Combine triac with a relay to drive an AC load

<< < (3/3)

Thanks for your suggestions.

I've made up my mind after measuring again the currents involved and I kept my initial design with triac & MOC. The currents involved are 2.5A maximum per heater so the heatsink dimensions are quite reasonable and will fit the oven compartment.

Ah? It's how I've been driving relays for years now :D ... That is interesting; how do you suggest to drive these? With a push-pull stage I suppose?
