We are delighted to announce that Pickering Electronics has been selected as a finalist at the Electronics Industry Awards 2020 in the Manufacturer of the Year category.
The Electronics Industry Awards is a premier event that recognises outstanding people, products and business practices from across the electronics sector. The shortlist was created using a combination of online votes and an expert panel of judges.
Pickering Electronics would like to thank all those that voted for us and congratulate all other finalists, including our sister company; Pickering Interfaces, who are finalists in the test, measurement & inspection product of the year category.
Pickering Electronics has been the market leader in the production of high quality, high performance Reed Relays for over 50 years and is proud to be recognised within the industry. The ceremony will take place on Thursday 24th September 2020.

Reed relays have never been known for high power switching, in fact, high carry currents can seriously affect switch life and reliability due to the very use of reed switches. On the other hand, reed switches allow for very efficient spatial distribution, taking up minuscule amounts of surface area on your board.
One of the first impressions we’ve had upon opening the samples that Pickering sent us is the extremely neat and tidy packing. Each set of relays came in its own tiny plastic box with clear windows, complete with a protective layer of sponge and a satisfying “click” when opened and closed. Nothing important for the tests, but a nice touch nevertheless. Pickering has also thrown in a really nice set of literature, including an 80-page product catalogue, along with a handy relay look-up chart and a brief relay theory overview booklet.
