Crydom (Solid State Relays) Solutions for Heating Industry

 clogo.jpg

Crydom Solid State Relays (SSRs) are widely used in the heating industry. By specifying the Random Turn-on versions, Crydom SSR’s can be used as proportional controllers for varying power to resistance type heaters. Applied in a more basic way, when used in conjunction with “on-off” style temperature controllers, Crydom SSRs can be used as a power cycling switch without concern for contact arcing, burning, or the resultant reduction of life expectancy.

With the wide range of SSR types available, Crydom relays can be selected and used to control Quartz lamp, ceramic, infrared, CalRod, cartridge, immersion, strip, and band type heaters among many others. In addition, SSR’s can control fuel valves, blower motors, damper motors, and serve as the interface between thermostats and their primary equipment.

The Crydom MCTC Series of micro-controlled SSR/temperature controllers can be used as a stand alone temperature controller where a compact, low cost solution is required. The MCTC eliminates the need for a separate controller and SSR assemblies, by combining both into one standard size SSR package.

Crydom Solid State Relays (SSRs) are widely used in the food equipment industry as replacement to mercury contactors and electromechanical relays because of their ability to work in harsh environments. Since there are no moving parts contact wear is eliminated and their semiconductor based design makes them environmentally safe to be used in most applications including; ovens, fryers, heaters broilers, food warmers and holding equipment, and coffee makers.

Their epoxy sealed design even allows use in moisture prone applications such as produce misting systems found in grocery stores. Using Random Turn-on type Crydom SSR’s provides the ability to vary the available power to resistance type heaters by using burst control and with the availability of the new Crydom MC series of Temperature Proportional and Burst control products, the solutions are even easier than before.

Crydom Launches New Temperature Control Solid State Relay.

 clogo.jpg

Crydom the leading manufacturer of Solid State Relays (SSR’s) has launched a completely new range of microcontroller based devices. The MCTC is a self contained temperature controller in a single industry standard panel mount package.

The series combines all the necessary functions to accurately regulate temperature. With a simple set up procedure, they provide accurate control for designers for heater and cooling loads of up to 90A AC.

The MCTC requires a non-regulated low drive current DC source (10-32Vdc, 32mA max). The devices have an internally compensated thermocouple input, set to accept J or K types. Five available temperature ranges offering heating control over 37°C to 590°C and an inverse function for refrigeration down to –73°C. Setpoint adjustment is achieved by either low voltage dc or 4-20mA inputs. There is also separate enable/disable input to switch the load.

Integrated zerocross burst firing and proportional derivative control avoids setpoint overshoot. Operators can easily see the controller’s status with separate LED indication for setpoint condition and output status. Load voltage switching can be either 280Vac or 480Vac suitable for both single and three phase systems. Connections are simple screw connections both control and load side. The industry standard package makes it suitable for Crydom’s range of heatsinks.
