Issue: Use Chime board for Solenoids board (Closed: Wontfix)

This is a V3 feature request related to " Use 74HC595 for high power output ports"

Conceptually there are different kinds of outputs. The regular FET output board should not really be used for Solenoids - people are better using the board with the 2 second timers to manage the output and ensure no problems (i.e Chime board). Two solenoid boards would support 16 devices which is enough for 10 playfield solenoids (left slingshot etc), 5 chimes, and a knocker. Having the knocker on the main board is still not a bad idea.

I would add LEDs and fuse to each output for added protection.

I don't see the distinction vs the other issue referenced, and anyway I think the same comment applies: if a user wants to do that, they already can, right?
