Brief Current Peaks – Fatal Consequences
When lighting systems are switched on, significant current peaks occur that reach more than 100 times the rated current. Even if this peak lasts for just a few milliseconds, it can cause the relay contacts to fuse.

Maximize Space in the Control Cabinet
New Solid-State Relay Module with Lower Power Dissipation at Higher Load Current
Maximizing the limited space available is the primary goal in control cabinet manufacturing. WAGO's new solid-state relay module (SSR module) can help: It switches a limiting continuous current up to 8 A. Due to low power loss, significantly less heat is generated. Thus, with the same total power loss, a higher packing density, i.e. a larger number of switching elements, can be realized in the control cabinet.
SSR modules are ideal for applications where a coupling level between the PLC and the load to be switched is required. Because they work without moving parts, there is no mechanical wear. As a result, they achieve a long service life, switch noiselessly and are unaffected by shock and vibration. WAGO's SSR modules use sockets that are pin-compatible with standard relays. This greatly simplifies relay replacement.
