Pickering Electronics, a long-established Reed Relay manufacturer, will showcase the world’s highest density Reed Relay at Productronica 2017, on booth A1.452. 

Pickering’s new Series 120 4mm2 TM reed relay range (Figure 1) has attracted a lot of interest since being released in July at Semicon West in San Francisco. The relays require a board area of only 4mm x 4mm, making it the highest packing density currently available, taking up the smallest board area ever. Series 120 Reed Relay 4mm TM

Two switch types will be available, a general purpose sputtered ruthenium switch rated at 15 Watts, 1 Amp (3 Volt version) or 20 Watts, 1 Amp (5 & 12 Volt versions) and a low level sputtered ruthenium switch rated at 10 Watts, 0.5 Amps.

These are the same reed switches as used in many other long-established Pickering Electronics ranges but are orientated vertically within the package, allowing this very high density. The small size of the package does not allow an internal diode. Back EMF suppression diodes are included in many relay drivers but if they are not, and depending on your drive methods, these may have to be provided externally.

The relays feature an internal mu-metal magnetic screen. Mu-metal has the advantage of a high permeability and low magnetic remanence and eliminates problems that would otherwise occur due to magnetic interaction. Relays of this small size without magnetic screening would be totally unsuitable for applications where dense packing is required.

Pickering Reed Relay distributor Rapid Electronics

Rapid Electronics, a leading UK electronics distributor, has partnered with Pickering Electronics to become their first official distributor in the UK.

“I am delighted to welcome Pickering to the Rapid relay portfolio”, said Richard Abbott, Product Manager of Electronic Components at Rapid. “Pickering are a company with a wealth of experience in the design and manufacture of quality engineered reed relays, consistently developing relay solutions for changing technologies, applications and PCB requirements.”

Pickering Electronics is a long-established manufacturer of Single-in-Line (SIL/SIP), Dual-in-Line (DIL/DIP), Through-Hole, Surface Mount and custom configuration reed relays in 1 Form A, 2 Form A, 1 Form B, 1 Form C and 2 Form C.

Users will have access to a wide variety of Pickering’s product ranges through Rapid Electronics online shop, including Pickering’s latest innovation – the Series 120 4mm2 TM Reed Relay range.

These Single Pole (1 Form A) relays attracted a lot of interest since being released at Semicon West due to its extremely small size of 4mm x 4mm, whilst still switching up to 1 Amp, 20 Watts.

These are the same reed switches as used in many other long-established Pickering Electronics ranges but are orientated vertically within the package, allowing this very high density.

Reed relay shrinks size, boosts density

Series 120 Reed Relay 4mm TM

Pickering Electronics has unveiled a new reed relay that requires a board area of mere 4 x 4 mm. The company claims that its Series 120 relays occupy the smallest board area while boasting the highest packing density currently available.

The new reed relays are available in two switch types: a general-purpose sputtered ruthenium switch rated for up to 20 W and 1 A and a low-level sputtered ruthenium switch rated at 10 W and 0.5 A.

These reed switches are oriented vertically within the package, and that significantly improves the packing density. But the small package size doesn’t allow an internal diode, either. Here, it’s worth mentioning that back EMF suppression diodes are included in many relay drivers. However, if they are taken out, depending on the drive method, diodes can be provided externally.

The Series 120 relays feature an internal mu-metal magnetic screen. Mu-metal provides high permeability and low magnetic remanence and eliminates problems that would otherwise occur due to magnetic interaction. The relays without magnetic screening are not suitable for applications in which dense packing is required.

The connectors — available in SMD and through-hole formats — allow these relays to be stacked in either a row or in a matrix on a 4-mm pitch.
