I want to create an automated irrigation system. So i planned to use the
Hunter PGV 1" (24VAC) and control the valves with a arduino. First I
thought this would be easy to use a relays, SRR or triac to control the
24V AC and turn the power to the valves completely on or off. But then
saw 2 different currents in the datasheet (370 mA inrush, 210 mA
holding, 50 HZ). So my question is how do I set this 2 currents? Can I
use a normal transformer with enough current and the solenoid valve take
just this ideal current or would I just smoke these valves?
I added my amateur paint schematic of my idea, hope you can help me out.
Btw. I want to control 2 seperate valves.
