Introduction: DIY Solid State Relay
Hello Friends today i am going to make a isolated SSR, As we know treditional relays provide galvanic isolation but it is electromechanical switch as its contacts damaged over time,so i decided to make a Solid State Relay For load switching.
Step 1: Optocoupler Triac AC Output 1 Channel 400VDRM 6-Pin PDIP
MOC3021 is a Otocoupler this component is responsible for switching main triac BT136 and also provide Optical Isolation.
Step 2: BT136
BT136 is a 4A 500V Triac used in this module to switch ON/OFF AC loads,
Step 3: Schematic Diagram
Assemble all the components according to circuit diagram, on PCB
As optocoupler gets 5v DC from Any MCU or Power Source its internal LED illuminates, then other Side PhotoTriac(Transister) turns ON( Optocoupler can either switch AC loads but it can handle only few mA current, so we utilize BT136 it can handle 4 Amps with heatsink, ) then BT136 also turns ON , NOW our entire SSR is Active,
- Not Robust as Conventional relays,
- consume less power
- provide optical isolation
- faster response time
- longer life
- no noice
Step 4: All Assembled Together
