SSR with AC Reversible Motors?

Post by om_tech_support_JT » Fri Mar 30, 2012 3:59 pm

Q: Can I use a SSR (solid state relay) to instantly reverse the rotation direction of your AC reversible motors?

A: When instant forward/reverse operation is controlled with an SSR, the SSR characteristics can cause shorts in the circuit. Time must be allowed between switching from the SSR for clockwise rotation to the SSR for counterclockwise rotation.
