Single-in-line reed relays rated up to 3kV stand-off voltage
The Series 100HV from Pickering Electronics are small Single-in-Line (SIP/SIL) reed relays rated up to 3kV stand-off voltage and with more than double the coil resistance of previous devices (up to 6800 Ohms).
The varied relay range are ideal for many applications including mixed signal semiconductor testers, high-end cable testers, backplane testers, medical electronics, electric vehicles, solar energy, big physics, in-circuit test equipment and high voltage instrumentation.
Also new are the Series 100HC high power SIL/SIP reed relays. These 40W relays may be used at 3A continuous carry current and even higher levels in pulsed current applications.
The Series 100HC are suitable for low level or ‘dry’ switching applications, and due to the high coil resistance figures of up to 6000 Ohms they are ideal for low power consumption. This higher coil resistance results in reduced heating, giving a thermal EMF performance less than 10μV.
Due to the high-power rating of up to 40 W (at 1 A switching) in many cases these relays may be used as an alternative to mercury wetted reed relays, helping users become RoHS compliant.
