Go to Post I find this ironic. In English class our teacher's tell us how there is symbolism and such, and we don't understand it or think its there. Then FIRSTer's get a Game Hit, and we think EVERYTHING is a symbol and has some significance. - akoscielski3 [more]

Solenoids

This may seem like a basic question, but I've never really understood the role of a solenoid valve in pneumatics; I couldn't understand the definitions. So, what do they do and how do they work?

Re: Solenoids

Theres tons of info that can be found here


Real talk though - there are a ton of threads (old and new) that answer a lot of the technical questions you're asking. Search around a bit, stumble through a few old threads - you'll be pretty amazed at whats buried in this site.

For the purpose of FRC, solenoid valves are what open and close the pathways for the pressurized air to move the pneumatic cylinders. When a solenoid valve is in one position, the air pressure flows into one port and causes the piston to extend. When the solenoid valve is the other position, the air pressure flows into the other port and causes the piston to retract.

Re: Solenoids

Strictly speaking, the valve directs air. The solenoid is the coil of wire & metal piece that moves in response to electric current that actuates the valve.
