High Voltage Reed Relays with interesting packing possibilities to be showcased at Semicon West

Jun 27, 2016

Pickering Electronics' 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 Pickering Series 60/65, these new relays are manufactured in a Single-in-Line (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. See the related image of Pickering Series 67 relays mounted on a 3U PXI 12-way high voltage multiplexer module that illustrates these possibilities.

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, available in Surface Mount, Single-in-Line (SIL), Dual-in-Line (DIL) and many other popular package styles.
