SOLID STATE RELAYS MAKE ELEMENTS LAST LONGER
Solid State Relays are quiet and result in longer element life because the switching time is so fast the elements don’t heat and cool as much the way the will with regular mechanical contactors. The whole system includes heat sinks, special fast acting fuses, cooling fan and extra safety relays.
It is possible to get this option with a High Limit Control as well and with our without Back Up Contactors. Note that the photograph shows a NEMA 1 panel with 6 SSRs, the safety contactors and the High Limit Control with its own set of back up contactors.
Panels with 6 circuits need to use the NEMA 1 panel (because fo the size required to house all the components) even if the panel is not 480 volts.
The SSR option is available on the Easy-Fire, Easy-Fire XT, eQuad-Pro, Jupiter, JH Series, eFL Series, DaVinci, and Easy-Load kilns.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Solid State Relays are listed on c-MET-us listed L&L kilns. (Not yet on Easy-Load kilns)
NOTE ABOUT CURRENT AVAILABILITY: There is a world-wide shortage of 300 volt "T" fuses. Smaller 240 volt kilns like Easy-Fire, eQuad-Pro, eFL Series, and JH Series kilns can not include the SSR option for a minimum of six months or more. This is not affecting 480 volt kilns like the Easy-Load and 480 volt DaVinci kilns.
