    Good morning everyone.
    I would like to experiment with SSR Boards. I was just wondering if anybody had any information on specific experiments I could do to learn more. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Just to be sure. By SSR you mean Solid State Relay board?

    If by SSR boards you mean the I/O racks by Opto22, Grayhill etc, they are plentiful and cheap on ebay, in fact I have a raft of them surplus.
    The have quite a few forms of interfacing and voltage types, terminal strip, IDC header etc and also various qty/board.
    What specific info do you need?

    What did you want to know specifically?
    The Opto22 site usually give the internal electronics details for the modular type units.
    There are quite a few Input and output configurations and requirements.

    Not really something you "experiment" with.. Just give it a control signal and it switches a load on/off..
    As Max stated you just need to match the input/output specifications to what you are working with and away you go..

    I took it maybe the OP wanted to try various driving interface methods?
    Also Opto22 give out engineering info for those wishing to develop their own boards to take the modules, I have built a few this way for some custom designs.
