Leading reed relay products supported by distributor partner ‘dedicated to excellence and customer satisfaction
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has extended its distributor partnership agreement with Wiselink to covering the Philippines. Wiselink already represents Pickering in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, and has recently opened a new office in Santo Tomas, just outside Manila.
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.

Minimum 1500V stand-off; mini SIL/SIP packaging
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has launched industry’s smallest high voltage relay. Housed in the miniture SIL/SIP package, new Series 131 reed relays have a footprint of just 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm and deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V.
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.
Commented Keith Moore, CEO, Pickering Electronics: “Pickering Series 131 miniature SIL 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. The range is based on our long-established Series 113 style of plastic package that incorporates an internal mu-metal magnetic screen to enable high packing density, and Pickering’s SoftCenter® construction which protects the reed switch.”
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 of companies; 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.
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has introduced a new changeover 1 Form C version of its popular Series 67 high voltage PCB relay that saves space and makes design simple.
Explains Kevin Mallett, Technical Specialist at Pickering Electronics: “In applications where high voltage signals need to be routed to alternate points, polarity reversing, capacitor charge or discharge for example, a high voltage Changeover relay (SPDT/Form C) would be the ideal solution. These are often implemented using two Normally Open (SPST/Form A) high voltage relays, by ensuring that one switch is always opened before the second switch is closed. This requires twice the PCB area and can cause complex driving issues. Also, if either of the SPST relays sticks then there is risk of unintentionally shorting signals.” Pickering’s new 67-1-C high voltage reed relay guarantees break-before-make operation in a single, compact part.
Rated at up to 5kV stand-off, 2.5kV switching at 100W (max), the new Series 67 changeover relays measure just 58.4 x 12.6mm – the same size as a standard Series 67 relay – and are available with 5V, 12V or 24V coils. Devices feature PCB connections to switch and coil. Like many Pickering reed relays, the Series 67 parts benefit from internal EMI screening and SoftCenter™ construction. The fully-encapsulated, single-in-line relays employ tungsten-plated contacts. Optional flying leads are available for high voltage connections.
Adds Mallett: “The new 67-1-C high voltage reed relays provide a ready-made solution that is simple to integrate into a new high voltage design, as well as saving substantial PCB area.”
