The WAS solenoid is a rebranded MAC 43 series solenoid. The WAS spiel about it being special and WAS being involved with the design is marketing or Jim Drew BS (which Jim was well known for). The MAC 43 is available in multiple wattages. You can get the same 4 watt version as the WAS noid from Air Soldier (www.airsoldier.com). I have two of them and neither one works with any of the NME WAS boards I have tried.

It's a VERY faint click. Almost nothing at all.

took me a while to realize it was working when I ran power to it without air. If you touch it, you can feel the valve operating in it and barely hear it.

which model mac noid do you need for the was noid to work w/o the capacitor? or does it require a capacitor regardless the wattage.

No capacitor is required as long as you're using the proper board.

Pretty much any modern Tadao or Virtue board will work with out the capacitor. Any Tadao Ebisu or Yakuza will work. I've tried several and also spoke with Will from Tadao and he confirmed any of them will. I've also tried several newer Virtue boards. They all seem to work.

Older baords seem to be the issue. Many of them are unable to handle the power draw of these MAC solenoids.

Anything will benefit, the problem is the internal resistance of the 9V

It doesn't matter. It's an electromagnet acting on ferrous pieces that don't have a magnetic charge.

Now if you have a solenoid that has a diode, polarity matters but that isn't the case here.
