Many MCU applications use electro-mechanical relays to control AC loads. While this is an excellent solution for occasionally turning on/off a load it is not suited for frequent switching or PWM applications. SSR01 is an opto-coupled solid state relay that can control two AC loads up to 16A each.
Parts of this circuit are not isolated from earth ground and contain potentially lethal voltages. Avoid touching any part of the circuit when powered on.
Use a safety isolation transformer during experimentation and troubleshooting.
- support either PTH or SMD triacs
- optional support for anti-parallel SCR configuration (instead of triac)
- support either zero-cross (MOC306x) or non zero-cross (MOC305x) switching
- optional triac snubber
- optional I2C RTC clock
For zero-cross switching use MOC306x type opto-couplers, for random phase switching use MOC305x opto-couplers.
