Equivalent SMC Solenoid, R8


Is it legal to use solenoid SYJ3120-SMO-M3 ? This differs from the part called out by VEX by a -F suffix, and it has two electrical connectors rather than one. It is from an older kit, since we can't find the -F part available anywhere.

Answered by committee

Per R8-f, legal non-VEX pneumatic components must have an identical part number to those listed on the VEX website.

If this is part is not listed on the VEX website, then it is not legal.
