Reed switches


The hermetically closed contact is used to switch electrical signals and loads. It is activated by an external magnet field.


• high life expectancy (up to 109 switching cycles)
• high switching speed (up to 0,2 ms)
• hermetically closed
• maintenance-free
• inexpensive
• very high insulation resistance (up to 1014 Ohm)
• very low contact resistance (50 mOhm)
• switching voltage from a few nano-volt up to 10000 Volt

Working principle

The reed switch is composed of two ferromagnetic blades that are sealed in a glass tube. The blades overlap slightly and have a distance of only a few micrometers. When approaching a magnetic field, they are attracted to each other and close. If the magnetic field weaks (by removing the magnet), the contacts reopen.
