Racal Instruments has introduced its Model 1260-111/A high-voltage/current dry reed relay switch plug-in rated for 1,000,000 operations at full-rated, 60W load.
Racal Instruments has introduced its Model 1260-132, DPST, 1 X 23, two-wire, dry Reed relay multiplexer, that switches up to 1,000V DC/V AC (pk-pk).
The card uses dry reed relays that offer both low contact potential and low current offset to minimize the switching errors that often accompany this relay technology.
This test is applicable to dry reed relays. In a reed contact, the axial and circumferential fields can be generated, respectively, by energizing the coil and measuring current through the reed contact.
