well folks, we have a problem. our solenoid has voltage going out of the tabs. but our solenoid isn’t working. any advice from anyone would be extremely useful.
This is a problem that a lot of teams are experiencing. Make sure that if you are using this years KOP solenoids that you have the solenoid breakout on the cRIO connected to the 24v output on the Power Distribution Board; this years solenoids require 24v to operate and if 12v are used the lights on the solenoid will change but the internal rod will not move.
If you are using the FESTO solenoids, they require at least 30psi to fire.
At least the solenoids that came in last year’s kit did, I’m not entirely sure about this year’s.
