Rapid Electronics has partnered with Pickering Electronics to become its first official distributor in the UK. Pickering Electronics is a long-established manufacturer of Single-in-Line (SIL/SIP), Dual-in-Line (DIL/DIP), Through-Hole, Surface Mount and custom configuration reed relays in 1 Form A, 2 Form A, 1 Form B, 1 Form C and 2 Form C.
“I am delighted to welcome Pickering to the Rapid relay portfolio”, said Richard Abbott, Product Manager of Electronic Components at Rapid. “Pickering are a company with a wealth of experience in the design and manufacture of quality engineered reed relays, consistently developing relay solutions for changing technologies, applications and PCB requirements.”
Users will have access to a wide variety of Pickering’s product ranges through Rapid Electronics online shop, including Pickering’s latest innovation – the Series 120 4mm2 Reed Relay range.
These Single Pole (1 Form A) relays attracted a lot of interest since being released at Semicon West due to its extremely small size of 4mm x 4mm, whilst still switching up to 1 Amp, 20 Watts.
These are the same reed switches as used in many other long-established Pickering Electronics ranges but are orientated vertically within the package, allowing this very high density.
