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 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.
