Reed Relays Handbook - how they work, how they are constructed and how to interpret their specs

This educational book provides an overview of how reed relays work, how they are constructed and how to interpret their specifications and make best use of them in their applications. It is a 34-page practical book aimed at engineers. It requires little or no theoretical knowledge about the materials they are constructed from, all the issues are dealt with in a practical manner.

This book was written by engineers at Pickering Electronics with the intention that users will better understand the efforts that go into designing what in principle is a simple component but which in practice is a complicated product full of engineering compromises and best value judgements.
