I was trying to use some parts from an old toaster oven for a new project but have had to go back to basic controls as a more simple approach.
I need to switch a 110vac heating element that measures as 31-Ohms, which if my calculations are correct, comes to 390W.
I also need to switch an AC/Cap-start motor that shows "110v -- 100-Watts"
I am thinking two relays, but, both may be switching on and off up to 5+ times a minute and I am wondering if a mechanical relay is OK or should I go with SSR?
I'd like to stay with mechanical as I can use normal 2-relay (10A - 120vac) board. The double version of this... https://www.addicore.com/Single-Channel-Relay-Module-p/ad317.htm
I haven't found anything similar that has SSRs at a reasonable cost.
What kind of cycle-reliability can I expect from mechanical relays v SSR?
MODS! The forum posting-restrictions suck. I just tried to edit some spelling mistakes and now told to wait five minutes. That restriction is OK with individual post, but surely not editing to correct mistakes? I have made 59-valid posts so obviously not a spammer.
