Manufacturers : Electronic components : Relays : Solid state relays

Solid state relays have been widely utilized in replacement of mechanical or electromechanical relays because of their many advantages including miniaturized configuration, elimination of contact bounce, low-energy consumption, decreased electrical noise, compatibility with digital circuitry, and high-speed switching performance. A solid state relay provides isolation between a control circuit and a switched circuit and may replace an electromechanical device such as a reed relay. There are many kinds of solid state relays available now. Most have triac thyristors that act as main switches which are triggered by diac semiconductors to provide a controlled on and off function. A typical solid state relay consists of a light emitting diode (LED) optically coupled across an electrically isolating gap to a photodiode array. The photodiode array is electrically connected to a output device such as a field effect transistor (FET). Light from the LED creates a voltage across the photodiode array and activates the output FET. A solid state relay has all its components made from solid state devices and involves no mechanical movement. An input circuit and an output circuit are electrically isolated from each other by a photo-coupler, and a load is selectively connected and disconnected to the output circuit according to a signal supplied to the input circuit. They are compatible with digital circuitry and have a wide variety of uses with such circuits.
