Electrical cooking equipmentManufacturers of electrical cooking equipment such as high-speed ovens, griddles, fryers, steamers, and toasters need to ensure food quality and safety, improved production processes, and a long operational lifetime of the equipment.
For proper temperature control, the heating elements are switched on and off or modulated continuously, resulting in a high number of switching cycles per day. Hockey-puck style solid state relays are very popular in these applications since they offer a cost-effective solution that results in a longer oven life as they have no moving contacts.
Coffee machinesCommercial coffee machines are subject to frequent switching on of some electrical parts such as heaters, coffee grinders and water pumps. Frequent switching significantly shortens the lifetime of electromechanical devices. By comparison, solid state relays have no moving contacts and are therefore ideal solutions for this application.
Another critical part of the coffee machine process is the water level monitoring. Proper level detection can prevent failure of the electrical heater in the steam tank.
