Hi all, newbie here so be gentle! I have some electronics knowledge but am very rusty.
My question is thus:
I intend on controlling a 24v solenoid valve via a photocoupled mosfet tlp241a The maximum power of the coil will be 20w (hopefully 10-15w when all is said and done)
Now because the solenoid is an inductive load i believe ill need a snubber.
I was origonally thinking a 1n5404 diode. Would this be sufficient? Or overkill?
Or am i better to look at a capacitor and resistor combo?
Or something else.
Im looking for a reliable, cheap and simple solution.
Thanks in advance to all who reply!
