Pickering Electronics have announced the addition of Form B (energize to break) reed relays to their new Series 119 high voltage micro-SIL relay range. This is the industry’s smallest high voltage Single-In-Line Reed Relay now available. The relay is intended for voltages considerably higher than standard small SIL relays, ideal for Cable and Backplane Testers, Mixed signal ATE or other applications where High Voltage capability is required.

The vacuumed sputtered ruthenium reed switches have a superb low level performance also, making them an ideal choice where a wide range of signals are involved. The range is based on the long established Series 109P style of plastic package with an internal mu-metal magnetic screen, allowing for high packing density. All Pickering Reed Relays have full magnetic screening which permits side by side operations. The Series 119 is also made using Pickering’s unique SoftCenter® construction.

The new Form B reed relays increase the scope of the range which already includes four versions, all with either 3, 5 or 12 volt operating coils. The 1 Form A, 1kV version has a package and pin configuration compatible with the Pickering’s standard 109P Reed Relay, i.e. 4 pins on 0.15 inches (3.8mm) pitch. These can be stacked side-by-side for maximum packing density. The other types have package lengths and pin configurations appropriate for their voltage ratings.

Pickering Electronics are worldwide manufacturers and distributors of instrumentation grade Reed Relays for ATE, Low thermal EMF, RF switching and other specialist applications. The relays available in Surface Mount, Single-in-Line (SIL), Dual-in-Line (DIL) and many other popular package styles.

The company has seen a large boost in sales in the first two quarters of 2015, which can only be due to their high quality, innovative product offerings, along with impressive technical support services, and custom designed products. Research suggests this growth is set to continue for the balance of 2015.
