 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

hi there i am new in the community, sorry for my english.

 i just read this topic http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,10437.0.html and i learn a bit about SSR with zero cross trigger  as control method. Well here is the question i want control a water-pump ( 13A, 60Hz , 1HP,... ) and 2 exractors ( each 6.6 A  ) from this http://www.fotek.com.tw/pdf/etc_33.pdf  i chose a SSR-25DA model, but i am just 95% sure  about buy this, and i want be 100%. Can u tell me if i can control turn on/off the water-pump and the extractos with 2 SSR-25DA  when i want from my arduino MEGA???  and what about this  zero cross trigger method how many dealy will cause?? i read this method is for protection.

These should meet your need - but there is no guarantee.  The delay will be a maximum of one half cycle, so at 60Hz this would be around 0.008seconds.

By "no guarantee" I mean I have given you my opinion only.  As writers on this forum we only give opinions - most, hopefully, are technically correct but occasionally some are incorrect.

The device operates at zero cross-over point.  In any full cycle there are 2 cross-overs, 0 degrees and 180 degrees.  Assuming your trigger has just missed a cross-over, the turn-on will not occur until the next one, which will be just under one-half cycle into the future.  At 60Hz the period is 1/60seconds = 16.666 mS, so 1/2 cycle period is 8.333 mS.  Hence, if you just miss a cross-over point, the next one will be a maximum of 8.333 mS away (ie the delay time)

Inductive loads such as motors and probably your pump should be controlled by random-fire SSRs, not zero-crossing ones. A zero-crossing SSR feeding an inductive load will turn off prematurely part way through each half cycle of power.

dam  smiley-sad-blue, i just bougth one SSR-25DA , so it will not work  for the water pump ?    maybe can work both extractors?, or one at least? (each extractor work with 6A),  :? ,

It might work, it depends on how inductive the water pump is. If it doesn't, try connecting a 100W incandescent light bulb in parallel with the water pump and see if that improves things.
