Hi, i would like to connect a 24 VAC electrovalve to the raspberry. I saw some pages on the web, but it´s not very clear for me.
Rasperry is 5v (dc)
Electro Valve is 24vac
I have a Relay so that i can connect a GPIO from the raspberry and turn that valve on.
For that what i understand, at this point i need two different power supplies...
Is there anyway to use just one power supply ? Like having a power supply 24VAC and somehow converting it to 5VDC to connect the rasperry pi? I was thinking about dc-dc converter, but the valve and the relay working on ac... Is there any alternative to use just one power supply ?
Let´s PI !
