Finding the Right solenoid

Post by dfox1787 » Sat Dec 03, 2016 8:41 pm


Im making a ball release dropper and im struggling to find a solenoid that will hold the ball in the tube. If one ball rests on the solnoid then the pull solnoid spring retracts slightly then when i load another it forces the ball through the bottom of the tube.

Anyone know what solenoid would be good for this?

I think it needs to be able to take more weight on the solenoid pin.

im using 12v battery for this project!AjG7N9TuKSm8mxqpfGSq1nFvKhHR

Couldn't get your link to work. Ideally you need to give us the weight is on the solenoid please. If you could post diagram in here we can help more. What is the solenoid you are using? these are fairly reliable, ... n+solenoid
