'[EE]: Packaged Solid State Relay'

a slight twist: how about one of those units that offer remote control of a mains socket with an IR
transmitter? you should be able to hack the transmitter without loosing the approvals of the
switching unit... not great but better than a kick in the teeth.

neat idea.  Then, just put the transmitter in the same box as the receiver
and make it one unit.  Or even put a IRLED on my board and emulate the
transmitter.

How about an X10 appliance control module.  They also make the interface
module (transmitter/receiver) that communicates serially and interfaces to
the power lines.  However, the original request was for a module controlled
by a 2-wire low voltage interface.

I get "phantom" X10 on/off's occasionally with my lights so I don't think
it'd be something you'd want to control anything critical.  The hardwired
control solution seems like the best deal; although I haven't personally
seen something like that.

or an acoustically driven unit....

Clap on, clap off  ;-)

Hey, how about using "The Clapper".  All you'd have to do is simulate the
clap.
"Clap on <clap, clap> Clap off <clap, clap> Clap on clap off ...  The
Clapper"
Just a thought!

Dal, the phantom on/offs you get with your X10 modules are most likely
caused by a "feature" called local control that is incorporated in the
design. One can easily disable this. The procedure to do so is given on Ido
Bartana's excellent Home Automation Knowledge Base at
http://www.geocities.com/ido_bartana/

Anand.

The $1.99 isn't "manufacturer's suggested retail price", is it?  This looks
more like the product from a company that went out of business and sold its
remaining stock to surplus/closeout dealers for pennies on the dollar...

Which means, unfortunately, that you can't count on it as a generic packaged
solid state relay - just when you get your first order for "a bunch" of the
product USING that relay you'll find that there aren't any more.  OEM
product prices have to be based on consistantly available products and
prices - you can't say "I got some PICs from a guy on piclist for $0.50,
so I can sell this for ..." unless you want to change your prices
significantly for each "production run"...

(incidently, this problem has seriously hurt industries that COULD have used
an embedded PC clone.  There's just WAY too much churn in things like
motherboards, and then the customers complain "you want $1000" for a 300MHz
celeron in a box with SW when I can buy a 700MHz Athlon for $650, just
because your intel motherboard is guaranateed to be produced for at least
two years?"  (For that matter, you get the same problem in simple things
like DRAM.  Try to guess what form factor and technology that's at least
available now will be "commodity" in two years when your product actually
hits the streets! (we, at least, have done consistantly awful here...)))
