Bi-stable, form E contact remembers state 10.0W Contact Rating Does not require power for operation  Sputtered Ruthenium contact  Polarity Sensitive  Two types of lead configurations  Molded with internal blades parallel to SMD feet  Packed in tape and reels conforming to IEC-60286-3 norms  RoHS Compliant and Lead-free  Not Sensitive to ESD


These bi-stable reed sensors are built with an inbuilt biasing magnet. As they are molded with pre-flattened leads, no shock is transferred into the device when SMD formation takes place. Various latching/unlatching distances are available depending on the magnet used. The sensors are tested 100% for Operate AT, Release ATStatic Contact Resistance and Variable Contact Resistance before packing. Opposing poles of magnet and sensor cause this normally closed sensor contact to release. Like poles do not cause a release. Choosing the right AT band, magnet strength, and operating axis, will restrict the number of operates and releases to one. All dimensions are in mm.

Tape and Reel Dimensions

The R2E-S and the R2E-F can be tape and reel packed for automatic pick and place, as per IEC-60286-3 norms. 2000 will be packed per spool. 40 – 80g force will be required to peel off cover tape.
