OpenSprinkler Forums Hardware Questions OpenSprinkler Pi (OSPi) Cannot turn Solenoid off Re: Re: Cannot turn Solenoid off



Hey both, wanted to keep this post up to date for other UK purchasers.

So it seems almost impossible to find a AC to AC transformer in the UK, after getting a second transformer online that was AC to DC I ended up walking into a Maplin store to pay an outrages £20 for a AC to AC adaptor:
AC 24v

Please to say this works great, but im not that happy with the quality of the transformer – its very large and makes a loud buzzing noise.

Im going to be in US for work next month, so going to order a Rain Bird UT1 Sprinkler System Timer Electric Transformer from amazon:

Maybe a DC model of the OpenSprinkler system could be produced for us UK people 😉
