Coto Technology’s relay design labs and corporate offices are located in scenic North Kingstown, RI (USA) along the shores of Narragansett Bay. From reed relays & solid state relays to TMR magnetic sensors, Coto has established itself as a market leader in product quality and design innovation.
Coto Technology’s reed relay & reed switch manufacturing facility is located in Mexicali, Mexico. Coto Technology, Inc. originated in Providence, Rhode Island, USA in 1917 as Coto Coil Incorporated – a company specializing in the design and manufacture of coil windings. During the mid-1960’s, Coto expanded its product line by introducing the reed relay – the result of integrating reed switches into coil windings. By 1970, Coto emerged as a leading manufacturer of reed relays with the development of the first patented Low-Thermal EMF reed relay. Coto went on to produce the first ever surface mounted reed relays in 1983, the world’s smallest SMD reed relay in 1994, and the first patented reed relay with >8 GHz performance in 2001.
In 2010, Coto relocated its relay design labs and corporate offices to scenic North Kingstown, RI along the shores of Narragansett Bay. The new, high-efficiency facilities allow Coto engineers to focus on developing solutions for tomorrow’s small signal switching applications. Whether it’s high-speed serial data communication, signal integrity analysis, or the increasing demands for greater bandwidth and higher frequency, Coto is prepared and committed to solving the applications concerns of our customers now and in the years to come. In 2014, the company introduced its comprehensive CotoMOS® solid state relay line. And in 2016, Coto launched its revolutionary TMR-based miniature RedRock sensors and switch series products.
Today, Coto is a worldwide market leader of small signal switching products sold into the Automatic Test Equipment, Data Acquisition, Instrumentation, Process Control, Telecommunications, Medical and Security markets. Coto specializes in the manufacture of relay, switch and sensor products.
Non-standard package sizes and pinouts, custom coil and shielding designs, and multi-pole configurations are common variables. Coto relays are capable of carrying up to six amps, and can provide switching currents up to four amps along with 10-15 KV switching. Coto relays are qualified to the highest electrical test specifications in the reed relay industry. To improve efficiency, enhance responsiveness and increase capacity, Coto has renovated its manufacturing facility in Mexico by investing in additional manufacturing automation technology. Manufacturing processes utilizing ergonomic workstations, coupled with fully automated winding, wire termination, molding and laser marking increase efficiency while ensuring high levels of quality. Also, a Learning Center provides Coto employees with educational opportunities, enhancement of job skills, and operator certification.
