Graham Dale, Technical Director of Pickering Electronics Limited, describes the unique features of Pickering Reed Relays. Reed Relays remain an attractive solution for switching applications. Having a metallic path, they do not suffer from a relatively high contact resistance and high off-state leakage current usually associated with solid state relays. Often though, they are considered

Pickering Relays

Pickering Electronics are acclaimed Manufacturers of high-quality Reed Relays for Instrumentation and Automatic Test Equipment (ATE). High voltage switching, Low thermal EMF, Direct drive from CMOS, RF switching and other specialist applications. Relays are available in Surface Mount, Single-in-Line (SIL), Dual-in-Line (DIL) and many other popular package styles.

Für alle Reed Relais liegen Spezifikationen bezüglich Strom und Spannung vor, die im Hinblick auf eine lange Lebensdauer eingehalten werden sollten. Es ist auch wichtig, sich vorab darüber Klarheit zu verschaffen, ob der vorgesehene Einsatzweck heißes oder kaltes Schalten vorsieht. Dies kann erheblichen Einfluss auf die Größe und Kosten des vorgesehenen Relais haben. Wenn mit

Pickering Electronics’ Series 117 range of single-in-line (SIL) reed relays are available with either 1 or 2 Form A (energise to make) switches and are intended for very high density applications such as ATE switching matrices or multiplexers. The 1 form A stacks on 0.15 x 0.27 inches (3.8 x 6.6 mm) pitch and the
