Learn about Solid State Relays - SSR

They are called SSR as there are made of semiconductors and have no moving parts to wear out. They do generate heat depending on load and switching. Thyristors are used in most as they are rugged, mosfets and IGBT may also be used for various applications.

Solid State Relays - SSR

In this section you will find SSR designs and PCB layouts which you can study. These were made and sold by me years ago. So the PCB layouts have gone thru some revisions and they worked quite well.

Applications -

Many machines and equipment use some SSRs in their products which may need replacement. So the SSR is not only sold to OEMs but also to Service-Maintenance Market. These are also modified as Output Modules for digital outputs coming from embedded systems or Computers.

Electromagnetic Relays - 

NO - Normally Open - when the relay is not energized or activated, this terminal is open-circuit.

NC - Normally Closed - when the relay is not energized or activated, this terminal is closed circuit.

COM - The Common Center Terminal in relays. This is the center terminal that closes circuit with NC-NO.

The terminals are potential free and floating and are insulated from the control signals or coil windings by many kilo volts. Many provide visible isolation. These terms apply to SSR or Big Contacters too.

CadSoft EAGLE Layout Editor - Autodesk

The EAGLE Layout Editor is an easy to use, yet powerful tool for designing printed circuit boards (PCBs). EAGLE offers the three modules: Schematic-Editor, Layout Editor and Autorouter embedded on one single interface.

 CadSoft Computer GmbH created Eagle. The company was acquired by Autodesk Inc. in 2016

CadSoft EAGLE Layout Editor

EAGLE is easy to learn, easy to use and easy to buy. It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows and allows feature enhancement, such as simulation, 3D-visualization, data import and export and self defined commands, through User Language Programs (ULP’s) which are partly integrated in EAGLE 

CadSoft EAGLE Layout Editor - Autodesk

The name EAGLE is an acronym, which stands for .

Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor.

The program consists of three main modules, Layout Editor, Schematic Editor and Autorouter. These are embedded in a single user interface. Therefore there is no need for converting netlists between schematics and layouts.

    Stepper motor driver TB6600

    For controlling stepper motors you need a suitable controller. It is possible to build controller using discrete components, controller ICs and using micro-controller. It can be fun to build our own stepper controller
