NEMA 1 panel with Solid State Relays
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 they will with regular mechanical contactors. The whole system includes heat sinks, special fast-acting fuses, a 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 backup 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 limited availability of 300-volt "T" fuses. Smaller 240-volt kilns like Easy-Fire, eQuad-Pro, eFL Series, and JH Series kilns are affected - check with the factory when ordering. This is not affecting 480-volt kilns like the Easy-Load and 480-volt DaVinci kilns.
