( As an extension to the question asked here ESP32 driving Solenoid requiring 2A/24V DC with IRF520? , I am adding this question with the idea to help more peoples with the results, since seems like it's widely interesting question with variety of wrong answers on the google )
So - I have ESP32, which must drive solenoid valve rated on 24V/2A ( 1" 1/4' (Ф32) pipe valve ). The issues is that it turned on that the most showing on google transistor - IRF520 can NOT drive it directly, and there is a need of complex circuit, which is some cases is not suitable for beginners or peoples which does not complicate their circuits too much. The whole idea is the driver to work in ON/OFF mode (not PWM).
- What could be a reliable, simple and widely accessible components circuit which could drive such solenoid valves?
