Why do Opto-MOSFET Relays and Solid State Relays have leakage current? - FAQs | Bright Toward Industrial Co., LTD.

Due to the contactless design, it is impossible for Opto-MOSFET Relays and Solid State Relays to operate without current leakage. With reed relays and mechanical relays, two physical reed contacts are separated when the relay is turned off, making it impossible for signals to go through. However, when you turn off an Opto-MOSFET Relay or Solid State Relay, you cut off the LED's current or voltage driving the MOSFET, which leaves space for a tiny amount of current to pass through. Therefore, for customers in the test and measurement industry, where a clean cut-off of signal is required, we recommend Reed Relays over Opto-MOSFET Relays. However, we also offer a series of low leakage current Opto-MOSFET Relays, with leakage current down to 1nA (1 nanoAmp).Below are our most popular Opto-MOSFET Relays with leakage current less than 1nA (1 nano amp)45-pA Series: 60V/200mA 37-pA Series: 60V/550mA 47-pA Series: 80V/1.5A 30-pA Series: 400V/120mA Manufacturer of Opto-MOSFET Solid State Relays, Reed Relays, and RF MEMS Switches.
