Versions of the reed relays are available that support 3V coil drives for systems working at low supply voltages. The two pole version has a footprint of just 10.16×3.81mm, while the single pole device occupies just 6.86×3.81mm – just 38% and 26% respectively of the board area required for industry-standard SIL relays.
The relays are constructed using Pickering Electronics SoftCenter technology with an integral magnetic screen, ensuring that the relays exhibit excellent reliability and avoid magnetic interaction issues when closely packed together. Devices are also priced very competitively, and it is this combination of attributes that suit them so well for use in high volumes in PXI and other switching matrix solutions.
