The company says its reed switches have applications in liquid level sensors, proximity sensors, and other sensor applications where a regular mechanical switch will not work. According to the company, reed switches have the advantage of being sealed in glass in an inert gas, eliminating contact resistance and outside environmental issues.
Ratings of 250 million cycles can be achieved. All reeds can be customized to fit PC boards for push-in or SMT applications. The switching current ranges from 0.3 to 3 A.
