Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator

08.21.15

Total Cost of Ownership TCO Calculator

The Crydom Total Cost of Ownership Calculator has been revamped and is now a better more user friendly on-line tool. No user registration is needed to start estimating how much a switching solution truly costs.

Considering the variety of costs accrued over the entire life cycle of any equipment, the TCO Calculator helps compare the total cost of ownership of Electromechanical Relays (EMR) vs Solid State Relays (SSR).

In addition to the Calculator, a related White Paper is also available to help you go deeper into the details of how "hidden" costs can add up to the purchasing cost of a switching solution. Check out the Crydom TCO Calculator and discover what extra value using SSRs may bring to your particular application!

Hardware Installed on AC Output Standard S1 Style Panel Mount SSRs

10.22.10

Effective with shipments beginning November 15, 2010, AC output standard S1 style Crydom brand SSRs, that utilize standard screws and clamps for wire termination, will have the hardware installed at the factory on the relays and it will no longer be shipped separately in bags. This will also mean a change in the SSR unit box configuration from one with a separate hardware pocket on the end to a slightly shorter and somewhat higher box.

Crydom will endeavor to minimize mixing configurations (installed verses bagged hardware) within the same model number shipment, but be aware that from the effective date until roughly the end of 2010, some AC output models may continue to be shipped with bagged hardware until our pipeline is fully converted to installed hardware.

Crydom believes that installing the hardware on the SSR will better insure that the end customer always receives SSRs with the correct and complete hardware set. However,if there are customers that prefer the hardware delivered separately, Crydom will gladly support an adapted SSR with hardware shipped in bags, either individual sets or bulk. If you have any questions please contact your local Crydom Sales Representative, Regional Manager or Crydom Technical support.

Short Circuit Current Ratings

01.07.10

Crydom strives to provide the best technology and value in the Solid State Relay Market. Our products and technology are unsurpassed and we support an aggressive continuous improvement program and new product development plan.

In 2006, Crydom pioneered the testing, qualification and rating of Solid State Relays to UL 508 for Short Circuit Current Ratings (SCCR). Crydom products have carried some of the highest and most extensive ratings available for any SSR in the industry with equivalent output ratings.

Please be advised that although our products are of the same design, specification, construction and performance, we have elected to discontinue our support of the UL SCCR ratings. We regret any inconvenience this may present to our valued customers. Please feel free to contact your local Crydom Distributor, Crydom Sales Manager or Crydom Technical Support for additional information or assistance.
