Actuation Distances for MM-1018 Reed Switches

Actuation distances for MM-1018 reed switches of cropped, SMD, Horizontal Mount and Vertical Mount formations in standard AT bands when actuated (as shown in the sketch) using our standard NdFeB magnets are shown below. All distances given are in mm and standard tolerances of ±0.5mm apply.  Although some of the AT band / magnet combinations will produce similar actuating distances, selecting the right AT band and magnet for an application is important and our AT band FAQ and magnet selection guide will help with this.
