This relay connects to the 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16.
Just connect the positive control terminal of the SSR to the +5V terminal on the 1012, and connect the negative terminal to an open collector digital output on the 1012.
You could also buy the male connector, which is a Molex 50-57-9405, and crimp it onto the end of the cable, if you have the appropriate tools.
- When choosing a SSR, check the actual load current and the working ambient temperature. Refer to the characteristic curve in the Data Sheet and select the proper heat sink if required.
- Use the heat transfer pad between the SSR and the heat sink. Failure to do so can cause overheating and could damage the relay.
- Make sure that the SSR terminal screws are tight. If the screws are not tight, the SSR will get damaged by heat generated when the power is ON. Check the Data Sheet for recommended tightened torque.
- When an SSR fails, it most often fails permanently closed - leaving your load powered, and possibly creating a fire or safety hazard.
- You can use a fuse to protect your circuit from wiring mistakes and accidental short-circuits.
- Make sure that you use the relay within the product specifications.
