Significantly higher current-carry rating and small size for closer stacking from Pickering Electronics
Pickering Electronics has released yet another high voltage relay within the unique Series 67 range. Now available with the highest power switch in the Pickering portfolio, rated up to an impressive 200W. With a stand-off voltage of up to 8 kV, and capable of 6kV switching with a power rating of 200W, Series 67 relays are constructed using a leadframe in a Single-in-Line (SIL) format and feature former-less coils which results in a smaller package than is usual for this type of device.(more…)
Improved performance, increase in equipment specification, and high voltage isolation protection margin are just some of the benefits of the new Series 104 4kV relays.
Pickering Electronics has increased the stand-off voltage values for its prevalent small-size Series 104 high voltage reed relays for up to 4kV. For the newly introduced versions, this means a 1000VDC stand-off voltage improvement on the previous Series 104 product offering.
Commented Kevin Mallett, Technical Specialist at Pickering Electronics: “The higher stand-off voltage improves the performance of the relay and allows for an increase in the equipment specification.” “It also means an increased high voltage protection margin for extra safety and security,” he added.(more…)
Highest quality switches with sputtered ruthenium contacts suit low level ‘dry’ switching stand-off; mu metal screening to enable close stacking.
Pickering Electronics has launched the Series 100 HC high power SIL/SIP reed relay that is rated for 1A switching at up to 40W and up to 3A continuous carry current. Featuring the highest quality instrumentation-grade switches with sputtered ruthenium contacts, Series 100 HC relays are suitable for low level or ‘dry’ switching applications.
Commented Kevin Mallett Technical Specialist at Pickering Electronics: “The Series 100HC offers over double the coil resistance of other similar products and the continuous carry current specification of 3 Amps can be increased in pulsed current applications.”(more…)
New high voltage SIL/SIP reed relays from Pickering Electronics feature higher coil resistance for low power consumption
Pickering Electronics, announces the Series 100HV high voltage SIL/SIP reed relays rated for up to 3kV stand-off voltage and with more than double the coil resistance of previous devices.
This suits them for applications such as transformer or cable testing or any other automatic test equipment where high voltages are involved but where low coil power consumption is required.(more…)
