Mounting panels provide the final electrical link between your PC and the solid-state relays that control real-world devices. We offer mounting panels sized for 4, 8, 16, or 24 relays, in standard (CY series) or slim-line (WR series) sizes. Regardless of series, each panel reuires an INST 1140 power supply, which is not included.
The advantage of our standard CY series panels is that they accommodate both standard and slim-line SSRs, since both styles have the same pin configurations. The limitaton of the CY-series panels is that they are 30% to 60% larger than the slim-line WR-series panels, so they take up more space. Conversely, the advantage of the WR-series panels is their small size for a given number of relays, and their limitation is that they cannot accommodate standard-size relays.
A secondary, but important consideration for mounting panels is their mounting style. Both our standard and slim-line panels have models that mount on standoffs, and others that mount on DIN rails. Standoff models can be attached to any surface where you can put mounting studs, whereas DIN rails are faster to mount if you already have DIN rails installed and available.
