Release AT Configurable. Ruthenium contact. 20.0 mm Glass length. Normally Open. Inert gas filled. 4 types of Lead Formations.


Omni-polar. Does not require power for operation. Sputtered Contact. RoHS Compliant. Not ESD Sensitive.


This 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, for maximum in-group sensitivity. The three Release AT bands which are available cover a wide range of release AT specific applications. The cropped version is suitable for smaller plastic housings and can be soldered to cables, the SMD version is suitable for reflow on PCBs, and the vertical and horizontal mount versions are suitable for mounting on through hole PCBs.
