USB-6001 - suitable solid state relays

I would like to use a USB 6001 outputs to switch 24V but am not sure what the best solution is in terms of the hardware required - presumably solid state or optocoupler relays as this is for very low power equipment.


I believe the default configuration of the outputs is Active Drive which is 3.3 V with a current limit of 4 mA. I am struggling to find solid state or optocoupler relays within this spec (ideally DIN rail mountable - not PCB components). Is there a different configuration for the outputs on the 6001 that will give more flexibility?

No, there is no other variant of 6001 with better capability since it is one of the cheapest DAQ. Of course, there are other models at a higher price range with better options.
