    To find out the amperage, only divide Watts by Volts. 3w / 24 volts = 0.125 Ampere.

    I think the 3w stands for 3 way... it's a solenoid for a 3 way hydraulic valve.

    [QUOTE = "Optimal Irrigation Corp., post: 6139286, membro: 208640"] Ok, o temporizador Pro-HC enviará um alerta de sobrecorrente em mA para mais de 880 mA. Portanto, pela imagem do relatório de carga do solenóide que você enviou, a zona 7 está em 920 mA .... que é superior a 880 mA e a razão pela qual você está recebendo o alerta de sobrecorrente.
    Precisamos descobrir por que você está desenhando tantos mA. Enviei um email para Raphael para ver se eles podem fornecer as especificações de mA no solenóide da imagem. Sei que você disse que é 0,125 mA, mas é melhor confirmarmos com o fabricante.
    Enquanto isso, tente ver se pode haver mais alguma coisa que possa estar causando a sobrecorrente. Por exemplo...
    • Um solenóide com falha
    • Um fio cortado que está sendo exposto ao solo úmido
    • Duas estações interligadas em uma saída e a corrente está muito alta.

    Sorry, I think that last message got lost in translation. I think the "W" on the solenoid stands for "way" not "watts". The valve has 3 ports (like in your picture).... that's what the "W" means on the solenoid.

    The "NO" on the solenoid means "normally open" which means the valve is in the open position... but on a three way valve an open valve acts the same as a normally closed valve on a two way valve.

    Hi Mate,

    I cheked the power consumption of rival companies of rafhael. To valves 24 V.... The watts is normally 3 watts or 6 watts to vales 9 or 12V.

    I'm really grateful with your yelp,
    I already owe you several favors. (Smiles)
