Exclamation How to wire solenoid valves????????

Yeah, I'm new to the whole pneumatics thing, does anyone know how to wire the solenoid valves for the pneumatic system? Like do you need a spike in order to hook up the solenoid???

Re: How to wire solenoid valves????????

Yes, you need a spike controlled via an RC Relay port.

The solenoid connects to the Spike M+/M- terminals.

A single-action solenoid connects the red wire to M+ and the black wire to M-.

A double-action solenoid (two sets of wires) connects one red to M+, the other red to M-, and both black ground wires to the ground on a fuse block or other appropriate ground connection.

the easiest solution I have used is just to connect the black wires to the V- input on the same spike.
