high voltage 119 reed relay

Clacton-on-Sea, England. Pickering Electronics announced it will be showcasing its latest high-voltage reed relays at the Teradyne Users Group vendor fair on May 2, 2017, in San Francisco. Pickering Electronics said it has expanded its high-voltage single-in-line (SIL/SIP) reed relay range to include three new series that all offer higher packing density: the Series 67

Bad weld with magnifier relay switch

Reed Relays generally have a higher Carry Current rating than their ‘hot’ Switching Current rating. It is usually during ‘hot’ switching where contact damage occurs due to the resulting arc across the contacts as they open or close. A severe current overload will quickly melt the contact area causing the two surfaces to fuse together

Pickering Series 115 2 Form A,

Pickering Electronics will be showcasing its latest high density range, including the addition of two pole reed relays to their established Series 115, at Semicon Korea on 8 – 10, February 2017 on stand 2811. The newly released Series 115, 2 Form A relays can switch up to 15 Watts, 1 Amp and require a

High Density Pickering Sample PCB

Pickering Electronics, a leading provider of Reed Relays, will be showcasing its latest high density range at the International Test Conference on booth 216, 15 – 17 November 2016. The Pickering Series 115, Series 116 and Series 117 are three ranges of small Single Pole (1 Form A) reed relays ideal for the construction of

If used correctly, a reed relay is a superbly reliable device. The switch contacts are hermetically sealed, so they don’t suffer from oxidization or contamination in the same way as an open electromechanical relay. In reality, relays are often considered slightly mundane and little thought is given to them, which sometimes leaves them vulnerable. This

Pickering Electronics, a leading provider of Reed Relays, will be showcasing its latest high density range at electronica on 8 – 11, November 2016 in booth B1.550. The Pickering Series 115, Series 116 and Series 117 are three ranges of small Single Pole (1 Form A) reed relays ideal for the construction of high density

Philip Stoten interviews Graham Dale, Technical Director of Pickering Electronics on their booth at SemiconWest 2016. The interview focuses on Pickering’s new high voltage Reed Relay ranges including the Series 119 relays for up to 3kV and Series 67/68 for up 10kV. These new relays help to maximize packing density of test equipment, with the

Pickering Electronics’ newly released Series 67 and 68 reed-relay range are available for up to 10-kV stand-off, 7.5-kV switching, with an option of either PCB or flying-lead switch connections. Similar in specification to the long established Pickering Series 60/65, these new relays are manufactured in a single-in-line (SIL) format using former-less coils, which dispense with

Pickering Electronics have expanded their high voltage Single-in-line (SIL) Reed Relay range to include three new series, that all offer higher packing density. The Series 67 and 68 dry Reed Relay range for up to 10kV, and the Series 119 Micro-SIL range for up to 3kV, will all be showcased this January at Semicon Korea

Reed Switch Explained

What is a Reed Relay?

Reed relays contain a reed switch, a coil for creating a magnetic field, an optional diode for handling back EMF from the coil, and an encapsulating package with connection terminals. In many ways, a reed relay, if used correctly, is a near perfect device with a low-resistance metallic switch path and inherent isolation between the

Bei Pickering Electronics dreht sich alles um Reed-Relais, die eine Alternative zu HL-, MEMS- und elektromechanischen Relais sind. Ein Reed-Relais bietet seinem Anwender, wenn es korrekt eingesetzt wird, höchste Zuverlässigkeit bei langer Lebensdauer. Auf dem Markt befinden sich zwar alternative Lösungen in anderen Technologien auf Basis von Halbleitern, MEMS und Elektromechanik, die einfache Einsetzbarkeit und

Seven questions about Reed Relays
