New High Voltage Reed Relay with Optional Electrostatic Screen from Pickering Electronics
Pickering launch new electrostatic screened HV relays with up to 10kV standoff, 7.5kV switching at 50W. The electrostatic shielding between the switch and the coil helps minimize noise between the coil drive and high voltage circuits. Optional flying leads available. The relays are ideal for EV & charge point testing, mining/gas analysis and many other HV applications.

Miniature coaxial reed relay for high-speed RF systems up to 3GHz
Pickering Electronics has launched a miniature coaxial reed relays for high frequency RF systems up to 3GHz.
Using PXI-based fault insertion & sensor simulation in electronic test
Electronic Control Units (ECUs) are present in many applications today, often used in mission- and safety-critical situations that demand not only high reliability but also high operational predictability.
Reed Relay Selection Made Simple
Sometimes finding the right components for your design can be challenging. That is why Pickering has created an easy-to-use Reed Relay Selector Tool for you to effortlessly find the most suitable relays for your modules. Once you’ve found the right relay, you can then download the datasheet, purchase in-stock items online, or request a quote to find out lead times.
The Highest Power Rated Reed Relay Is Available Now
With a stand-off voltage of up to 8 kV, and capable of 6kV switching at 200W, Series 67 relays are constructed using a lead frame in a Single-in-Line (SIP) format and feature former-less coils which results in a smaller package than is usual for this type of device. Suitable for high voltage, electro solar and cable testing. Free samples are available.
New high-voltage, long-life dry reed relays now rated up to 200W
Pickering Electronics has released another high voltage relay within the unique Series 67 range.
Avoid early relay failures now by understanding hot & cold switching
Watch this short video to learn what hot and cold switching is when using reed relays and the effects different switching methods can have on relay life expectancy. The video, created by Pickering Electronics, also talks about capacitive inrush, another common reason for early relay failure that is easily avoidable. Watch the video now to learn more.
Improve performance & safety without taking up more PCB space
The Pickering Series 104 Reed Relay has remained a top seller for many years and now includes a stand-off of up to 4kV, whilst still stacking on a 0.25” pitch. This improved performance increases high voltage protection margin for added safety. The relays are ideal for mixed signal testing and transformer or cable testing. Free working samples available, enquire now.
