High-Performance Reed Sensors in an Economic and Compact Design!

New Reed Sensor

Our Reed Sensors have expanded with the addition of our new Single-Pole Double-Throw switch with a 14mm glass body.  This SPDT (Form C) surface mount sensor comes in two lead designs, lead design 1 (straight cut axial lead) and lead design 2 (“Gull Wing” with coined bent leads).  The sensor comes in 5 contact sensitivity ranges (B, C, D, E, & F).  Choose from glass sizes ranging from 7mm-21mm in low and high power configurations.  This Series is a non-molded version of our surface mount sensors, offering a more economic and compact design as compared to our over-molded sensors.  The series is sold in Tape & Reel packing, and is suitable for pick and place automation.  Reed Sensors are magnetically actuated, and are ideal in applications that require little or no external power to operate.  This Series offers versatility in that it can be designed into any application where single or multi-point position or liquid level sensing is required.

Surface Mount Reed Sensors

They are magnetically actuated, open Reed proximity Switches for SMT mounting.

  • Lead design 1: Flat, straight leads for PCB slot mounting.
  • Lead design 2: Flat, bent SMD leads (Gull-wing).
  • Lead design 4: Round, bent SMD leads for PCB slot mounting.

Magnet force and position magnet/switches determine Pull-In and Drop-Out point.  These are supplied taped & reeled according to IEC 60286/3.
