    Hi all.
    New member hoping for an insight into a problem i am having.
    Will probably be very trivial to you lot.

    I am using a Pressure Sensor (this one http://www.ifm.com/products/gb/ds/PN5004.htm )
    to control a solenoid valve.

    The query i have is on the output from this device an how to get it operate a solenoid.
    The way i have it wired up is that i have put the solenoid between the output terminal (4) and the -ve supply (3) but obviously the device is reporting short cct when the output goes +ve.
    I had hoped it was a simple case of using the switched output to energise the solenoid but see now that this throws a SC error on the device.

    What do i need to stop this from occurring, im guessing a relay cotrolled by the switched output but a relay that doesnt also throw a SC error.

    HELP :eek:

    The maximum output current is 250mA.
    What voltage and current does your solenoid need?
