Reliability through Design

Our environmentally compliant Reed Relays use Softcenter® technology, therefore minimising internal stresses on the reed switch, resulting in an extended life & contact resistance stability.

Switching Performance

Our formerless coil technology enables the use of higher AT grade switches; delivering more robust and reliable switching over lifetime, higher standoff voltages, tighter operating windows and a greater immunity to stray magnetic fields.

Cost & Size Performance

Leading edge mu-metal magnetically screened reed relays allow ultra-high packing densities, saving significant PCB space resulting in lower costs, whilst eliminating magnetic interaction effects.


Five times smaller than industry standard relays without compromising on switching performance.
