Shock Resistance

Automobile shock vibration

Shock resistance of a reed contact, is the acceleration limit and sine-wave duration in milli-seconds that an open reed contact (with no magnetic field present) or a closed reed contact (with a 100% overdrive) can withstand without changing state.

The majority of normally open reed switches should withstand a shock level of 100g at right angles to the plane of the reed blades without changing state.
