Food Equipment: Solid State Relays 

Sensata offers a broad range of Solid State Relays (SSRs) and Contactors that are perfectly suited for use in the food equipment industry. In the past, electromechanical relays (EMRs) were used extensively in these systems due to their lower cost, but they have been replaced in recent years with solid state relays because of increased use of digital control equipment.

SSRs are well suited for use with digital control signals because of their low input current and higher switching speed, which is required in most of these applications to maintain proper temperature control. EMRs cannot keep up in these types of applications. Learn more about Sensata’s solutions for professional food equipment here.
