    Control Circuit for Solid State Relay

    Solid state relays (SSRs) have plenty of types and models, so its input control methods and control circuits are numerous accordingly. The common characteristics of solid state relay (SSR) lie in the small drive current or drive voltage, namely, the on-off the SSR can be controlled by just inputting a small signal. If it is required to realize effective and reliable control, its input signal should reach a given value. As to the requirement to the working current of the input loop, it is recommended to switch on when the value is 5-10mA and switch off when the value is lower than 1mA. As to the requirement of the working voltage of the input terminal, it is generally no lower than 3V in switch on, and lower than 1V in switch off. Of course, because of the different product characteristics and different manufacturers, the requirement to the input current or resistance value is also different. Therefore, in using and designing the circuit, the selection and design can be conducted according to the specification and operation occasions on the basis of solid state relay (SSR) type. The following text introduces some basic methods and circuits of SSR input control.

    What Causes a Solid State Relay Burnout?

    Solid state relay, SSR in short, is the non-contact switch constituted by the microelectronics circuit, discrete electron device and power electronics power device. The isolation device is used to realize the isolation of the control terminal and load terminal. The input terminal of the solid state relay adopts the tiny control signal, thus realizing the direct driving of the high-current load.
    Then, we will mainly introduces the faults of the solid state relay burnout. How to test the SSR if it is damaged or not? What is the reason of the solid state relay burnout and how to deal with?

    Solid State Relay Price List

    Solid state relay (SSR) is a non-contact switch which drives a high-current load with a small control signal. The solid state relay consists of three parts, namely, the input circuit, the isolation (coupling) and the output circuit.Compared with the electromagnetic relays, solid state relays are characterized with high reliability, no contact, no spark, no noise, strong anti-interference ability, long lifetime, and fast switching speed. Now SSR are widely used in automation equipment, CNC machines, remote control system, instrumentation, medical equipment and so on.

    How to Select a Right Solid State Relay?

    How to select a right solid state relay? When selecting solid state relay(SSR), it should be based on the actual application conditions and SSR performance parameters, and especially take into consideration the overcurrent and overvoltage conditions in the use and the load capacity of SSR, which is helpful to achieve the long life time and high reliability of solid state relays. Then, follow the questions and find the detailed answers to choosing a right  SSR.

    Solid State Relay Basics & Working Principle

    What is a solid state relay(SSR)? A solid state relay is a non-contact switch fully composed of solid state electrical-element, which can drive high-current load with a small control signal. It can achieve switching on and off with no contact and no spark due to the switching characteristics of electrical element (i.e. semiconductor components like switch transistor, triac and so on). Solid state relay has such following advantages over electromagnetic relays: high reliability, no contact, no spark, long life, fast switching speed, strong anti-interference ability, and small size.

    Solid State Relays vs. Electromagnetic Relays

    Solid state relay (SSR) is a non-contact switch composed of solid-state electronic components with high reliability, non-contact, no spark, long life, no noise, no electromagnetic interference, high switching speed. Electromechanical relays (EMR) is a kind of magnetic switch made up of multi-coils, movable elements, contact system etc. and it is easy to drive and widely used in all the areas. Then what are they differences? Which one is better?
