Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has signed a distributor partnership agreement with Wiselink, covering Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
Wiselink places strong emphasis on delivering the best to its customers. The company acts as a supply channel partner for over 35 suppliers and more than 2,500 OEM and CEM customers in various industries. Comments Pickering CEO Keith Moore: “Wiselink is a proactive partner for us in this important region, dedicated to excellence and customer satisfaction.”
Pickering is known for its innovation in reed relays which use instrumentation-grade reed switches with vacuum-sputtered ruthenium plating to ensure stable, long life up to 5×109 operations. Formerless coil construction and SoftCenter™ technology also help to increase reliability and robustness, while the use of Mu-metal magnetic screening (either external or internal), enables ultra-high PCB side-by-side packing densities with minimal magnetic interaction, saving significant cost and space. Also, Pickering’s reed relays are 100% tested for all operating parameters including dynamic contact wave-shape analysis with full data scrutiny to maintain consistency.

Booth 10A86, Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center, November 3-5, 2020
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, will exhibit at Electronica South China which runs from the 3-5 November at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.
Pickering will take this opportunity to show its ranges of miniature, high voltage reed relays, including Series 119, Series 104 and new Series 131 devices. Housed in the mini-SIL/SIP package, Series 131 reed relays deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V and are now the smallest device of their type on the market. Featuring a choice of 3, 5 or 12 volt coils, with optional internal diode, Series 131 reed relays are available in the 1 Form A (energize to make) SPST N.O. configuration, and can switch up to 0.7 amps, 10 watts. Devices are ideal for cable testers, mixed signal/semiconductor testers, backplane testers, high voltage instrumentation, in-circuit test equipment or other HV applications.
Series 131 reed relays utilise vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches which have a superb low-level performance, making them an excellent choice where a wide range of signals are involved. Devices are 100% tested for dynamic contact resistance and incorporate an internal mu-metal magnetic screen – another Pickering innovation – to enable high packing density. Pickering’s SoftCenter® construction is employed to protect the reed switch.
Pickering’s Series 119 miniature SIL reed relays deliver a minimum stand-off voltage of 3000V at 10W; Series 104 parts also have the same 3000V rating at 25W.
Pickering Electronics will share booth 10A86 with its sister company, Pickering Interfaces, makers of modular test equipment based on standard platforms including PXI.
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has announced that it has developed a miniature high voltage relay for use in a new test rig, designed by globally-renowned chip maker, ON Semiconductor.
In switching systems for test and measurement applications, reed relays are often the best solution thanks to their small size, high isolation resistance, hermetically sealed contacts, fast operate time and long-life expectancy. When developing a new test rig, ON Semiconductor – a long-standing customer of Pickering – identified the need for a reed relay with a stand-off voltage of at least 400VDC, which was also small enough to meet its demanding high switching density requirements.
The internal clearance constraints required by the uprated specs would not fit within the package dimensions of other miniature relays in Pickering’s broad portfolio. However, in just seven weeks, Pickering was able to send first prototypes of a device housed in the mini-SIP package with a footprint of 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm able to deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V.
Comments Keith Moore, Pickering’s CEO: “Because Pickering has all elements of relay design and manufacture in house we are able to respond quickly and effectively to custom requests such as this. In this instance, as so many previously, a special design leads to a new standard product, and so we now offer Series131 devices – industry’s smallest high voltage reed relays.”
Featuring a choice of 3, 5 or 12 volt coils, with optional internal diode, Series 131 reed relays are available in the 1 Form A (energize to make) SPST N.O. configuration, and can switch up to 0.7 amps, 10 watts. Devices are ideal for cable testers, mixed signal/ semiconductor testers, backplane testers, high voltage instrumentation, in-circuit test equipment and other HV applications.
Pickering Electronics also manufactures various other miniature high voltage SIL/SIP reed relays. Series 119 types deliver a stand-off voltage performance of up to 3kV on a footprint of 15.1 x 3.7mm (1 Form A) and a profile of 6.6mm, while Series 104s offer the same high voltage performance but with a higher switching power of up to 25W and a higher coil resistance of up to 3000Ω in a package measuring 24.1 x 6.3 x 8.2mm (1 Form A).

About Pickering Electronics
Pickering Electronics was formed over 50 years ago to design and manufacture high quality reed relays, intended principally for use in Instrumentation and Test equipment. Today, Pickering’s Single-in-Line (SIL/SIP) range is by far the most developed in the relay industry with devices 25% the size of many competitors. These small SIL/SIP reed relays are sold in high volumes to large ATE and Semiconductor companies throughout the world.
Pickering Electronics is part of the privately-owned Pickering Group; made up of three electronics manufacturers, including Pickering Interfaces who design and manufacture modular signal switching and simulation products, and Pickering Connect who design and manufacture cables and connectors.
