Reed Switches

Reed Switch Applications Overview

Usage of reed switches and reed sensors is fairly straightforward provided certain guidelines and precautions listed in our usage notes are followed. Although reed switch applications are immense, we have broadly classified them into four categories. Most applications do fall under one of these. In the application pages, we have suggested specific products for each application, but this does not mean that the other products in the same product category will be unsuitable.

Temperature Sensing

Temperature Sensing

Due to their sharp cut in, cut out bandwidth and high reliability, thermal reed switches are find applications in place of bimetallic strips, thermistors and thermostats for over-heat protection… Continue reading

Relay Applications

Relay Applications

Producing a relay using a reed switch is simple compared to conventional electromechanical relays which require many moving parts. Reed Switch based reed relays, made by inserting a single or multiple reed switches… Continue reading

 

Pulse Counting

Pulse Counting

Reed Switches have a very high operating frequency and this feature lends itself to high speed pulse counting applications. Mounting a magnet to a rotating wheel or an object which moves back and forth… Continue reading

Position sensing

Position sensing

When an application requires proximity sensing, end position sensing, or moving part sensing, a reed switch or a reed sensor fixed to the stationary surface and a magnet fixed to the moving surface… Continue reading
