What Are PhotoRelays?

Classification of relays include two main groups—contact type or electromechanical relays and contactless type or semiconductor relays. While sub-groups of the mechanical type include signal relays and power relays, those of the contactless type include the solid-state relays and photorelays. Solid-state relays generally use semiconductor photo triacs, phototransistors, or photo thyristors as the output device, and such relays are limited to AC loads alone. On the other hand, photorelays preferably Read more [...]
