Micro-SIL Magnetically Screened 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 108

Micro SIL Reed Relays
For stacking on 0.15 x 0.8 inches pitch

SoftCenter ® construction
• Highest quality instrumentation grade reed switches
• Encapsulated in a mu-metal can
• Internal mu-metal magnetic screen
• Insulation resistance greater than 10E12 Ohms (1TOhms) for Form A devices
• Dry reed switches available in 1 Form A / SPST (N.O), 2 Form A / DPST (N.O.) and 1 Form C / SPDT (changeover) configurations. 2 Form A types require the same board area as 1 Form A
• 5 Volt coils are 500 ohms and may be driven directly from TTL logic
• 5, 12 and 24 Volt coils are standard, with or without internal diode
• 100% tested for dynamic contact resistance

The Pickering Series 108 is a range of magnetically screened single-in-line reed relays that stack on 0.15 inches (3.8mm) pitch, resulting in a 25 percent saving in board space over 0.2 inch (5.08mm) wide relays.

This means that it is possible to pack 33 percent more relays into the same board area.

Their small size, superb contact resistance stability and ultra high insulation resistance, greater than 10¹² ohms for Form A devices, make these relays a popular choice for high quality instrumentation.
