I am trying to run around 100 24v solenoids with a low amperage power supply. I originally thought when I began trying to run the solenoids I would go with a 100 amp power supply as each solenoid is about an amp. High 24v Power supplies are not only hard to come by but also usually very expensive and big.
Each solenoid is on frequently, never are they on at the same time, however I would like it to be possible to turn all on at the same time, in case me or anyone who is trying control my solenoids has full control over what they are doing and are not limited. I would say most of the time 70 of the solenoids are on. My question is, how low amperage power supply could I use? Thank you
