Solid-state Relays Output Short-circuit Malfunction 1: Why do the Solid-state Relays output always use half-wave operation?
The dielectric strength of one Solid-state Relay channel may have deteriorated as a result of an overvoltage to the Solid-state Relays output terminal caused by a noise surge (including high frequency noise).
Example of a Phototriac Coupler with Deteriorated Dielectric Strength on One Channel of Optical Receiver
|Positive side||Negative side|
|Internal phototriac coupler dielectric strength||Normal||Detericration of dielectric strength|
Note:If the dielectric strength deteriorates on both poles, it will lead to a short-circuit error.
1.A surge voltage was caused by the load power supply, or other loads connected to the load power supply line.
2.An inverter-controlled power supply was used (including harmonic noise).
Reference Information Relating to Protection against External Noise
As protection against external noise, it is recommended that an overvoltage protection element (e.g., a varistor) is externally connected to the power supply line.
Connection Example 1
Connection Example 2
Note:Check the manufacturer’s information for how to connect the overvoltage protection element.
