Electronics Reed relay

PICKERING ELECTRONICS Series 100 HC high power SIL/SIP reed relay is rated for 1A switching at up to 40W and up to 3A continuous carry current. Featuring high quality instrumentation-grade switches with sputtered ruthenium contacts, devices are suitable for low level or ‘dry’ switching applications. Devices provide more than double the coil resistance of other similar products and the continuous carry current specification of 3 Amps can be increased in pulsed current applications. Product’s higher coil resistance also results in reduced heating giving it a thermal EMF performance less than 10μV.
