I wanted to see the LED power on from a farther distance on my MYPIN TA4. So I connected a generic panel mount LED between the SSR pin 3 and SSR pin 4, which should show (to me, at least) when the SSR is sending current to the heat element. It does, but it is on ALL THE TIME. Is this because there is a constant idle current of a few mA across those SSR pins? LEDs are very low drain and I'm thinking it may be enough to light the LED. If so, how could I make this work? Use a higher value resistor? A different type LED? Other problems could be, increasing the resistor might cut down the brightness to the point of blinking in time with the 60 hz AC and therefore still not showing when the element is actually on--? Perhaps I need a bulb of some sort that would not fire with such low current? Or maybe use a relay to control it that needs more than a few mA to engage? But then it might cause the bug-a-boo of cycling too rapidly (short life)? And maybe I can't do this as easily as I thought or even not at all! I guess it's plain to see I'm confused......I just hope you can understand what I'm trying to describe.
