High Voltage Relay

High Voltage Reed Relay technology is based upon our extensive experience in the design and manufacture of Reed Switches and Reed Relays.

High Voltage Reed Relays have outstanding performance characteristics in insulation resistance and stand-off voltage. The high dielectric stand-off voltage between the open contacts as well as the high switching voltage are achieved by using high vacuum Reed Switches. A proven assembly and potting technique assures the following relay characteristics:

        Stand-off voltage across open contacts from 3 KV up to 14

          KV max.

        - Stand-off voltage between coil and contact from 10 KV

          up to 25 KV max.

        - Switching voltage from 1.5 KV up to 10 KV max.


High Voltage Reed Relays are offered in a variety of contact configurations:

        - 1 N.O., 2 N.O. or 4 N.O. contacts (normally open contacts)

        - 1 N.C.                                            (normally closed contact)

        - 1 N.C. / 1 N.O. (1 normally closed contact/1 normally open contact)

High Voltage Reed Relays offer mounting flexibility enabling the customer to match different application requirements:

        - Coil and Reed Switch connecting pins in the base plate for     PCB  mounting.

        - Coil connecting pins in the base plate for PCB mounting and  Reed Switch 

           connections with cable.

        - Coil connecting pins in the base plate for PCB mounting and   Reed Switch 

           connecting pins on top of the relay.

High Voltage Reed Relays have additional features:

        - Immunity against harsh environmental conditions (eg. high humidity) by   using  

           hermetically sealed switching contacts potted in a strong plastic case.

        - High shock and vibration resistance.

        - Low contact capacitance and high switching frequency in comparison   

          with electric  mechanical, open relay contacts.

        -Washable and resistant to standard automatic cleaning methods.

High Voltage Reed Relays find application in many areas of the electrotechnical and electronic industry:

        - Electronic medical equipment

        - Cable tester arrays and cable test equipment

        - Copy machines

        - Laser optical systems and infra-red equipment

        - Test equipment
