Contact Force

Contact force is the force between the two reed blades of a reed switch in closed condition, actuated with an Over-drive of at least 25%. A higher contact force ensures lower contact resistance. Factors that affect contact force of a Reed Contact are the overdrive, diameter of the blade wire, flexibility of the blades and uniformity of the annealing.
