solenoid question

Unread postAuthor: pizlo » Fri Dec 07, 2007 7:55 pm

I have a plan for a phnuematic drawn up and the parts i would need in a cart on mcmaster. I have heard many mixed messages about weather a moded sprinkler valve(with blowgun valve,) or the electrically triggered ones are faster. So if some people could clarify this for me I would really appreciate it.
If you want to see plans I could whip some up in Ps.

a modded sprinkler valve is far better than a electronic one , it will open and close much faster.
