Job Title: Technical Sales Engineer
Job Type: Full-time, Permanent
Start date: ASAP
Pickering Electronics is a world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of Reed Relays, with its headquarters based in Clacton on Sea, Essex.
We are currently seeking a full time Technical Sales Engineer to join our busy and expanding Engineering Team.
Reporting to the board you will be the clear point of contact for all technical enquires from customers and procurement/application Engineers. Your primary objective will be to support the sales and engineering department on all matters relating to the function of existing or proposed products; so that the company’s product range can be competitively marketed to maximum commercial advantage.
Regular international travel will be required with this role.
Pickering Electronics has extended its 4mm product family with the Series 122 reed relay.
Used in high speed test systems, occupying a PCB footprint of 4x4mm, Pickering claims the relay provides the highest packing density currently available. The relay measures 12.5m
m in height and can operate from 3V or 5V. Its contacts are rated with a switching current of 0.5A at 10W.
Featuring instrumentation-grade sputtered-ruthenium switches, the 1 form A (SPST) normally open energize-to-make devices have plastic packages with internal mu-metal magnetic screening to avoid cross-interference and ‘false’ switching in densely packed applications.
Devices are tested for dynamic contact resistance and have an insulation resistance of greater than 10¹²Ω.
The relays may be socketed using SMD or through-hole sockets. However, care must be taken to mitigate the risk of affecting contact resistance integrity.
The Series 122 reed relay is suitable for test systems such as A.T.E. switching matrices or multiplexers, Pickering says.
Keith Moore, CEO at Pickering Electronics says “We launched our first 4mm2TM product, the Series 120, with a switching rating of up to 1A at 20W and a height of 15.5mm. Last year, the Series 124 reduced this profile to 9.5mm but with a slightly lower rating of 0.5A at 5W. We can now provide customers with the new Series 122 device which fills the gap in our product range and offers the flexibility required to design in a product that exactly matches their requirements.”
Pickering will be showing the Series 122 relays at Productronica in Munich, 12-15 November.
Products including world’s smallest and high voltage reed relays now available for immediate shipment from U.S. distributor
Pickering, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has signed a distribution deal with Testco, the specialist distributor of passive, electromechanical and interconnect components based in Sunnyvale, CA. This means that Pickering’s large range of reed relays for A.T.E. switching and semiconductor test is now available and supported by the distributor across North America.
Included in the inventory of Pickering’s reed relays that are held by Testco for immediate shipment are the 4mm2TM product family which feature industry’s smallest footprint – 4mm x 4mm. Within the family, Series 120 devices have a switching rating of up to 1A at 20W and a height of 15.5mm, Series 122 relays measure 12.5mm in height and are rated with a switching current of 0.5A at 10W, and Series 124 products which feature industry’s lowest profile – 9.5mm – and a rating of 0.5A at 5W. Pickering’s range of high voltage reed relays will also be offered from stock.
Commented Keith Moore, CEO, The Pickering Group: “We have been impressed by Testco’s expertise and their ability to offer creative supply chain solutions to meet the requirements of customers, including flexible blanket orders, bonded inventory, consolidated shipments, and annual pricing programs. We are delighted to add Testco to our network.”
Added Jeff Meyer, President at Testco: “Pickering is known as a leader in relay technology having regularly introduced product innovations such as screening to ensure relays can be closely packed together, and ongoing miniaturization programs. We are sure that our customers will benefit from the advantages that Pickering’s products offer and look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
July 9 – 11, 2019, Booth 5656 Moscone Center, San Francisco
Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, will debut a new 10W member of its successful 4mm2TM product family at the upcoming Semicon West exhibition. Like other reed relays in the family, new Series 122 devices occupy a PCB footprint of only 4mm x 4mm, facilitating the highest packing density currently available. Series 122 relays measure 12.5mm in height and are rated with a switching current of 0.5A at 10W. 3V and 5V coils are available.
Fast operate and release times, typically 150 μs or less, make Series 122 relays ideal for high speed test systems such as A.T.E. switching matrices or multiplexers. The 1 Form A (SPST) Normally Open (NO) Energize-to-make devices feature highest-quality, instrumentation-grade sputtered-ruthenium switches and plastic packages with internal mu-metal magnetic screening to avoid the risk of magnetic interaction issues in densely-packed applications. Devices have an insulation resistance of greater than 1012Ω and are 100%-tested for dynamic contact resistance to guarantee performance.
Other members of the family include the Series 120 which has a switching rating of up to 1A at 20W and a height of 15.5mm and the Series 124 which has a lower 9.5mm profile and a slightly lower rating of 0.5A at 5W.
Pickering Electronics will be sharing Booth 5656 with its sister company, Pickering Interfaces which will showcase its latest high-density PXI and Ethernet LXI Switching & Simulation Solutions along with their Signal Routing Software.
