I am using an HED controller with PWM outputs to control a hydraulic solenoid valve. My controller interface gives me live duty cycle output

my solenoid supplier sends me everything in mA control. how do i calculate the gap here??? any ideas thanks

Duty cycle x peak voltage = average voltage. From that, using the resistance of the vave, you can calculate the average current.
