Pickering Electronics began producing high-quality relays in 1968 and has continued with this ethos, producing the very best relays for instrumentation, without straying into the manufacture of lower quality commodity devices. This is reflected in the latest two-switch version of the Series 117.
This superb DOUBLE POLE Single-in-Line (SIL) relay requires a minimum of board area – just 0.15 inches x 0.4 inches. The SINGLE POLE version requires only 0.15 x 0.27 inches. These are impressive package sizes when compared to the board area of an industry standard 0.2 x 0.8 inches SINGLE POLE SIL package.
The very small size of these relays often makes it possible to increase the functionality of existing designs without increasing the size of printed circuit boards.
