Derating Factor

There are two ways to use the derating factor:
1) The rated current value of the solid state relay can be selected according to the derating factor of different environments and different load types. The rated current of the SSR relay is equal to the continuous current value of the load divided by the derating factor.
2) If the solid-state relay has been selected and the load type or environment changes, the load current should be adjusted based on the load curve and the derating factor in certain environment. The adjusted current multiplied by the derating factor must be lower than the rated value of the solid state relay.
