I recently purchased a 110VAC solenoid and wanted confirm the best way to power it (see link below):
The solenoid has a 12W power rating. Would I be alright if I powered it from a typical 120V wall outlet? Would the using a 120V power source for a 110V solenoid have any negative consequences? From what I have gathered, AC solenoids self-limit the amount of current they draw once they open. Is my thinking correct? I am only planning to open the solenoid for a short duration each use (<5 seconds).
I am sure this is a very basic question for someone with electronics experience, but I would certainly appreciate any responses to either direct me or put my mind at ease. Thank you for your time.
