The industry’s smallest high voltage SIL Form B reed relays

Pickering Electronics has announced the addition of the industry’s smallest high voltage SIL Form B (energise to break) reed relays to its Series 119 high voltage micro-SIL relay range. The relay is intended for voltages considerably higher than standard SIL relays, suitable for cable and backplane testers, mixed signal ATE or other applications where high voltage capability is required.

The vacuumed sputtered ruthenium reed switches have a superb low level performance also, making them a suitable choice where a wide range of signals are involved. The range is based on the long established Series 109P style of plastic package with an internal mu-metal magnetic screen, allowing for high packing density. All Pickering Reed Relays have full magnetic screening which permits side by side operations. The Series 119 is also made using Pickering’s unique SoftCenter construction, detailed below:

The Form B reed relays increase the scope of the range which already includes four versions, all with either 3, 5 or 12V operating coils. The 1 Form A, 1kV version has a package and pin configuration compatible with the Pickering’s standard 109P Reed Relay, 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 Electronics are worldwide manufacturers and distributors of instrumentation grade Reed Relays for ATE, Low thermal EMF, RF switching and other specialist applications. The relays available in Surface Mount, Single-in-Line (SIL), Dual-in-Line (DIL) and many other popular package styles.
