Driving at maximum current output
« on: June 14, 2016, 05:44:57 AM »
Hello gurus,

Does anyone forsee an issue in driving a solenoid up to the maximum output current on an SC050 of 3A? Am I risking an overcurrent condition when driving it up this high?

I have been previously driving the solenoid at 2.8A

The solenoid in question is rated to 3.6A (3.2 ohms on a 12V system)

Thanks for your thoughts.

If you tell the controller to drive with 3000,0mA PWM current, it is OK. Why not.

If you drive to loads with digital outputs, it is better not to take neighboured ourputs: C1P31/C1p32, C1p33/c1p34, c1p35/c1p36 for example by MC050.
