Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has introduced a new changeover 1 Form C version of its popular Series 67 high voltage PCB relay that saves space and makes design simple.

Explains Kevin Mallett, Technical Specialist at Pickering Electronics: “In applications where high voltage signals need to be routed to alternate points, polarity reversing, capacitor charge or discharge for example, a high voltage Changeover relay (SPDT/Form C) would be the ideal solution. These are often implemented using two Normally Open (SPST/Form A) high voltage relays, by ensuring that one switch is always opened before the second switch is closed.  This requires twice the PCB area and can cause complex driving issues.  Also, if either of the SPST relays sticks then there is risk of unintentionally shorting signals.” Pickering’s new 67-1-C high voltage reed relay guarantees break-before-make operation in a single, compact part.

Rated at up to 5kV stand-off, 2.5kV switching at 100W (max), the new Series 67 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. Devices feature PCB connections to switch and coil. Like many Pickering reed relays, the Series 67 parts benefit from internal EMI screening and SoftCenter™ construction. The fully-encapsulated, single-in-line relays employ tungsten-plated contacts. Optional flying leads are available for high voltage connections.

Adds Mallett: “The new 67-1-C high voltage reed relays provide a ready-made solution that is simple to integrate into a new high voltage design, as well as saving substantial PCB area.”

Interactive datasheets revealed – packed with more information – clear and easy to read

Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has completely revamped the datasheets of its entire range of reed relays, providing more information in a clearer format with interactive links to further useful content.

New information includes additional environmental specs, mechanical characteristics and relay weights, plus RF plots for coaxial relays, showing VSWR, isolation and insertion loss. Instead of being ‘squashed’ onto two pages – a legacy of printed datasheets – the specifications and relay details are more clearly laid out, especially the mechanical drawings.

The new designed-for-digital datasheets include interactive links to relevant technical applications information and content, including a summary document entitled ‘10 key benefits of Pickering Reed Relays’ and a comparison table to similar products from Pickering.

Comments Pickering CEO Keith Moore: “It’s easy to overlook so-called ‘simple’ components such as reed relays, so we decided to make all our experience available to designers as easily as possible, so they make the correct choice.”

About Pickering Electronics

Pickering Electronics was formed over 50 years ago to design and manufacture high quality reed relays, intended principally for use in Instrumentation and Test equipment. Today, Pickering’s Single-in-Line (SIL/SIP) range is by far the most developed in the relay industry with devices 25% the size of many competitors. These small SIL/SIP reed relays are sold in high volumes to large ATE and Semiconductor companies throughout the world. Pickering Electronics is part of the privately-owned Pickering Group; made up of three electronics manufacturers, including Pickering Interfaces who design and manufacture modular signal switching and simulation products, and Pickering Connect who design and manufacture cables and connectors.


Innovative, ultra-reliable reed relay families supported technically and commercially by leading independent UK distributor partner


Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization and high performance for over 50 years, has signed a distribution agreement with Anglia Components, the UK’s leading independent authorised distributor of semiconductors, optoelectronics, interconnect, passive and electromechanical components.

Anglia Components is stocking Pickering’s range of instrumentation-grade relays including popular, innovative ranges such as the ultra-high density 4mm2 ™ family that stack on a 4mm x 4mm footprint and the newly-released Series 131 high voltage mini-SIL / SIP devices which have a minimum stand-off of 1500V.

Comments Pickering CEO Keith Moore: “Anglia is the perfect partner for Pickering and we are developing a very synergistic relationship. Anglia is renowned for exceptional customer service and comprehensive technical support, and possesses a wealth of experience and a thorough understanding of the electronics industry.”

Adds Steve Rawlings, CEO of Anglia Components: “We are delighted to add Pickering’s class-leading reed relay product range to our broad component portfolio. Pickering’s products have a reputation for exceptional performance and high reliability, suiting the needs of our customer base.”

Pickering is known for its innovation in reed relays which use instrumentation-grade reed switches with vacuum-sputtered ruthenium plating to ensure stable, long life up to 5×109 operations. Formerless coil construction and SoftCenter™ technology also help to increase reliability and robustness, while the use of Mu-metal magnetic screening (either external or internal), enables ultra-high PCB side-by-side packing densities with minimal magnetic interaction, saving significant cost and space. Also, Pickering’s reed relays are 100% tested for all operating parameters including dynamic contact wave-shape analysis with full data scrutiny to maintain consistency.
