Prospective visitors were disappointed to learn that Electronica South China has been cancelled for the second time this year, the exhibition that is held in Shenzhen annually was originally planned to go ahead in October, then postponed to December 2021 however, the organizers announced last week that the exhibition will now be postponed until October 2022 due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, had planned to showcase their impressive range of high voltage reed relays, including the newly released Series 100HV.
Pickering’s comprehensive range of high-performance reed relays for high voltage applications can stand-off from 1kVto 15kV and enable switching from 500V to 12.5kV at up to 50W. The high voltage reed relays are ideal for many applications including mixed signal semiconductor testers, high-end cable testers, backplane testers, medical electronics, electric vehicles, solar energy, big physics, in-circuit test equipment and high voltage instrumentation.
The new Series 100HV high voltage SIL/SIP reed relays rated for up to 3kV stand-off voltage feature more than double the coil resistance of previous devices. This suits 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.
The company also planned to exhibit the changeover 1 Form C version of Pickering’s popular Series 67 high voltage PCB relay, that saves space and makes design simple. Rated at up to 5kV stand-off, 2.5kV switching at 100W (max), the 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.
Pickering now plan to exhibit at the show in October 2022, but in the meantime more information on the range of high voltage reed relays is available here.
