Hello, I’m quite new to all this so sorry In advance if anything I say is relatively stupid or unclear.
I’m waning to control a proportional solenoid valve using a control dial. The solenoid valve plunger position is controlled by giving it an input of one of the 3 following inputs: 4-20mA, 0-5V or 0-10V. So as more voltage (or current) is applied to the solenoid, the more the valve closes.
I’m after the simplest/easiest way of doing this, so I’m flexible to what type of input I give the solenoid (4-20mA, 0-5V or 0-10V). The current Arduino I have is the UNO rev3 board. If this board is not sufficient then I will happily upgrade to a more suitable one. Can anyone give me an insight as to how I would go about doing this?
If anything needs clearing up please let me now and I’ll try and provide more information. Thanks, Elliott
