Pickering Electronics plan to release exciting new Reed Relay, the Series 120, at Semicon West 2017, on booth 5162. The Pickering Series 120 is a range of Single Pole (1 Form A) reed relays that will require a board area of only 4mm x 4mm, making it the highest packing density currently available, taking up

TRIBUTES have been paid to the founder of an electronics firm, who employed hundreds of people and was still involved with the company weeks before he died. John Moore 84, of Frinton, launched Pickering Electronics in 1968 to manufacture high quality components. He grew up in Halifax, West Yorkshire, and always had a strong passion

Clacton-on-Sea, England. Pickering Electronics announced it will be showcasing its latest high-voltage reed relays at the Teradyne Users Group vendor fair on May 2, 2017, in San Francisco. Pickering Electronics said it has expanded its high-voltage single-in-line (SIL/SIP) reed relay range to include three new series that all offer higher packing density: the Series 67

Bad weld with magnifier relay switch

Reed Relays generally have a higher Carry Current rating than their ‘hot’ Switching Current rating. It is usually during ‘hot’ switching where contact damage occurs due to the resulting arc across the contacts as they open or close. A severe current overload will quickly melt the contact area causing the two surfaces to fuse together

Pickering Electronics will be showcasing its latest high density range, including the addition of two pole reed relays to their established Series 115, at Semicon Korea on 8 – 10, February 2017 on stand 2811. The newly released Series 115, 2 Form A relays can switch up to 15 Watts, 1 Amp and require a board

High Density Pickering Sample PCB

Pickering Electronics, a leading provider of Reed Relays, will be showcasing its latest high density range at the International Test Conference on booth 216, 15 – 17 November 2016. The Pickering Series 115, Series 116 and Series 117 are three ranges of small Single Pole (1 Form A) reed relays ideal for the construction of

If used correctly, a reed relay is a superbly reliable device. The switch contacts are hermetically sealed, so they don’t suffer from oxidization or contamination in the same way as an open electromechanical relay. In reality, relays are often considered slightly mundane and little thought is given to them, which sometimes leaves them vulnerable. This

Pickering Electronics, a leading provider of Reed Relays, will be showcasing its latest high density range at electronica on 8 – 11, November 2016 in booth B1.550. The Pickering Series 115, Series 116 and Series 117 are three ranges of small Single Pole (1 Form A) reed relays ideal for the construction of high density

Philip Stoten interviews Graham Dale, Technical Director of Pickering Electronics on their booth at SemiconWest 2016. The interview focuses on Pickering’s new high voltage Reed Relay ranges including the Series 119 relays for up to 3kV and Series 67/68 for up 10kV. These new relays help to maximize packing density of test equipment, with the

Pickering Electronics’ newly released Series 67 and 68 reed-relay range are available for up to 10-kV stand-off, 7.5-kV 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

Pickering Electronics have expanded their high voltage Single-in-line (SIL) Reed Relay range to include three new series, that all offer higher packing density. The Series 67 and 68 dry Reed Relay range for up to 10kV, and the Series 119 Micro-SIL range for up to 3kV, will all be showcased this January at Semicon Korea

The reed relay was invented in 1936 by Bell Telephone Laboratories. Since that time, it has gradually evolved from very large, relatively crude parts to the small, ultra-reliable parts we have today. Production methods and quality systems have improved a great deal over that time, and costs have been radically reduced. Pickering Electronics, an established
