Surface Mount Reed Relays

Surface mount (SMD) reed relays featuring internal mu-metal magnetic screens. Suitable for infa-red or vapour phase reflow soldering.

All Pickering reed relays feature the highest quality instrumentation grade reed switches making them suitable for the most demanding applications.

Pickering Series 200

Surface Mount Reed Relays
Including coaxical types for up to 5GHz

SoftCenter ® construction
• Highest quality instrumentation grade switches
• Encapsulated in plastic package with internal mu-metal screen for side-by-side mounting without magnetic interaction
• Insulation resistance greater than 10E12 Ohms (1TOhms) for Form A devices
• For R.F. or high speed digital applications, 50 or 75 ohms coaxial devices are available in the same small package
• Wide range of switch configurations - 1 Form A, 1 Form B, 2 Form A. 1 Form C
• Dry and mercury wetted switches available
• 5 and 12 Volt coils are standard, with or without internal diode
• 100% tested for dynamic contact resistance

The Series 200 is a complete range of surface mount reed relays.Both dry and mercury wetted switches are available in a wide range of configurations including coaxial types for RF up to 5GHz, or high speed digital switching with a step response time of less than 30ps. Please contact our technical department for supplementary RF data.

The special high temperature plastic package will withstand the temperatures associated with Infra-red or vapour phase reflow soldering processess. A flexible inner encapsulant protects the sensitive glass/metal reed switch seals - this is a very big advantage over the more usual hard moulded package.
