Reed relays offered in reduced-size SIL packages

Pickering Electronics has announced that its series 119 range, for up to 3kV, offers the industry’s smallest available high voltage Single-In-Line Reed Relay. The switches are intended for voltages very much higher than standard small SIL relays, such as cable testers and mixed signal ATE. Four versions are available, all with either 3, 5 or 12V operating coils.

Pickering says its vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches feature 'superb low level performance', which makes them a suitable choice where a wide range of signals are involved. The range is based on the 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.

The 1 Form A, 1kV version has a package and pin configuration compatible with the standard 109P type, i.e. 4 pins on 3.8mm pitch. These can be stacked side-by-side for maximum packing density. The other types have package lengths and pin configurations appropriate for their voltage ratings.

Pickering says its SIL range is by far the most developed in the relay industry with relays 25% the size of many of those of competitors. Relays are available in SMT, SIL and DIL package styles.
