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.
Pickering’s newly released Series 67 and 68 Reed Relay range present some interesting packing possibilities for high density applications such as multiplexers and matrices in instrumentation and test systems (see dimensions in related image).
These diverse Reed Relays 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/SIP) format using former-less coils which dispense with the more usual coil supporting bobbin, allowing a smaller package than similar rated devices.
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.
