Got the solenoid wired up and it's working well. I think today I'll try plugging it in for a couple hours and see how hot it gets.
So I plugged it in and 50 minutes later it's scolding hot. Maybe I use this short term and keep an eye out for an inexpensive, lower wattage one? Do cheap, low-voltage, stainless solenoids go up on eBay very often?
there is a solenoid you might want to consider, I've been eyeing it for two years, never pull the trigger...
cheap, low-voltage, stainless steel solenoid are super rare, that is why I release the information of different metering valves but not the solenoids, did the research around the same time, about 3 years ago.
metering valves are always available, especially the swagelok metering valves, but the really good solenoids, are rare, and due to different design and quality issue I have to personally get the possible models, and test them.
just like the stainless steel SMC VDW21 solenoids deal last year, I will inform the hobbyists if I see any good solenoids show up with large quantity, I will get some for myself as well.
