  • Battery/Pneumatics questions

    Our team has noted that as the battery gets low some of our pneumatic 12vdc Solenoids do not function reliably. Would it be legal to add a dc to dc converter to the robot similar to the one at digikey Listed below to provide a regulated 12VDC or a regulated 24VDC supply to a second solenoid breakout on the crio?

      Kevin is correct, but the answer you will get is "NO". The power to any KOP control system is defined in the rules. They do not allow the type of device you are suggesting.
