Pickering Electronics, the renowned leader in reed relays for over five decades, is set to showcase its latest innovation, the 104 series high voltage single-in-line (SIL) reed relay, at the Electronica China show. The event will take place at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from July 11-13. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit Pickering Electronics’ booth and learn more about their miniaturized and high-performance relays, while also connecting with the company’s technical experts.

The newly unveiled 104HT relay has been specifically designed to operate at temperatures of up to 125°C, making it highly durable under high-temperature conditions. This relay is part of Pickering’s family of miniature high voltage reed relays, packaged in SIL form. It is available in a 1 Form A configuration, with a stand-off voltage of up to 4kV, and offers coil options of 5V, 12V, and 24V. With coil resistance of up to 3000 Ω, the 104HT relay is suitable for various applications, including mixed signal semiconductor testers, high-end cable testers, backplane testers, medical electronics, electric vehicles, solar energy systems, and high voltage instrumentation.

Kevin Mallett, Technical Specialist at Pickering Electronics, expressed his enthusiasm for the new product, stating, “Pickering is continuously developing its product offering, and we are excited to showcase our latest developments, including this high-temperature device, to attendees at the Electronica show in Shanghai.” He further emphasized the exceptional performance of Pickering’s SIL/SIP range, highlighting their compact size, which is one-quarter of the size of many competitors’ relays. These small reed relays have gained significant popularity and are being sold in large volumes to prominent ATE (Automatic Test Equipment) and Semiconductor companies worldwide.

The unveiling of the 104 series high voltage SIL reed relay reinforces Pickering Electronics’ commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions to meet the evolving needs of the industry. With its ability to withstand high temperatures and its versatile applications, this relay is poised to make a significant impact in various sectors, ranging from electronics manufacturing to renewable energy.
