Electronic Box Lock Help!? Answered
OK so I would like to use a solenoid to unlock a box from the inside, problem is the electronic circuit I designed inside the box operates on 3 vdc and as far as I can tell most solenoids operate on a voltage of 6-24 vdc. Is there any way to make a simple driver circuit for a solenoid so it can operate on 3 vdc?
Below is a copy of the box's circuit so far. I would like the solenoid to be in parallel with the "puzzle solved LED."
