Future Electronics Adds “How to Select the Right Solid State Relay” to its Video Series

Montreal, Canada – October 30, 2013 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has added another how-to video to its series on selecting the best electronic components for various applications. “How to Select the Right Solid State Relay for Your Application” has been launched, along with many more helpful tutorials offered through the company’s YouTube channel.

An SSR, or solid state relay, is an electronic switch that contains no moving parts and that has the same use as an electromechanical relay. In an SSR a small control signal controls a larger load current or voltage.

Solid state relays consist of a sensor which responds to a control signal, a solid state electronic switching device and a coupling mechanism. The switching device is used in order to switch power to the load circuitry. The coupling mechanism enables the control signal to activate the switch without any moving parts.

Solid state relays are ideal for repetitive applications due to the absence of moving parts. Sample applications for solid state relays include medical, HVAC, professional food equipment, theatrical lighting, industrial machinery, control panels, elevators and lifts, and I/O interfaces.

Future Electronics stocks many of the most common types of solid state relays, categorized by Contact Current, Contact Arrangement, Output Voltage, Control Voltage, On-State Resistance, Isolation Voltage and packaging type. As demonstrated in the video, the parametric filters on the company’s website can help refine search results depending on the required specifications.

Many helpful videos have been recently added, with more being launched on a regular ongoing basis. For more information about solid state relays, SSR, photomos solid state relays, crydom solid state relays, clare solid state relays, photovoltaic solid state relays, SPST solid state relays, SPNO solid state relays, surface mount solid state relays, DPDT solid state relays, PCB solid state relays, PEWA solid state relays, SPDT solid state relays,  the how-to video series, as well as access to the world’s largest available-to-sell inventory, visit www.FutureElectronics.com.

Future Electronics Announces Availability of New Silicon Carbide Solutions from ROHM Semiconductor

Montreal, Canada – October 24, 2013 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces immediate availability of ROHM Semiconductor’s new Silicon Carbide Solutions, which push the performance envelope with low forward voltage and faster recovery times.

The SCS1xxGC Series, including the SCS108AGC, the SCS110AGC, the SCS106AGC, the SCS120AGC and SCS112AGC, are silicon carbide Schottky barrier diodes offering industry-leading forward voltage and fast recovery times.

They maintain low forward voltage (VF) over a wide operating temperature range which results in lower power dissipation under actual operating conditions. Low VF minimizes switching loss and enables high switching frequency, resulting in smaller passives and smaller end-product form factors.

Applications include Power Factor Correction/SMPS, Solar Inverters, Motor Drives and more.
