ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching) | NETIO products: Smart power sockets controlled over LAN and WiFi
ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching) means switching the 110/230VAC output when the immediate voltage is zero.

ZVS is easier to implement and it is a good solution for switching on/off devices such as switching power supplies. ZVS is not suitable for controlling inductive loads (transformers or motors), as it increases the probability of relay damage when such types of loads are frequently switched on/off.

 

110/230V outputs can be switched in these ways

  • Anytime
    The most common method, sufficient for switching purely resistive loads, or when the switching takes place at most a few times per day.
  • ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching)
    Suitable for switching power supplies / computer servers.
  • ZCS (Zero Current Switching)
    Suitable for all types of loads and for switching more than once per day.

 

In the context of NETIO products

  • Legacy products (NETIO 230B) switched their outputs anytime.
    This turned out to be unsuitable for many applications.
  • Most NETIO products support ZCS when switching 230V outputs.
  • Some NETIO products support ZVS when switching 110/230V outputs. For certain load types, such as switching supplies in IT solutions, this method is sufficient.
