I picked the thing up before doing a lot of research apparently because now I’m having trouble finding any examples of it being used anywhere and I can’t figure out of it will work on it’s own or if I need to assemble some sort of circuit around it. The only thing I’ve found using it is here: http://tutorial.cytron.com.my/2012/10/05/getting-started-with-ssr-s108t02/ and that seems to have a handful of other components. The data sheet describes a “snubber” circuit and I’m pretty new to this stuff so any tips or advice on wiring this sucker up would be super helpful.
My project is to compare two thermocouples (master and slave) and then use this SSR to control a small space heater to keep the slave thermocouple at the same temp as the master thermocouple. The thermocouples are all set so I just need to figure out this SSR.
