Reply To: Solenoid stuck on & caught on fire


    The power board does not protect the coils from burning!

    there are 3 options available:

    1. Use fuses ;) using them is ALWAYS a good idea
    2. build or buy a Pinscape chime board. They have a hardware protection timer installed so the coils will automatically shut off after 2 seconds of continuous use.
    3. Set “flipper logic” to your solenoid outputs in the Pinscape config tool. Define a lower “current” (in fact it’s pwm modulation) after eg. 100ms

    if you need further assistance feel free to ask!


    and btw:

    youre lucky using a Pinscape as it has a electrical separation to your computer asa lack of that might have blown up your Mobo!
