Pickering Series 115 2 Form A,

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 area of only 0.15 x 0.4 inches (4mm x 10mm), an increase of only 50% over the single pole version. These relays are the ideal choice for high density two pole matrices and multiplexers.

Two switch types are available. Both types have sputtered ruthenium contacts for long life and high reliability. Switch type number 1 is better suited for general purpose applications. It has a layer of copper beneath the ruthenium to help dissipate the heat from the contact area. This gives an improved current inrush handling ability. Switch type number 2 should be chosen for low level or ‘cold’ switching applications.

NEW SERIES 67 and 68


New Series 67 and 68 High Voltage Reed Relays for up to 10kV

• PCB Mounting with option of flying lead switch connections
• Robust tungsten plated vacuum switches
• Plastic package with internal mu-metal magnetic screen
• Ideal for cable and transformer test or other high voltage applications

Pickering Electronics are pleased to announce the introduction of the Series 67 and 68 range of high voltage reed relays. Similar in specification to the long established Series 60/65 and 62/63, 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 Series 68 has flying leads for the switch connections which allow the high voltages to be kept away from the printed circuit board (PCB). The Series 67 has PCB connections for all terminals. The unusual package design does present some interesting packing possibilities for high density applications such as multiplexers and matrices in instrumentation and test systems. The relays are suitable for high voltage transformer and cable test and some electro-medical applications such as defibrillators.


New Series 119 Micro-SIL Relays for up to 3kV

• Sputtered Ruthenium vacuum switches
• 1 Form A at 1, 2, or 3kV plus 2 Form A at 1kV
• Plastic package with internal mu-metal magnetic screen
• Ideal for Mixed Signal ATE, Cable Test or other high voltage applications where space is at a premium

Pickering Electronics are pleased to announce the addition of the Series 119 high voltage Micro-SIL relay to our range.

This is the smallest high voltage reed relay currently available and features sputtered ruthenium switches which makes them suitable for low levels as well as high voltage stand-off. The single pole 1kV version is pin and package compatible with the popular Series 109P so it may be possible to increase the functionality of some existing designs.


Dry Form C Reed Relays.

New 109 Changeover Version

• Dry Form C Reed Relays
• Choice of mu-metal package or plastic package with internal mu-metal magnetic screen.

Pickering Electronics are pleased to announce the addition of a dry Form C (changeover) reed relay to their established Series 109.

This increases the scope of the range which already includes 1 Form A, 2 Form A, 1 Form B and coaxial types in either mu-metal packages or plastic packages with internal mu-metal magnetic screens.
