Pickering Electronics has launched the industry’s smallest high-voltage relay. Housed in the miniture SIL/SIP package, new Series 131 reed relays have a footprint of just 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm and deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V.
Featuring a choice of 3V, 5V or 12V coils, with optional internal diode, Series 131 reed relays are available in the 1 Form A (energise to make) SPST N.O. configuration, and can switch up to 0.7A, 10W. Devices are ideal for cable testers, mixed signal/semiconductor testers, backplane testers, high-voltage instrumentation, in-circuit test equipment or other HV applications.
Pickering Series 131 miniature SIL reed relays utilise vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches which have a superb low level performance, making them an excellent choice where a wide range of signals are involved. The range uses Pickering’s long-established Series 113 style plastic package.
