Exploring Solid-State Relays: The Edge in Modern Kiln Technology

Solid-state relays (SSRs) represent a significant advancement over traditional mechanical relays, which rely on physical metal contacts and an electromagnet. SSRs use a solid semiconductor unit, eliminating any moving parts and thereby removing physical wear, greatly improving temperature control in kilns.

Advantage 1 - Superior Durability:

SSRs have an exceptional lifespan, devoid of the mechanical degradation and electrical arcing typical in mechanical relays, thus surpassing their traditional counterparts. Mechanical relays in standard kilns are often marked by a distinctive clicking sound, a sign of operation and eventual wear that necessitates repairs. In contrast, Evenheat's SSRs operate silently and reliably, significantly extending their service life to align with that of your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Unmatched Temperature Control:

The cycling frequency of mechanical relays is limited, striking a balance between control effectiveness and relay longevity, usually cycling every 10 to 14 seconds. SSRs, on the other hand, can cycle up to 120 times per second, allowing for faster adjustments and extraordinary temperature accuracy. Each Evenheat control system, including the advanced Icon controller, benefits from the rapid cycling of SSRs, ensuring exceptional temperature precision.

Advantage 3 - Extended Life for Heating Elements:

Solid-state relays employ Zero Crossing technology, activating at the zero-voltage point in AC power cycles. This approach prolongs the life of heating elements by maintaining optimal voltage levels, reducing wear compared to mechanical relays that lack this accuracy.

Design Excellence - 30 Amp Capacity:

Evenheat strategically selects SSRs with a 30-amp rating but operates them at a conservative 15 amps. This design choice provides a substantial safety margin, ensuring the SSRs function well within their derating curve even at a 15-amp load, leading to cool operation and prolonged lifespan. This reflects Evenheat's commitment to superior design.

Design Excellence - Externally Mounted SSR Heatsinks:

The longevity of SSRs is crucially dependent on effective cooling. Evenheat meets this need by externally mounting the SSR heatsinks, improving airflow and preventing heat build-up inside the control box. This setup prevents heat transfer between the enclosure and the SSRs, with standoffs creating an air gap for additional cooling. This thoughtful design ensures the optimal performance of the SSRs, supported by an impressive six-year record of zero failures.
