Conventionally I have always used a 1n4004 diode across a relay coil to prevent any back EMI. I have this solenoid application and was going to put diode across its coil. I have read previously that a fast recovery diode is recommended, rather thant the standard 1n4001-4004 series. Any thoughts on this?
