power adapter for solenoid


I'm currently trying to confirm how to power a burkert 2822 solenoid without burning my house down....

The solenoid is rated at 2w and needs a 24v DC power supply. Does this mean I can find any power adapter that says 24v DC, attach to the wires, and its good to go? Are there different types of 24v DC adapters? Basically...is there any way I could screw this up, lol.

Sorry if this is retarded question, I'm pretty electric incompetent....

Not likely to be any that won't work. Be sure that the one you buy is rated to put out at least as much as the solenoid requires. One with more power is not a problem. Just be sure it is 24 volt DC and enough milliamp. Watch out for 24 AC adapters. NO GOOD!
