I am looking to use a MOSFET to switch a linear actuator on and off. There's nothing else on the circuit, just the switch and the actuator (and a Raspberry Pi to control the switch.)
The actuator takes 7.8V to engage and draws 1.26A of current. There's no datasheet for the actuator so those are all of the numbers I have.
- How do I pick the right MOSFET?
- What are important variables to consider?
- Is there some sort of website that I can use to filter through all of the options based on those variables?
