Pickering Electronics is offering optional electrostatic shielding for its 10kV stand-off Series 67/68 SIL/SIP reed relay families. Electrostatic screening protects against noise which can occur between the coil drive and high voltage circuits.
Series 67/68 high voltage reed relays are constructed using a lead frame in a single-in-line format and feature former-less coils which means they can be housed in a
smaller package than is usual for this type of device. Measurements are 58.4 by 12.6 by 14.5mm. Series 67 relays feature PCB connections to switch and coil and provide the highest power switch capability in the Pickering portfolio, up to 200W. Series 68 devices have PCB connections to coil and flying leads to the switch which keeps high voltage away from the PCB.
Pickering Electronics’ technical specialist, Kevin Mallett, said: “Pickering continuously looks to improve our product offering. Electrostatic screening adds a new level of protection, ensuring our relay families provide the optimum performance for high voltage applications.”
