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.

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 which designs and manufactures modular signal switching and simulation products, and Pickering Connect which designs and manufactures cables and connectors.
