The new Series 119 is the industry's smallest high voltage SIL Reed Relay for up to 3kV stand-off.

The new Series 119 is the industry's smallest high voltage SIL Reed Relay for up to 3kV stand-off.

Pickering Electronics, the Reed Relay specialists, are set to showcase new Single-in-Line (SIL) Reed Relays for high voltage applications at productronica this November.

The new Series 119 is the industry’s smallest high voltage SIL Reed Relay for up to 3kV stand-off. This new relay is intended for voltages considerably higher than standard small SIL relays, ideal for Cable and Backplane Testers and Mixed signal ATE.

1 Form A, 2 Form A and 1 Form B versions are available with either 3, 5 or 12 volt operating coils. The 1 Form A, 1kV version has 4 pins on 0.15 inches (3.8mm) pitch, the same as the long established Series 109P. These can be stacked side-by-side for maximum packing density (all Pickering SIL Relays have full magnetic screening allowing side by side operation).

Pickering also offer other Single-in-Line High Voltage dry Reed Relays with the Series 104 for use up to 3kV stand-off, 25 Watts switching.

The newly released Series 67 and 68 Reed Relay range are available for up to 10kV stand-off, 7.5kV switching, with an option of either PCB or flying lead switch connections. Similar in specification to the long established Series 60/65, these new relays are manufactured in a SIL format using former-less coils which dispense with the more usual coil supporting bobbin allowing a smaller package than similar rated devices.

The unusual package design does present some interesting packing possibilities for high density applications such as multiplexers and matrices in instrumentation and test systems. 5, 12 and 24 volt coils are available as standard, and other voltages can be supplied to special order, as can variations in the lead length of the Series 68 range. The relays are suitable for high voltage transformer and cable test and some electro-medical applications such as defibrillators.


Pickering Electronics are worldwide manufacturers and distributors of high quality 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.
