Low Coil Power/Low Thermal EMF Reed Relays

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.

Pickering Series 100

Low Thermal EMF Relays
Direct drive from CMOS

SoftCenter ® construction
• Highest quality instrumentation grade switches
• Thermal EMF about 1 microvolt or less
• Low power consumption, ideal for portable equipment
• Encapsulated in a plastic package with internal mu-metal magnetic screen
• Wide range of switch configurations - 1 Form A,1 Form B, 2 Form A, 1 Form C
• Two pole relay requires the same board area as the single pole type
• Dry and mercury wetted switches are available with the same pin configuration and footprint
• Insulation resistance greater than 10E12 Ohms (1TOhms) for dry Form A devices
• 5, 12 and 24 volt coils are standard, with or without internal diode
• 100% tested for dynamic contact resistance

The Pickering Series 100 is a complete range of Single-in- Line (SIL) reed relays primarily intended for direct drive from 4000B CMOS or similar low current sources. They feature a very low level of thermal EMF.
