Standex Electronics Announces Newly Designed SHV Reed Relay

Improved molded SHV series Relay replaces potted version of the SIL-HV Reed Relay

SHV Reed RelayCincinnati, OH — September 25, 2015  — Standex Electronics, a manufacturer of reliable High Voltage reed relays, announces a newly improved molded S-HV series single in-line high voltage reed relay that is smaller and more compact. It features an internal magnetic shield that is ideal for a high density board assembly. Having a high-breakdown (hold off) voltage of 4 kVDC and a typical contact resistance of 70 mOhm allows for the best condition for high voltage test and measurement applications.

Other improvements include a high voltage and high power switching capability of 100 W/1000 VDC / 1 A, breakdown voltage and dielectric strength up to 4 kVDC, pulsed carry-current up to 3A , an optional suppression diode, and better washability resistance and rating.

The enhancements made to the SIL-HV reed relay provides improved durability within humid environments. The insulation resistance has the ability to serve applications of up to 10 TOhm between coil and contact. This relay’s updated compact molded packaging design also delivers better resistance for high demand applications. Especially vital when used with an eco-friendly aqueous cleaning solution with subsequent drying after the soldering process, the SIL-HV reed relay is RoHS compliant and is currently in the process of being UL listed.
