Driving Solenoid using adafruit-dc-and-stepper-motor-hat-for

Hello,

Can someone please confirm if its is possible (& recommended) to drive a solenoid directly using the adafruit-dc-and-stepper-motor-hat-for-raspberry-pi ? Any concerns ?

I am hoping to attach solenoids below to Adafruit-dc-and-stepper-motor-hat-for-raspberry-pi

Thanks

Yes, it can be done. The HAT is rated for switching 1.2A and 12v. The larger solenoids will work at 12v, but will not be as strong as when used at their rated 24v.
