Hey guys, I was wondering why someone would need to run 70 amp relays instead of 40 amp. Is it whether your running a plate or direct port?
Is it the size of the solenoids being used? Some other reason?
Thanks.

Its the amount of maximum amperage the solenoids will draw. Higher bottle pressures will use more amperage to open while lower pressures will use lower amperage. I would personally overshoot the amperage rating by 50% (if max is say 30 I would use atleast a 45-50 amp rely) for a safety margin.. Also if you are using a fogger make sure to add the total amount of all 4 solenoids..
