Is it possible to connect Solid-state Relays (SSRs) in series?

Yes, it is. SSRs are connected in series mainly to prevent short circuit failures. Each SSR connected in series shares the burden of the surge voltage. The overvoltage is divided among the SSRs, reducing the load on each.


A high operating voltage, however, cannot be applied to the SSRs connected in series. The reason is that the SSRs cannot share the burden of the load voltage due to the difference between the SSRs in operating time and reset time when the load is switched.
