# How do I pick a suitable SMD mosfet to control a 24V pneumatic valve with PIC32?

I need to control a valve (https://datasheet.octopart.com/VXZ242FGA-SMC-datasheet-110849414.pdf) of which I do not know its power consumption and drawn current. I don't have the part yet and usually it is controlled by a PLC, but for my application, I need to control it myself using a PIC32 microcontroller. It operates on 24 Volts and the entire PCB is made with SMD components, so I prefer to use one of those.

The worst case is 15 W on the DC versions so allow for $$\ I = \frac P V = \frac {24}{15} \ \text A \$$.
