Short-Circuit-Proof Switching Amplifier for Inductive Loads up to 10 A

The MICROOPTO family offers the customer high-quality optos and solid-state relays for application-oriented problem solutions. All products are designed in the space-saving 6 mm terminal size. The new solid-state relay can be connected in the output circuits of control systems and feedback control modules for selective activation of inductive loads up to 24 V DC/10 A, such as solenoid valves, contactors etc. The error controlled output monitors short-circuts and, if necessary, switched off; a potential-free signalling contact provides feedback to the control system – the system can be shut down in a controlled manner for error rectification.

The powerful output of the MICROOPTO SOLENOID switches 10 A at 55 °C. The product can be used worldwide thanks to international approvals: CE, cULus and GL.

The MICROOPTO SOLENOID solid-state relay is used specifically as a switching amplifier for actuators up to 24 V DC and 10 A with inductive loads such as solenoid valves and contactors. A potential-free signalling contact transmits errors, such as short circuits, to the controller. The MICROOPTO SOLENOID solid-state relay is short-circuit-proof and protected against power-related transients and voltage peaks by extensive protective circuits. The closed housing also offers a high level of protection against contact.

The solid state relay MICROOPTO 300 V DC has been developed as a switching amplifier for high inductive loads up to 300V DC and 1 A in motor brakes and contactors. A power boost in the load circuit compensates transient overloads (20 A for 20 ms / 5A for 1s) such as making or breaking spikes. Additional protective circuits counter higher overloads.

The solid-state relay MICROOPTO ACTOR has been specifically designed as a switching amplifier for actuators up to 24 V DC and 2 A with inductive loads such as solenoid valves and contactors. 3-wire actuators can be connected directly to the module. This is short-circuit proof and protected against application-related transients and spikes by extensive protective circuitry.

Electronic CO contacts are used anywhere output signals need to be changed over. For this purpose, the input signal is directly switched through to the output side and inverted; as a result, the opto module can also be used as a pure inverter. The advantage over electromechanical relays lies in the wear-free switching and the possibility of releasing high switching frequencies.

A special interior circuit in the opto module MICROOPTO 100 kHz ensures that rapidly transmitted signals are isolated from one another and that they can be transferred practically without delay. This allows switching frequencies up to 100 kHz to be achieved. Comprehensive suppressor circuits safeguard the module against conducted transients and voltage spikes.

To adjust sensitive TTL signals to the typical voltage level of 24 V DC used in industrial automation applications, the MICROOPTO TTL modules are used. For the protection of the electronics, the sensitive TTL signals require electrical isolation from the 24 V world. To control the optical coupler circuit via the 5 V TTL signal, an additional auxiliary voltage is fed in.
