Help with triggering 120 vAC solenoid using relay circuit

Hello,

 

I have very much the same problem as this thread: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Output-to-trigger-120VAC-Solenoid-valve/m-p/1301358?lang=en

except one step further.

 

The previous discussion (cited above) ended with the discussion of the use of a relay to  address the issue of controlling a high powered device with a NI virtual bench and LabView. 

I have a weak background in electronics, but enough of a background that it makes sense to me to use a relay as a "switch" to control a high powered device. What I don't understand is how one constructs these circuits and makes the connections.

 

Could someone (especially those from the original thread), direct me to a resource on making such connections? Circuit daigrams would be especially helpful.

 

Thanks

Have you looked at some of the Arduino examples online? I know I've seen some for how to control 120v devices using relays.
