Teledyne's Reed Relays and Reed Switches are a series of switching solutions with long life reliability, upward of 1 billion cycles, using hermetically sealed contacts within glass tube. Reed switches are switches that can be simply operated open or close to send an electrical signal, by applying an external magnetic field. Reed relays are packaged reed switches in multiple types of housing packages: Industry standard Dual-In-Line Package (DIP), Single-In-Line- Package (SIP), Metal Cover Shielded Relays, or Lightweight Plastic Package. Whether the application is AC or DC, high-power switching up to 7500V or low-power, or whether applications with high insulation resistance requirements of up to 3000V, or application with minimal magnetic interference from other surrounding relays or components, Teledyne Relays has a solution. Teledyne's Reed Relays and Reed Switches come in multiple contact forms – 1A, 1B, 1C or 2A with multiple coil voltages or ranges of Amp-Turns and some with integrated diode option.
Applications for Reed Switches and Reed Relays include Automated Test Equipment, Remote Sensing/Measurement, Telecommunications, Security/Access Control, Industrial Control Systems, Dielectric Voltage Testing/Hi-Pot Cable Testing, ESD Sensitivity Testing, Medical Equipment, Power Generation/Conversion, Power Protection Circuits, Motor Controllers & Inductive Load.
