Help with transistor for switching MOSFET

Question asked by pcbsmoke on Apr 2, 2016

Is it possible to use a transistor as a way to signal a MOSFET in a circuit for switching a device on and off? I wish to soldering iron with a PID temperature controller.

 

I have attached a diagram / partial schematic.

 

I want to know is there a way to use a transistor in the circuit to do the switching? When the SSR signal is "on" (Vin ~8v) it needs to open the connection between A and B and switch the load on. When the SSR signal is "off" (V0) it needs to close the connection between A and B and switch the load off.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.
