taking out this topic from its grave, because gardena's solenoid valve is not working in this way.scorp wrote:The solenoid valve most likely works from 5-9V. Try to apply 9V to those two pins for a second, then do the same with opposite polarity and observe the valve opening and closing.
Since you found the driving voltages, you need now a driving circuit which is capable to output them.pattagghiu wrote:the valve is opened with a "high voltage" burst (7V from direct from the battery opens it)
- the valve is closed with a "low voltage" burst (less then 2V, from a AAA battery)
Confirming that this valve (companion of the computer Gardena C1060 plus) can be controlled by this way.delta2112 wrote:Hi guys,
I know this is an old topic, but still I'll give it a try!
Did you had any luck with the valves?
My system is 9V, I can turn them on with whatever voltage > 7V whichever polarity I want...
Tu turn it off, I can use between 1.5-3.0V but polarity has to be reversed compared to the one used to turn them on.
Do you have similar results?
