Can Etek2 Board handle Mac Solenoid

Ok, the boys on the nation are slow to respond, plus I think you guys have better airsmithing skills over here.

It seems that the Mac noids were used with some of the Ego series markers, but not on the Etek.

Is the Etek 2 board able to properly power a Mac 5 V, 4.7 Watt Mac noid?

The model # specifically is the 43A-AAA-RFEJ-OBL.

Since the stock SMC noid is barbed, the Mac solenoid should fit in an Etek2 frame, but the board might not have the juice to power it.

Thanks.

Just going from this chart I would think it'd work; since the Etek is based on the 07/08 (from what I remember)

I emailed a few Planet Eclipse team members on a similar concept. This is verbatim what was told to me by 7lash (aka Steve Monks).


Hi,

The SL8r board is designed to drive the 5V solenoid that is used in the SL8r so it will not drive the 6V solenoid that is used in the Etek, sorry.

Kind Regards,
Steve


Also

The solenoid voltage is 5V on any board that drives a Mac solenoid, including the SL74.

Regards,
Steve

Ok, thanks.

Well the marker Etek that I just received had a mac 43 noid in it, but I was told it was blown. It appears that is the case, although it does hold air. It does not properly cycle when activated by the Etek 1 or Etek 2 board. I opened it up, and it appears that the spool is partially stuck, and wont move properly. I cant get the backend off the housing to check the spring.

I see that the same noid is available for $10 shipped on eBay, so I might as well pick that up.

Also the etek 2 board I have, the middle LED is bad, so there might be more wrong with that board.

Thanks for your help guys.

I would make sure you buy it from Deathwish. He provides help and warranty if you buy from him. He's on here and, I believe, he also sells them on Ebay.

Yea, from the remodel link from Jaccen: (do a search on ebay for MAC 43 - in the paintball category - the seller is user Deathwish_DW on here)

FYI, sent DW a PM on here, save him the ebay fees if I can. Thanks.
