Pickering Electronics, a leading provider of Reed Relays solutions, will be showcasing its latest models at the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition on 12 – 13, February 2014 in Stand J66.
Pickering Electronics introduces 3 Volt Reed Relays:
- 3 volt operating coils now available in most ranges
- Ideal for equipment using 3 volt logic
- 1 Form A versions now available
Versions with 3 volt operating coils are now available in most ranges. These are ideal for equipment using 3 volt logic.
The Series 100 has a coil resistance of 2000 ohms, the Series 101 is 1600 Ohms and the small Series 118 is 1000 Ohms making them ideal for portable equipment.
In some other ranges, we have been able to retain the same coil resistance figures as the 5 volt types. Initially, 1 Form A versions are available but 2 Form A and Form C versions will soon be added so if you have a requirement for these, please contact us, we may have them available.
Featuring Pickering SoftCenter™ Technology
Pickering Electronics are manufacturers of high quality Reed Relays for Instrumentation and Automatic Test Equipment (ATE), High voltage switching, Low thermal EMF, Direct drive from CMOS, RF switching and other specialist applications. Pickering Relays are available in Surface Mount, Single-in-Line (SIL), Dual-in-Line (DIL) and many other popular package styles And like our existing relays they incorporate SoftCenter® technology.
More about SoftCenter®
Pickering Reed relays are encapsulated using a soft inner material to greatly reduce physical stresses on the glass/metal seal of the reed switch capsule. Different materials have different expansion characteristics and the very hard compounds used by most manufacturers can cause stresses that can damage seals or distort the reed switch thereby changing switch blade alignment. This will degrade contact resistance stability and life expectation.
Pickering Electronics - the Reed RelayMate
An in-depth new publication which looks in details at Reed Relays. It describes how reed relays are constructed, what types they are, how they work. Also our relay experts describe what parameters can affect their operation, how clients can chose the correct relay and furthermore a comparison with other relay technologies and how to drive and place reed relay coils.
The Reed RelayMate is available free of charge from the page of Pickering Electronics’ website www.pickeringrelay.com and is available as printed copy of PDF format. We also have copies for you available at Farnborough.
Pickering Electronics was formed in January 1968, with the aim to design and manufacture high quality reed relays, intended principally for use in Instrumentation and Test equipment. Today, Pickering's Single-in-Line (SIL) range is by far the most developed in the relay industry with relays 25% the size of many of their competitors. The small SIL relays are sold in high volumes to large ATE companies throughout the world. Pickering Electronics is an ISO 9001 certified company. www.pickeringrelay.com
