I'm relatively new to LabJack, automation, etc. I'm working on a research project that will require control of 3 normally closed, 12V solenoid valves.
I've been reading online about all the different types of relays and relay boards but since I'm so new to this, I easily get lost in the terminology. I'm trying to determine the best type of configuration to easily control these three valves while keeping things as simple as possible. I've read about the RB12 relay board and modules but I'm not really sure what exactly the board is doing or what the modules are doing and how to select the correct type of modules. What advantages would this type of setup hold to another type of solid-state relay?
Any advice or suggested readings would be very much appreciated.
