Pickering Electronics has signed a global distribution deal with Premier Farnell. Under the agreement Farnell, Newark and Element14 will stock over 100 different series of Pickering reed relays, ready for immediate delivery to worldwide customers.
Pickering states its reed relays are manufactured to an extremely high standard to ensure long life and optimum performance. Only instrumentation-grade reed switches are used, designed to ensure a stable, long life up to 5×10⁹ operations. All the relays are 100 per cent tested, including repeated 100 per cent thermal cycling from -20 to 85 to -20°C to minimise field failures.
Pickering Electronics’ CEO, Keith Moore, said: “The new distribution agreement with Farnell enables Pickering Electronics to broaden its reach in Europe, North America and Asia in the test, measurement and semiconductor test markets. Customers expect to have components on their desk within hours and this is something Farnell can facilitate.”
