New families are tailored for demanding applications that require high voltage,
high isolation and enhanced shielding from EMI.
4 New Reed Relay Families for High Reliability Applications
Woodridge, IL – July 13th, 2021 –
Teledyne Relays today announced availability
of four new reed relay product families, all offering extremely long life of up
to 1 billion cycles, ideal for applications where high reliability is essential.
The new product lines complement the already broad array of rugged switching solutions
the company has been supplying for more than 60 years.
Reed relays offer a compact and lightweight solution for switching of AC or DC
signals. Contacts are hermetically sealed inside a glass envelope which protects
them from corrosion. Compared with other mechanical-based relays, reed relays offer
low power consumption, low contact capacitance and faster switching speeds.
The new reed relay product families are optimized for different customer demands:
- Single-in-line (SIL) and Dual-in-line (DIL) packaged parts containing one or
more reed switches and an electromagnet, encapsulated in thermoset plastic and packaged
for easy solderability to a printed circuit board, or inserted into sockets for
- The new HVR series relays are designed for high voltage/high power applications,
and can switch up to 7.5 kV, 1.5 kW.
- For applications where isolation is a priority, the HIR series offers up to
3 kV isolation between coil and contacts.
- MCR series relays are designed with a focus on metal shielding. Options include
shielding to protect contacts from external interference from other nearby relays
and components, or to isolate contacts from electrostatic interference coming from
the coil circuit.
"Teledyne's new products provide some of the fastest switching times, highest
vibration resistance and widest operating temperature ranges available, "said Michael
Palakian, Teledyne Relays' Global Director of Sales & Marketing.
Applications for the new products include radar, telecommunications, automated
test equipment, dielectric voltage testing/ Hi-Pot testing, ESD sensitivity testing,
and power protection circuits.
Devices are available for ordering and shipment today from Teledyne Relays or
an authorized distributor.
