Solid state relay, SSR, SCR, and solid state contactor experience.

The management team at POWER-IO™ have over 60 years of combined experience with industrial automation, lighting control, power control, and power switching applications. POWER-IO was formed in order to expand the use of solid state power switching ( ssr, scr, igbt, mosfet, or microprocessor supervised solid state contactor ) technology in automation applications from 0.1 amp up to hundreds of amps. In addition, POWER-IO can offer specific, custom designed products that incorporate power switching as one of the primary elements of the product.

The POWER-IO technology is based upon the following core competencies:

  • scr design knowledge directly at the silicon wafer creation stage
  • use of oversized dies for stronger amperage surge capability
  • ceramic pcb assembly, sometimes called dcb or dbc bonding capability
  • thermal transfer optimization that results in better thermal efficiencies than are typical in the industry
  • design of custom heatsinks that results in the outstanding performance in industrial or commercial environments
  • the trademarked Maximum Surge Survival™ technology -- an advanced method of using 3 protective levels to minimize damage from voltage surges
  • custom interfaces for vac control inputs, vdc control inputs, 4-20mA inputs, Modbus communications, DeviceNet multi-drop communications and more.
  • current limited vdc input requirements of the POWER-IO products mean that they can interface to PLC or PC based control systems.
  • indepth industry experience to resolve technical questions quickly, accurately, and fully

POWER-IO also has a history of designing customized products and completing the testing procedures at UL, CSA, and CE, in a rapid fashion.
