Standex-Meder Reed relays for pulsed high current testing

Standex-Meder Reed relays for pulsed high current testing

Pulsed High Current Testing Applications Use Reed Relays. When Test Equipment and Auto Test Equipment (ATE) systems are used to test discrete semiconductors they often require a switching device that can carry high-pulsed currents that do not distort the pulsed current.  These pulsed currents are used to verify the device under test can handle high and/or surge currents without any degradation in performance.

The high current pulse verifies that the chip is adequately bonded to its substrate.  Also, at the same time, high voltages may be needed to hold off high switching voltages as well.  Using reed relays achieves the goal of billions of successful pulsed operations.

Features

  • In excess of 1 billion operations including pulsed carry currents
  • Small size
  • Ability to carry pulsed currents up to 5 Amps
  • Ability to switch up to 1000 Volts
  • Dielectric strength across the contacts 3000 volts
  • Round leads allow for better adherence when socketed
  • Contacts dynamically tested

  • E-Bikes Brake detection

    E-bicycles are extremely popular. Whether cutting back on carbon emissions or fuel costs, e-bicycles offer many green advantages with similar comforts of conventional bikes. Simple maneuverability and parking are particularly critical if your every day drive is to a congested city. While e-bicycles have been around since the late 1800’s, recent popularity, government regulations and the advent of new sensor technologies have fueled new improvements.

  • Read your sensing elements directly by using the Smartec UTI

    The Universal Transducer Interface (UTI) is a complete analogue front end for low frequency measurement applications, based on a self-calibrating period-modulated oscillator. Sensing elements can be directly connected to the UTI without the need for extra electronics. Only a single reference element, of the same kind as the sensor, is required. The output is digital and can communicate with any type of micro-controller.

    The UTI provides interfacing for all kind of resistive and capacitive sensors.

  • A position test at very limited space by using a probe

    A position sensor system is the ideal solution for exact measurement and documentation of pin lengths, hole depths etc. This system can be used like a contact probe even in small centers. An integrated potentiometer allows the exact determination of the position of the DUT.

  • Current and voltage measurement in and around hybrid and electric drives

    No matter if you're designing a hybrid, electric or fuel cell powered application - a new development's sustainability always depends on the reliability in every-day use and therefore on controlling its energy flow and consumption permanently. Not every method for measuring current and voltage is able to fulfill each of the difficult requirements. Isabellenhütte has developed the current and voltage measuring module IVT for DC applications in alternative drive concepts based on its experience in the area of car battery management.
