Using solid-state relays to control electromagnetic brakes?

Q: Can I use a solid-state relay to control the operation of the magnetic brake?

A: If you use a solid-state relay to release the magnetic brake, you should try to keep the leakage current to less than 5mA, otherwise the brake may not fully disengage.
