Reed Switches Overview:
Reed Switches consist of two flat ferromagnetic reeds sealed in an inert atmosphere within a glass capsule. In the presence of a magnetic field the reeds are attracted to each other and close to complete the magnetic and electric circuit. Our reed switches are manufactured to the highest standards ensuring long life and consistent performance. Reed Switches are available in a wide range of formats and contact ratings. Applications range from power switching in explosive atmospheres to flip-top mobile phones.
