    I am using labview and I'm using a national instruments cfp-2000 interface. I'm going to upload some pictures. I'm trying to use a relay to connect the valve to the interface. I'm wondering if I'm connecting it correctly. I got the braided red and black wire connected on the sides and the valve wires at the top and bottom. I can't get it to run on labview but the relay starts vibrating when everything is plugged in. Can anyone help.

    Measure the output to the coil and ensure it is steady, operate the relay without the load, is it a DC coil relay, are you sure you are on the coil pins?
