Reed Blade

Reed switch parts

A Reed blade, commonly known as an armature, is one of the two flattened parts that form the cantilever and current carrying parts of a reed switch. Two of these reed blades are hermetically sealed at either ends of a glass tube, with a specific overlap and gap, to form a Reed Switch. The reed blades are made of a special Nickel-Iron alloy having good magnetic permeability and low remanence.
