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

Reed Switch Explained

What is a Reed Relay?

Reed relays contain a reed switch, a coil for creating a magnetic field, an optional diode for handling back EMF from the coil, and an encapsulating package with connection terminals. In many ways, a reed relay, if used correctly, is a near perfect device with a low-resistance metallic switch path and inherent isolation between the

Bei Pickering Electronics dreht sich alles um Reed-Relais, die eine Alternative zu HL-, MEMS- und elektromechanischen Relais sind. Ein Reed-Relais bietet seinem Anwender, wenn es korrekt eingesetzt wird, höchste Zuverlässigkeit bei langer Lebensdauer. Auf dem Markt befinden sich zwar alternative Lösungen in anderen Technologien auf Basis von Halbleitern, MEMS und Elektromechanik, die einfache Einsetzbarkeit und

Seven questions about Reed Relays

The following interview explains what Reed Relays are, their unique features and what needs to be considered when using them within switching solutions. Graham Dale, Technical Director of Reed Relay manufacturer, Pickering Electronics, explains. Why should engineers use Reed Relays in switching applications? Reed Relays remain an attractive solution for switching applications. Having a metallic

Pickering Electronics wird auf der productronica neue Single-Inline Reed-Relais-Familien für Hochspannungsanwendungen präsentieren. Die neuen Reed Relais der Serien 67 und 68 schalten Spannungen bis zu 7,5 kV und erreichen eine Durchbruchspannung bis bis zu 10 kV. Die Kontaktanschlüsse sind wahlweise für Leiterplattenmontage oder freie Kabelanschlüsse konzipiert. Trotz elektrischer Spezifikationen, ähnlich der bewährten Serien 60/65, können

Reed Relays for High Voltage Applications

Innovative packaging design targets high density applications 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. The recently

Reed Relays are often considered a mundane component by Design Engineers and sometimes little thought is given to the finer points of their specifications. It is easy to see why this may be. It is after all, much more interesting to work with microprocessors etc. or to make your software really sing and ignore this

Pickering Electronics adds Form B (energise to break) reed relays to its Series 119 high voltage micro-SIL relay range. 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

Suitable for voltage ratings of up to 3kV, the series 119 range of single-in-line reed relays has been introduced by Pickering Electronics at Semicon West 2015. These devices are claimed to be the industry’s smallest high voltage, single-in-line reed relays available. The relay is intended for voltages considerably higher than standard small SIL relays, such
