Press Release Summary:
Containing 2 solid state relays, Model 3053 features max DC switching voltage of 40 Vdc, max AC switching voltage of 28 Vac, and max switching speed of 300 Hz at zero load. Opto-isolation between control inputs and outputs of SSR in form of GaAs LED paired with set of optically controlled MOSFETs provides protection from output to input. Relay is suited for controlling large loads and devices such as AC or DC motors, electromagnets, solenoids, and incandescent light bulbs.

Phidgets Adds the 3053 - Dual SSR Relay to Its Family of Relays
The 3053 can switch up to 9 Amp at up to 40 VDC or 28 VAC.
CALGARY, Alberta, - Phidgets Inc. released today the 3053 - Dual SSR Relay. The 3053 contains 2 SSR relays for switching up to 9 Amp at up to 40VDC or 38VAC.
"The 3053 fits nicely within our family of relays providing a Solid State alternative to the 3051 - Dual Mechanical Relay board for users who need a 2 relay board and do not require the higher voltage supported by the 3051." says Chester Fitchett, CEO of Phidgets.
"We will keep selling the 3052 - Single SSR Relay Board for users who only need a single relay board." added Bernard Rousseau, Director of Marketing

"Unlike a lot of our competitor's products that require their users to write some firmware code in order to use their sensor, we are completely "Plug and Play" says Bernard Rousseau, Director of Marketing. "With Phidgets, you plug it in and start using it and when it comes to programming, the user, not us, decides which operating system and which computer language he wants to use", added Rousseau.
Users can program Phidgets using a simple yet powerful and well documented Application Programming Interfade (API) that is supported under Windows (2000, XP, Vista), Windows CE, Mac OS X, and Linux. Users can write programs in Visual Basic, VB.NET, C#, C/C++, Flash/Flex, Java, Labview, Matlab, ActionScript 3.0, and Cocoa.
Phidgets also provides programming examples for all its products to help programmers write their own programs. The API Libraries as well as the examples and the documentation are available at no charge on Phidgets.com.
