, then retract on command. I just need to get started, anyone who can help?



Would you care to provide us with a link to said item?

Here is the datasheet.


A link to information about this device would be a good start.

@mauerman, please do not cross-post.


From the pdf:
Characteristic coil data 24V DC: 1,28W
Permissible voltage fluctuation -15 % / +10 %

So it's like driving 2 24v relays (just not at the same time please), try searching for relay driver circuit (either here or google:https://www.google.com/search?q=relay+driver+circuit) and start hunting for a 24v power supply.

It's worth learning, since the same style of circuit can drive a DC motor, stepper motor, etc. (as long as it can handle the current) Then it's no harder than blinking an LED or two.
