Advantages of static switches

Static switches are now replacing mechanical and electromechanical switches  both because of several advantages are listed below :
  • A static switch has no moving parts, therefore, maintenance cost  is very low
  • A static switch has a long operational life
  • A static switch has no bouncing at the time of when is turning on
  • On time of a static switch is of the order microseconds, it has therefore very high switching speed
  • Inbuilt AC overvoltage protection
  • High-performance AC line quality monitoring
