3W (Form C), 10W (Form A) 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 113

• Many benefits compared to industry standard relays. Learn more here >.
• High insulation resistance - greater than 10E12 Ohms (1TOhms) for Form A types and greater than 1E10 (10G ohms) for Form C types
• 5 and 12 Volt coils are standard, with or without internal diode
• 1 Form A, 5 volt version has a coil resistance of 500 ohms - drives directly from TTL logic
• 100% tested for dynamic contact resistance

The Pickering Series 113 is a range of magnetically screened single-in-line reed relays that require a board area of only 0.15 inches (3.8mm.) by 0.5 inches (12.7mm.) The Form A (energize to make) versions retain the 10 Watts, 0.5 Amps rating associated with larger relays. The changeover version has a 3 Watts rating.

These relays require less than half the board area of the more usual 0.2 x 0.8 inch devices and have a height of only 0.26 inches (6.6mm.) for the 1 Form A and 1 Form C types and 0.35 inches (8.9 mm.) for the 2 Form A type.

The Series 113 is encapsulated in a plastic package using a very high resistivity resin to achieve an insulation resistance greater than 1012 ohms for the Form A types. The relay has an internal mu-metal screen which totally eliminates the risk of magnetic interaction problems. An unscreened device mounted on this pitch would have an interaction figure of around 40 percent. Relays of this size without magnetic screening would therefore be totally unsuitable for applications where dense packing is required. Pickering Series 113 have a typical interaction figure of 5 percent.

3, 5 and 12 Volt coils are standard, with the option of an internal diode. 1 Form A, 5 Volt coils have a resistance of 500 ohms and may be driven directly from TTL logic
