Default Günther reed relays??

Does anyone have a link to some website with info on Günther
reed relays? I couldn't find anything with Altavista or Google.

I bought some surplus relays very cheaply, less than $5 for 10
of them. I know the function and the coil voltage, and the pinout
could be measured, but I would like to know a little bit more
about them, like the contact material.

BTW does anyone know if these are supposed to be good? I
understand they are the biggest european manufacturer, but
know nothing about the quality.

I have also a couple of sticks with Günther relays. I remember that they are average, quite OK. I don't either have datasheets....

I actually did find that link when I searched, but it didn't work.
It seems to work now, so it must have been some temporary
problem then.

It is a bit strange that there is no german site. Günther is
claimed to be a german company according to a swedish
representative.

OK, I found the datasheets there. They not overly informative,
though. Not even the high-performance relays had any info
on contact material. Very strange, I think.

It seem Günther is located in Belgium after all.

Rhodium is a common material in reed relays maybe your relays also have it?

Maybe, but there are also other materials used in reed relays,
eg. rhutenium.
