New 8-Pole Reed Relay Module - Next Generation in Drivers & Saves 25% PCB Space!
The next generation in 8-pole reed relay module design has arrived! Now with a 25% smaller footprint, our new RM05-8-S model outshines our existing RM05-8A. At only 33 x 6.95 x 14.05mm, the RM05-8-S is equipped with 8 internal reed switches and the most up-to-date generation of integrated drivers, eliminating the need for external activation electronics.
Its smaller size and standardized dual-in-line pin out configuration make it highly suitable for a broader range of smaller applications in the test and measurement, telecommunications and high frequency markets.
Moreover, the RM05-8-S is designed with gold plated leads for improved solderability. Use a single relay module individually or simply interconnect several RM modules in parallel to increase the overall storage capacity of input-signal-bits.
The relay reaches a rated power of up to 10 W with a maximum switching voltage of maximum 170 VDC and a switching current of maximum 0,5 A.
Reed Relay Solutions for Functional PCB Tester
Functional PCB testers test printed circuit boards as large as 600 mm by 600 mm (or 2 foot square). These boards are in some cases, up to 20 layers thick, requiring 1000s of test points for functional verification. Each one of these test points may require as many as 6 switches each to provide the various voltages and currents for proper measurement. Because of size restrictions, isolation, relatively fast acting and good RF characteristics, reed relays are often chosen as the testing switch. A fully loaded tester can therefore house over 20,000 reed relays. If there is one relay failure, this is equivalent to a failure level of 50 part per million (PPM). So the quality and reliability must reign supreme. Standex-Meder’s reed relays have stepped up to meet these requirements; and their relays have become an accepted standard in the Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) industry.
