Pickering Electronics has launched a new, small high voltage relay. Housed in a miniature SIL/SIP package, the new Series 131 reed relays have a footprint of just 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm, delivering a minimum stand-off of 1500V.

Featuring a choice of 3, 5 or 12 volt coils with an 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.

Keith Moore, CEO, Pickering Electronics, had this to say: “Pickering Series 131 miniature SIL reed relays utilise vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium reed switches, making them an excellent choice where a wide range of signals are involved. The range is based on our long-established Series 113 style of plastic package that incorporates an internal mu-metal magnetic screen to enable high packing density, and Pickering’s SoftCenter construction that protects the reed switch.”
