    Using solid state relay in high load applications

    What are the potential risks in using a solid state relay for a load between 10-20A? I've found HP rated SSR's with a surge current graph that I believes fits the characteristic of the inrush current of an AC or DC motor, but I also read that the peak current of the motor must be half the...
