I am currently looking ways to control or siwtch a max 220v 35A load. Simple magnetic relay rated for such load would work, but i am exploring the other alternatives too.
here i stumbled into triacs, in which solid state relays are made of. I stumbled into this ic
and i could not get the grasp on how a small triac such as this one.
is able to switch a high load of 220v 16amps
also am i right that
since 220v and 16 amp is the max rating i would need 4A(Igt) at the gate and 1.3v(Vgt)??
am i looking at the right numbers?
