Solenoid Valve total resistance?

Not open for further replies.

Hello EveryBody...!
Can anyone say me the practical procedure to calculate total resistance, current, power of a 24v solenoid valve.

Connect 24V to the solenoid. Connect an ammeter inline with the solenoid and measure current. R = V/I, P = VI.

And an AC coil will not measure a DC resistance that will make sense for the ohms law calculation since you're needing inductive reactance and/or impedance for that calculation.
