When the load current is higher than 10A, a heat sink must be installed to the solid state relay, or the SSR relay should be mounted on a metal base plate with heat dissipation effect, and the thermal grease is applied between them.
When the load current is 40A or more, a fan cooling radiator or water cooling radiator must be equipped.
Tips: Over-current protection of solid state relay
Solid state relays (SSR) take semiconductor switching devices as power output components, and are sensitive to temperature changes. Over-current may overheat semiconductor chips, which results in there decreased quality, life expectancy reduction or even permanent damage. Although solid state relays (SSRs) in an instant can withstand surge current 10 times larger than the rated current, but permanent damages are likely to be caused if the current is more than such a value. Therefore, over-current protection is very important. There are many ways for over-current protection. The key is to fast response. For AC solid state relay (SSR) with SCR as output devices, general protection circuits are invalid due to current zero required by SCR’s turn-off if the surge current and short-circuit current are larger than SSR’s surge current within 10 Ms (50Hz). At this moment, fast acting fuses exclusive for semiconductor devices. Fuses’ nominal fusing current should not exceed the nominal current value of the SSR. There are a variety of commercial fuses, but their quality is different. Therefore, pay attention when choosing fuses.
