Situated at stand J66, Pickering will be showcasing their latest models at the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition on 12 – 13, February 2014.
Pickering Electronics will be exhibiting 3V reed relays, which are designed for equipment using 3V logic. The series 100 has a coil resistance of 2000Ω, the Series 101 is 1600Ω and the small Series 118 is 1000Ω. This makes them suitable for portable equipment.
Other ranges have retained the same coil resistance figures as the 5V types. Initially 1 Form A versions are available, but 2 Form A and Form C versions will soon be added. The relays are avilable in surface mount, SIL, DIL and many other package styles. The relays incorporate SoftCenter technology.
Pickering Reed relays are encapsulated using a soft inner material to greatly reduce physical stresses on the glass/metal seal of the reed switch capsule. Different materials have different expansion characteristics and the very hard compounds used by most manufacturers can cause stresses that can damage seals or distort the reed switch thereby changing switch blade alignment. This will degrade contact resistance stability and life expectation.
