Pickering Electronics Ltd’s new Series 131 single-in-line (SIL) reed relays deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V, switching up to 1000V, on a footprint of just 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm. They are designed for cable testers, mixed-signal /semiconductor testers, backplane testers, high voltage instrumentation, in-circuit test equipment or other applications where high voltage capability is required.
The new range of very small Single-In-Line reed relays is intended for voltages very much higher than standard small SIL relays. The vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches have a superb low-level performance also, which makes them an ideal choice where a wide range of signals is involved.
The relays are offered in a choice of 3, 5 or 12 Volt coils, with optional diode with minimum 1500V stand-off
The range is based on the long-established Series 113 style of plastic package with an internal mu-metal magnetic screen which allows high packing density and are made using Pickering’s SoftCentre construction.
Pickering is offering working samples to allow engineers to test and evaluate these miniature reed relays free of charge now.
