SMD and PCB mountable Reed sensors offer a reliable and cost-effective solution for various applications as they are manufactured to withstand higher shoch and vibration limits.  These highly sensitive devices are made by molding or encapsulating a naked glass Reed Switch. When a magnetic field is applied to the reed sensor, the reeds come into contact, completing an electrical circuit.

One of the primary advantages of reed sensors is their simplicity. Their versatility makes them suitable for a wide range of industries, including automotive, consumer electronics, medical, and security applications.

Reed sensors are commonly used in proximity sensing applications, where their ability to detect the presence or absence of a magnetic field is crucial. They can sense the opening and closing of doors, windows, and cabinets, making them ideal for security systems. Additionally, they are used in position sensing, detecting the position of movable parts in machinery or equipment.

The inherent durability of reed sensors makes them a reliable choice for demanding environments. They can withstand higher temperatures, shock, and vibrations, ensuring their performance in harsh conditions when compared to their naked reed switch couterparts. Furthermore, reed sensors have a long operating life, providing consistent and accurate results over many millions of operations at low level signal switching loads.

The low power consumption of reed sensors is another beneficial feature. They require no energy to operate, making them suitable for battery-operated devices. This energy efficiency contributes to overall system efficiency and helps prolong battery life.

We manufacture a range of SMD Reed Sensors, and PCB Mountable Reed Sensors in Normally Open, Normally Closed, and Latching forms. SMD Reed Sensors are supplied in tapes conforming to IEC 60286-3 standards, for automatic pick and place, and can be used in assemblies where all the components are SMD.

The PCB Mountable Reed Sensors, which are Omni-polar, come in a range of sizes and mounting pitches, capable of switching the lowest of 1W loads, up to 30 W. In addition, molded PCB mountable reed sensors with an integrated resistor are available. The integrated resistor can be used for building Level Sensors, for Contact Protection, or for any custom applications.

For environmental reasons, the leads are plated with pure Tin, which is Lead-free.
