    Default Higher power AC SSR

    I know a silly question, but I'm having trouble discovering a renard board where each channel can supply 3A of current.

    I'm looking to trigger a bunch of these fun devices....

    The SSR8 can supply 3a / channel, max 10a / board and the SSRhc can supply 10a / channel, max 20a / board.

    Make sure the triacs have heat sinks installed when running at these power levels.

    Old post to bump but does anyone have a photo of these SSR units with heatsink installed? Emailed Radiant about buying some but no response.

    You can always just get some flat bar and make your own heat sink. Of course the easy way is to buy them from radiant (I did). The problem you run into doing it after the fact is alignment may not be perfect or hard to match it up.... Easier to add the heatsink to the triacs and then solder them in of course. A DIY heatsink would solve that of course...
