Connection Diagram of AC Control SSR

SSR or Solid State Relay or Electronic Relay Connection Method. This is a Thyristor Based Normally Open 230V Switch that can be turned on / off at a fast rate. This switches at Zero Crossover .Built In Snubber reduces EMI and protects the SSR. USE SAME PHASE FOR I/P & O/P.

AC-AC-SSR Solid State Relay

AC-AC SSR Wiring

  • No moving parts hence no wear and tear.
  • Dissipates Heat when in On Condition.
  • Use adequate Heat Sink or SSR will fail. ( 10g / Amp)
  • Dissipation is 1.5 Watts per Amp thru Load.
  • Input to Output is optically isolated 2kV.
  • This one is AC 230V Control AC 230V N.O. Output.
  • Off state snubber Leakage is around 5 mA.

Notes –

The Termination’s of High Current Lines going to Load must be very tight and crimped. Loose contacts will Spark and cause Fire. Fuse Rating of HRC Fuse – High Rupture Capacity (HRC) Fuse is Safe and Reliable. 5kW Heater at 230V is 5,000 / 230 in Amps of Fuse Rating.

Analog Blind Dial On Delay Timer

It is called analog dial timer as it has no digital display, but the chip is digital it is CD4541. It is Mains operated, you could make on-delay or off-delay. By changing the caps and resistors or with even dip-switches you could get timing of few seconds to many hours. Circuit is Analog Timer 4541 .

Analog Blind Dial On Delay Timer

Some timers energize the relay after a set delay on power start. Some start with relay energized and turn off after set time. Motors and big systems cannot take fast turn-on and turn-off, Some systems will require sections or modules to start one after another as they are interdependent. So Timers in automation were made to effect such delays, the early ones were mechanical clockwork.

Analog Timer

The CD4541BC Programmable Timer is designed with a 16-stage binary counter, an integrated oscillator for use with an external capacitor and two resistors, output control logic, and a special power-on reset circuit. The special features of the power-on reset circuit are first, no additional static power consumption and second, the part functions across the full voltage range (3V¨C15V) whether power-on reset is enabled or disabled.

  • Available division ratios 28, 210, 213, or 216.
  • Increments on positive edge clock transitions.
  • Built-in low power RC oscillator.
  • Oscillator frequency range . DC to 100 kHz.
  • Power on Auto reset initializes all counters.

Two Stage Sequential Timer

This is an example of a cascaded or sequential timer, here two CD4541 are forming a two stage timer. You can add more in a chain, but better to use a microprocessor or Microcontroller for such a purpose. But make sure EMI-RFI immunity is high for these circuits or wrong resets and sets can make a machine like an Oven or Environment Chamber malfunction and even ruin the job.

Two Stage Sequential Timer

U5B a flip-flop is used for the control switches Start and Stop to prime or shutdown the sequential cycle. The first timer U2 sets the flip-flop or register U5A after a period T1, this register turns the relay on thru Q3. The second timer U4 which was triggered by the first will reset the U5A after time period T2, U5A then shuts down relay. U5A also then resets entire process thru U3C and U3D.

Timer and Counter Modules

U1 CD4541 is a Timer with Long Duration Ability. This timer is started by a low pulse from earlier circuit, when the temperature goes above setpoint, a low state is at U2A inputs, this starts the timer. The timer output goes high after a preset time. U2C-D Flip flop is power on reset via cap C7. Even a manual ‘reset’ is used if required. This alarm toggle is ‘set’ when The temperature remains high even after the preset time period of U1.

Timer and Counter Modules

A digital counter monitors the number of times a process goes beyond a certain temperature limit over a long cycle of time. This circuit has a Analog Timer and Digital Counter. The Analog timer turns on an Alarm if the Temperature Limit transition is very long.
