Solid State Relays
Solid State Relay also known as SSR, is the 3rd generation relay directly compatible with programmable controllers, digital circuits and computers. It is highly demanded in the automation industry.
Solid state relays have the following advantages over traditional electromechanical relays:
Solid state relays have no contact points, they do not arc nor experience wear and tear.
Switching frequency of solid state relays may be 100x faster than electromechanical relays in the100kHz range.
Life span of solid state relays are typically 100x-1000x longer than electromechanical relays (~10^9 cycles).
