♦ Does not require power for operation ♦ Normally Open Form A contact Sputtered Ruthenium contact ♦ Omni-polar device; actuates with either pole of magnet ♦ 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 R5 ultra-miniature SMD reed sensors are designed for signal switching applications and have a size advantage over the standard size SMD reed sensor. As they are molded with pre-flattened leads, no shock is transferred into the device when SMD formation takes place. Various activating distances are available depending on the magnet and the AT band used. The sensors are tested 100% for Operate AT, Release AT, Static Contact Resistance and Variable Contact Resistance before packing. Our products are completely Lead-free and conform to the RoHS directive.
This reed sensor is suitable for use in the following applications and in many others: cellular phones and PDAs, dentists drills, pacemakers and defibrillators, nerve stimulators, spirometers, lightsabers, exhaust emission sensing, level sensors…

Denotes Gull-wing version in 7 – 12 Operate AT.
A few examples of magnet actuation are shown above. Being an omnipolar device, this sensor can be actuated with either a north pole or a south pole or both. Choosing the right AT band, magnet strength, and operating axis, will restrict the number of operates and releases to one.
