Solitron Series solid-state relays integrate a heat sink into their design and offer prolonged application life as there are no electromechanical parts due to direct copper-bonding semiconductor technology. The integrated heat sink is located on the front of the relay, making it impossible for wires connected to the relay to touch the heat sink. In addition, a much higher air capacity flows across the heat sink as they are not obstructed by other products or wiring trays.
