When considering switching solutions, traditional choices for Engineers and Supply Chain Managers are Solid State and Electromechanical technologies. Solid State being a more recent technology is frequently compared to electromechanical in almost every aspect. Engineers, Supply Chain Managers, Marketing and Business Development Managers are often concerned about a variety of costs accruing over the entire life cycle of the equipment where the switching solution is implemented. Eventually, known and hidden costs will show up to negatively impact the profitability of the business if they are not fully accounted for.
Rather than focusing only on initial cost, the Total Cost of Ownership White Paper offers an approach toward considering the life cycle of the switching solution, where life expectancy is one key feature of SSRs and SSCs, especially when compared to EMRs. Furthermore, the document is complemented by a calculator through which the "Cost Effectiveness" of SSRs and SSCs can be expressed quantitatively. Overall, the purpose of these tools is to assist potential users or buyers to reduce cost and enhance performance throughout the life cycle of their preferred switching application.
