Solid State Relays
A solid state relay (SSR) is an electronic switch that contains no moving parts but can be used in similar applications to an electromechanical relay. In an SSR the control signal input controls the switching circuitry which in turn switches the larger load/output.
Solid State Relays benefit from having no moving parts which offers quiet switching, faster switching frequency, higher reliability switching and often at a much larger switching load capability. Switchtec is able to offer SSR relays capable of switching from 1 to 100 Amps.
Switchtec carries comprehensive stock of the Kudom SSR’s from the popular Hockey Puck style KSI Single and Dual Channel solid state relays, with current ratings up to 100 Amp 660VAC switching to the new 3 Phase KSQ Series.
Typical applications for Solid state relays are HVAC, Lighting, Industrial machinery, Control panels, Electrical Ovens/Heaters & motor control
When specifying a SSR, the following options need to be considered Maximum Contact Current (1 Amp to 100 Amp), Control Voltage (3-32VDC, 85-280VAC) and Output Voltage (up to 660 VAC 600VDC) to name a few.
