In this video, you'll learn about the other type of relays; Solid State Relays or SSRs. You’ll also learn how to choose among all different types of SSRs depending on your application.

You'll also learn how solid-state relays work and how to check solid-state relay with a multimeter.
We'll show you the Solid State Wiring with a practical example.

In the end, we'll explain the different types of SSRs. They generally fall into three main categories;
1. Random turn on solid state modules,
2. Zero crossing solid state relays,
3. Proportional solid state relays.

The Proportional Solid State Relays have two different types: The Phase Angle SSR and the Burst Fire Solid State Relays.

In the manufacturing of solid-state relays, no mechanical moving part has been used and all are made of semiconductors such as diodes, Transistors, Thyristors, Triacs, and so on.

There are different solid-state relay designs for different usages. For example, when you’re designing an electrical control panel's internal layout, you always need more space. So to save some space, we can benefit from the Slim design of Solid State Relay.

You can use solid-state relays as an interface between your PLC output cards and the loads out there in the process. However, as you’ll see in the future videos, the Thyristors, and Triacs are more intended to drive the resistive heating elements and therefore the Solid-State Relays which use these electronic parts in their output circuits, are also more applicable for these purposes.

They also have different names depending on their manufacturer. For instance, Photo Relays, MOSFET Relays, Solid State Modules, Solid State Drives, and so on.
