SMC Heat issue fixed.
I'm not sure about you guys but the unregulated 24VDC 200mA transformer (bulky, heavy) made the solenoid heat up, I could barely touch the thing. Yes I know, solenoids do get hot, especially continuous use ones. SMC said it was fine, and yeah I agree it is fine, but *snap fingers NAW NAW NAW
Let try out the regulated *switch mode one shall we?
24VDC 1000mA Regulated switchmode, whatever you want to call it. If it's light weight, it's regulated. Not the heavy bulky class 2 transformer "bad adapter in disguise".
Found at a local store, you can find it online for about 4 bucks.
Crimp connection for disconnect, got a million of these for a dollar.
Both hooked up at the same time. Did the most scientific heat test known to man, I touch the things. According to my fingers, the results were pretty good. The bulky unregulated adapter was hot, the light weight switch-mode adapter was warm at most. I can accept warm, that is acceptable. So if you're like one and like touching metal things, just do yourself a favour and buy the cheap 4 dollar adapter.
