Solid State Relays for Petrol Pumps
Opto 22 Solid State Relays have been supplied to the manufactures of Petrol Pumps in Australia for many years. In 1974, Opto 22 introduced a complete line of optically isolated solid-state relays (SSRs) for the Component OEM market. The manufacturing technique, developed by Opto 22, used liquid epoxy fill and greatly increased the reliability and reduced the cost of volume production. Opto 22 quickly became, and remains today, the world's leading manufacturer of SSRs.
