S225-3357-3 FES: SS234069 22.214.171.124 Reed Relays When inserting reed relays on the circuit board, care must be exercised not to exert pressure on the coil portion of the relay. Pressure exerted on the coil can cause the relay to flex, and breakage of the glass reed switch may occur. To prevent this breakage, the relay must be positioned and pressed on the card with -equal pressure exerted on each of the plastic ends of the relay (Figure 1-12).
