Reed Switches

Marine and Weather

Reed Sensors find an important place in marine applications where they are exposed to salt water and sub zero temperatures due to their inherent corrosion resistant contact characteristics. A variety of fluid levels need to be constantly monitored in boats. The marine industry also needs weather instruments like pressure gauges, anemometers, and wind vanes for safe navigation. Reed Sensors are also used in these instruments. We have also suggested few of our products for use in each application, but this does not mean that the other products in the same product category will be unsuitable.

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Wind Vanes

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Wind Vanes

Eight reed switches are mounted radially at 22.5 degree angles making compass points on a circular PCB and the wind vane contains one long magnet which is the diameter of the PCB.The wind vane is mounted … Continue reading

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Pressure Gauges

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Pressure Gauges

Bourdon tube pressure gauges are fitted with a magnet on the Bourdon tube itself so that as pressure increases, the magnet moves along a circumference. A circular PCB with many reed switches… Continue reading

 

Reed sensors in Accurate level sensing of fluids

Reed sensors in Accurate level sensing of fluids

Special reed sensors with an integrated resistor can be mounted on PCBs to give out a potentiometric feed back across two outputs as a foamed magnetic float moves along its length. The PCB tracks can be designed… Continue reading

Proximity Sensors in Anemometers

Proximity Sensors in Anemometers

Spinning cup anemometers are fitted with magnets and as the wind blows, a reed sensor can count the number of pulses which can then be used to calculate wind speed… Continue reading

 

Reed sensors in Survival rafts and ELTs

Reed sensors in Survival rafts and ELTs

Survival rafts contain water sensors which trigger the compressed air cylinder to inflate the raft. To prevent against accidental inflation, a small magnet and reed switch is placed… Continue reading
