Quiet Drive Solid State Relay

Solid state relays are special switches used to turn the heating elements on and off. Solid state relays enhance control performance, extend the life of the heating elements and are expected to last the life of the kiln.

Our Quiet Drive Solid State relays can turn the heating elements on and off up to 60 times per second as opposed to traditional mechanical relays that tend to be limited to about once every 10 seconds. This fast response time translates into tighter and more precise temperature regulation.

Evenheat uses special solid state relays that will only switch the heating elements on and off when the AC voltage is at 0V. It's called "Zero Crossing" and our heating elements love it and they show that love by lasting longer!

Solid state, by its nature, has no moving parts (that's why it's called solid state). No moving parts means nothing to wear out and nothing to replace. Unlike traditional mechanical relays our solid state relays are expected to last the life of the kiln.

Evenheat's Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System is quite simply the best designed, overbuilt and most reliable solid state relay system available.
