Nijkerk Electronics extends its Power Products portfolio with Solid State Relays from Sensata – Crydom

|03 April 2024

In addition to the electromechanical contactors and the thermal fuses Nijkerk Electronics has added Solid State Relays (SSR) to its portfolio of Sensata products. A Solid State Relay is an electronic component that switches Power (AC or DC current) to a load circuit and provides electrical isolation between an application’s control circuit and load circuit. It is a competitive technology to Electromechanical Relays (EMRs) and other switching technologies such as Mercury Displacement Relays (MDRs). Solid state switching technology can also be combined with EMR technology to produce a switching device with hybrid technology.

Why use Solid State Technology?

  • Long life
  • Quiet operation
  • Minimal electrical noise
  • Low power consumption
  • Shock and vibration resistant
  • Fast switching
  • Reduced weight and energy cost

Typical applications:

Motion Control

Includes conveyor systems, solar trackers, fans, solenoid, valve control,
elevators, lifts, hoists, and exercise equipment.

Heating Control

Applications include: professional food equipment, plastic molding/extrusion
machinery, HVAC&R and soldering equipment.

Power Control

Includes power supplies, transformers, regulators, inverters, converters, UPS
systems, etc. as well as any load that is not specifically for heating, lighting or
motion control.

Lighting Control

These applications are usually broken down into three categories: theatrical,
warehouse and commercial. Many of the products used in this segment are
custom designed.
