Custom reed switch design expands to less than 25 pieces

10 September 2014

Reed Switch Developments has expanded in-house development and manufacturing capabilities to include small, mid-sized and larger quantities.

Production lead times can be as short as 10 business days. The magnetic reed switches are free from mechanical wear and are hermetically sealed, ensuring years of reliable service within demanding environments, claims the company. Most assemblies are also UL recognised and RoHS/REACH compliant. 

The in-house applications engineering team works in close customer collaboration to identify a best fit, based on application and performance parameters. Finished prototypes follow with production commencing upon receipt of customer final approval and a purchase order. Prototype modifications, including the addition of a connector or specification of an alternate housing, can also be routinely accommodated.

The switches are available in SPST, with choice of NO or NC contacts; and SPDT configurations. Customers may choose from a variety of reed materials with varying sensitivities and wattages (0.25 to 100W). A selection of available case materials includes, but is not limited to, Celanex, Celcon, Lexan, Epoxy and Valox. Aluminum, stainless steel and brass housings are also available for more extreme applications.

Custom actuators are also available with a selection of permanent magnets, mating with the switch. This includes custom moulded magnets, configured to meet user-specific mounting and operational requirements. Wire and cable options are also available, with the most popular insulating materials in 18 to 26 AWG sizes. Connectors can also be supplied, including AMP, Molex, JST, Packard, threaded, weather sealed, snap lock, lug, and other types.
