Provaglio d’Iseo, 15 December 2021 Gefran introduces GRP-H, the first range of single-phase solid-state relays with IO-Link digital communication protocol on the market. The GRP-H series, an evolution of the GRS-H series which belongs to the innovative GR platform dedicated to SSRs, extends the functions for the control of electrical resistance in industrial heating and integrates even more advanced diagnostics for the early detection of any partial load break.
“The GRP-Hs are the first solid state relays with an architecture based on the open IO-Link standard for sensors and actuators. Furthermore, like the GRS-H, they are characterised by a robust, ultra-compact design and modularity, ensured by current range from 15A to 120A” comments Paolo Buzzi, Gefran's Controllers & Power Controllers Marketing Manager.
The new range is completed by the NFC App (Near Field Communication), available for Android and iOS devices, for a quick set up of the main parameters even in the field. Service calls are thus simplified: the App allows to read the SSR's configuration and sends the file to the service which is able to analyse it and possibly modify it, remotely. The new version is then sent directly to the App for download on the relay, making connection cables and configuration software on a PC superfluous. Also, among the guaranteed advantages is the ability to quickly duplicate the same configuration on different GRP-Hs without errors.
