Decent SSR in the UK

Postby AFewTooMany » Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:08

After 20 odd brews my very cheap Chinese knock off ssr seems to be dead, so in the market for a new one. Anybody have a recommended supplier based in the UK. Currently controlling a 10 amp element but plan to increase to 3kw and would rather oversize the electrics.

Whichever one you get oversize it as the max load takes a tumble as the temp rises.

Using a heat sink with compound is key.

I have selected Crydom ones (Schneider electric). They should prove super reliable.
