High Voltage 3kV Micro-SIL / SIP Reed Relay

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

The Pickering Series 119 is a new range of very small Single-in-Line Reed Relays intended for voltages very much higher than standard small SIL relays. The vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches have a superb low level performance also, which makes them an ideal choice where a wide range of signals are involved.

The range is based on the long established Series 109P style of plastic package with an internal mu-metal magnetic screen which allows high packing density and are made using Pickering’s SoftCenter® construction.

Six versions are available, all with either 3, 5 or 12 volt operating coils. The 1 Form A, 1.5kV version has a package and pin configuration compatible with the standard 109P type, i.e. 4 pins on 0.15 inches (3.8mm) pitch. The other types have package lengthsand pin configurations appropriate for their voltage ratings and theuser will need to arrange suitable clearance distances around the parts.

Form A types can be mounted side by side, but a 1cm space should be left between the Form B type and other relays, as the magnetic field from the internal biasing magnet could slightly affect the sensitivity of the relay alongside.

Application Note:
For stand-off voltages at the upper range of the specification; increases in the contact resistance at low signal levels may be observed. This is a characteristic of the switch. For new applications or for further information please contact our Technical department.
