The Reed Relay Manufacturers

A wide choice of reed relay ranges for high-end Instrumentation, Automatic Test Equipment and Semiconductor Test

Pickering Reed Relays are offered in single-in-line (SIP), dual-in-line (DIP) through-hole and surface mount (SMD) packages. Most importantly, using only the highest quality instrumentation grade dry and mercury wetted reed switches.

Our reed relays are available in various contact configurations. Including 1 Form A (SPST N.O.), 2 Form A (DPST N.O.), 1 Form B (SPST N.C.), 1 Form C (SPDT changeover), 2 Form C (DPDT changeover) and 3 Form A (3PST N.O).

High Voltage Reed Relays

1kV to 15kV stand-off. 500V to 12.5kV switching high voltage relays. PCB pins, chassis or PCB mounting & flying leads.

Browse: High Voltage 

High Density Reed Relays 

High performance, small size reed relays. Switch up to 1 Amp whilst taking up to just a quarter of the PCB space compared to industry standard sized reed relays. These miniature relays feature magnetic shielding allowing close stacking, above all, without magnetic interaction effects.

Browse: High Packing Density 

Coaxial RF Reed Relay

50 Ohms and 75 Ohms reed relays for radio frequency (RF) and high-speed digital switching. Therefore, appropriate for up to 3GHz.

Browse: Coaxial RF

General Purpose
Reed Relays

Pickering’s range of SIL / SIP general instrumentation reed relays available with 3V, 5V, 12V and 24V coils.

Browse: General Purpose 

Low Coil Current
Reed Relays 

Pickering’s Series 101 reed relay range can direct drive from 74HC or HCT logic. Most importantly, without the need of additional drivers.

Browse: Direct Drive CMOS 

Portable Equipment
Reed Relays

Very sensitive reed relays with high coil resistance. Relays useful for applications where conservation of current is required. As a result, these are useful for battery powered equipment.

High Power Reed Relays

Pickering’s Series 114 switch up to 40 Watts, 1 Amp, carrying 2 Amps. Due to this high rating these relays can, in some cases, be used as a substitute to mercury wetted reed relays.

Browse: High Power 

Low Capacitance Reed Relays

SIP relays ideal for wide bandwidth A.T.E. switching matrices, attenuator switching or any other applications. Therefore, ideal where exceptionally low levels of inter-terminal capacitances are necessary.

Browse: Low Capacitance 

Low thermal EMF 

Reed relays with extremely low levels of thermal EMF, approximately 1 microvolt or less. For this reason, it makes these relays appropriate for data acquisition or thermocouple switching applications.

Browse: Low Thermal EMF 

Legacy / Classic Reed Relays
