Celduc® relais has just launched a new power solid state relay (SSR) with a current transformer (CT) built-in on the load side controlling a feedback status switch.
Heating control used in thermoforming machines requires sometimes connection or disconnection of the heating zones depending on the pre-heating area (foil size). Standard diagnostic relays or systems would display an error upon such zone disconnections.
The SOI range power ON/OFF the load and simply gives the information about the load current flow, leaving the status interpretation to the user or the system.
Applying/removing DC voltage on the control input of the SOI switches ON/OFF the output load current. When the load current is above the factory preset current threshold, the current transformer built in the SOI turns ON the feedback status switch. This switch therefore indicates the load current flow and allows the user or the system detecting correct or false operations:
