Pickering to launch new reed relays at electronica adding to portfolio of over 1000 catalogue devices

09 November 2022

Visit Booth A3.161 at electronica 2022 for the latest high voltage, RF & electrostatically shielded reed relays.

Pickering Electronics, the reed relay company which has pioneered miniaturization & high performance reed relays for over 50 years, will exhibit at electronica, Europe’s largest electronics exhibition, on booth 161 in hall A3, Messe München, Munich, Germany 15-18 November.

The company will launch a new variant of its high voltage Series 104 SIL/SIP reed relay family, with optional electrostatic shielding between the switch and the coil, helping to minimize noise between the coil drive and high voltage circuits. Further parts with electrostatic shielding are planned for launch early in 2023.

Also on display at electronica will be other recently announced products including Series 113RF miniature coax reed relays for RF signal switching up to 3GHz; and high-voltage, long-life Series 67 SIL dry reed relays now rated up to 200W and up to 10 kV stand-off, 7.5 kV switching, suitable for big physics, EV battery testing and medical applications.  

Keith Moore, CEO at Pickering Electronics commented: “When used correctly, a reed relay is a superbly reliable device. The switch contacts are hermetically sealed, so do not suffer from oxidation or contamination that affects electromechanical devices with their open contacts. Pickering is always pushing at the edges of technology to get more performance in a smaller package. Visit us on stand A3.161 at electronica to discuss your needs.

Pickering offers over 1000 standard reed relays and is continuously innovating. The company pioneered magnetic screening to avoid relays stacked in close proximity from affecting close neighbours. The company also invented SoftCenter™ Technology, which is used to alleviate any stress on the reed switch, increasing reliability. And the company has developed some of the smallest devices in the world with its ultra-high density 4mm2 1 amp switching products that stack on a 4mm x 4mm pitch, allowing the highest packing density currently available in the industry.

About Pickering Electronics
Pickering Electronics was formed over 50 years ago to design and manufacture high quality reed relays, intended principally for use in instrumentation and test equipment. Today, Pickering's Single-in-Line (SIL/SIP) range is by far the most developed in the relay industry with devices 25% the size of many competitors. These small SIL/SIP reed relays are sold in high volumes to large ATE and semiconductor companies throughout the world.

The privately-owned Pickering Group comprises three electronics manufacturers: reed relay company Pickering Electronics; Pickering Interfaces, designers and manufacturers of modular signal switching and simulation products; and Pickering Connect, which designs and manufactures cables and connectors.
