Grading of Reed Switches
Reed Switches are finally multiple cycle tested, with full leads or formed lead depending on customer requirements, for various electrical and magnetic parameters. A few of the important parameters that are tested are pull-in, drop-out, static contact resistance, variable contact resistance, operate time, release time, differential etc. Some of the reed switches that don’t not meet the requirements are sent for further tests. Sorting of reed switches are then conducted to separate them into various AT groups as per customer requirements.
