Standex Electronics Announces Online Reed Relay Training Module

Helps design engineers understand how to use reed relays in electronics applications

Cincinnati, OH – May 8, 2014 — Standex Electronics, a leading manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting sensors and magnetic components worldwide, now offers an in-depth training module, Reed Relay Overview, ideal for helping design engineers explore what reed relays are, what they do, and how they are used in electronics design. Reed relays are extremely desirable in so many electronics applications because its hermetically sealed reed switch works reliably under requirements not met by any other technology.

The reed relay training module is supplied as part of Digi-Key’s PTM Online …On Demand%reg; product training modules. The easy to use presentation includes an audio narration along with simple diagrams and graphics that aid the learning process. Conveniently divided into 28 short segments, the read-at-your-own-pace is perfect for busy design engineers who need to learn more about the many ways magnets are being used in today’s electronics designs.

Engineers can learn about the basic elements that make up a reed relay, its operation, and the importance of dynamic contact resistance (DCR) in both its long life and in choosing the right reed relay for a particular application. Also covered is practical information on the types of reed relays available in a range of contact configurations, accompanied by charts and graphic aids, in addition to a discussion of the unique qualities of reed relays such as its unrivaled insulation resistance, the ability to carry very high frequencies, and its capabilities under extreme temperatures. Finally, the training module delves deeply into how to use reed relays in today’s designs, providing detailed graphics on how reed relays are employed in automated test equipment (ATE), electronic instruments, telecommunications applications such as line switching and sensing, passive infrared sensors (PIRs) in security systems and more.
