Pickering Electronics introduced its Series 131 miniature high voltage reed relays featuring a footprint of just 12.5mm x 3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm. They deliver a minimum stand-off of 1500V and switching up to 1000V.
The vacuumed, sputtered ruthenium single-in-line reed switches have a superb low-level performance also, making them them an option where a wide range of signals are involved.
These SPST N.O. relays are suitable 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 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 SoftCenter® construction that protects the reed switch.
