These ranges of reed relays are essentially the same as the dry Series 80 and 85 and the mercury wetted Series 88 and 89 but with coil resistances between 2 and 3 times higher.

This feature is particularly useful when using large numbers of relays, to reduce overall current requirements and heating effects, or when the available coil drive power is restricted, for example, in battery operated equipment.

Many special resistances are available, and relays can be designed to customers specific requirements.

These ranges have been manufactured for many years. Most sold today are for service replacements - proving Pickering's long term commitment to our products and to our customers.

  • Free Sample Service - determining which components to design in can be challenging. Fortunately, here at Pickering Electronics, we provide free working samples to help you evaluate our high-quality Reed Relays.
  • Reed Relay Selector Tool - this tool will help you narrow down our large offering to get you the correct reed relay for your application. Once you narrow your selections down you can download a relay datasheet for more information, purchase in stock items or request a quote to find out lead times of made to order (MTO) relays.
  • Concise Tech Guide - this guide will help you to maximise the reliability of your design.
  • Quality Assurance - learn more about the various accreditations and certifications that Pickering holds.
  • Custom Designed Reed Relays - With over a thousand catalog parts there is plenty of choice when choosing the right Reed Relay for your product, but if you cannot find one suitable for your needs Pickering can customize our standard reed relay parts to suit your specific requirements and applications.

All Pickering reed relays feature the highest quality instrumentation grade reed switches making them suitable for the most demanding applications. Internal mu-metal magnetic screens (optional on Series 103) allow very high packing density. Diodes are optional.

The below table will help you narrow down our offering to get you the correct reed relay for your application.
