  • Solenoid

    i have two solenoids which i guess are dual voltage, have 240/120 stamped on them, look just like a spotting solenoid. unlike i guess what you would call "dedicated" 120 solenoids, this has the usual 2 prongs sticking out of it, and 2 wires (black and white) coming from the coil on the other side. how do i wire that up to work on 120. i plugged a normal plug in using just the two prongs and then just the two wires, nothin. and i dont wanna take a chance on shrapnle flying, unless i get a longer cord. Thx

    Yes, they are spotting solenoids. If you have those chair terminals, just put the black wire on one prong and the white on the other and connect you 120v to the terminals.

        thx kingram, i was a tad nervous about reversing the black and white wires or sometin, but i guess its idiot proof. at least i hope it is.

          Coors: polarity is not a problem with AC voltage where the solenoid is concerned. Motors and lights will operate also either way, however neutral should always go to neutral and hot (line) is generally the switched side.

            Coors in Australia when we get those Solenoids, we have to cut and strip the ends of the floating wires, than solder them together, this is for 240 volts.

              Two coils;
              serial = 220V
              parallel = 110V
              So it goes.
