IL-2022 Reed Switch for Inductive Loads

This Inductive Load switching IL-2022 Reed Switch is designed for performance at moderate inductive loads of 15W. The flattened leads are especially useful for orienting the internal blades to face one way while soldering, welding etc. Even though this Reed Switch is recommended for switching inductive loads, using contract protection will extend the life in the field. Three configurable Release AT bands cover a wide range of release AT specific applications. Of the lead formations available, the cropped version is suitable for smaller plastic housings and can be soldered to cables, the SMD formed version is suitable for reflow on PCBs, and the vertical and horizontal mount versions are suitable for mounting on through hole PCBs.
