Reed Switches
Reed switches are mechanical switches that react to the presence of magnetic fields (magnets). They are often used as a low-cost alternative to electronic magnetic switches.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • Low-cost sensor system
    For cost-effective applications
  • Installation into the sensor groove
    for space-saving, easy, and fast assembly on the product
  • Version with LED display
    for control of the switching position directly at the sensor
  • Version with standard plug connector
    for fast and easy exchangeability of the extension cable

Options and special information

    The sensor is available in the versions with a plug connector (30 cm cable, M8 connector) or open cable outlet (2 m cable, open strands).
  • Sources of interference
    Sensors can be influenced by other magnetic fields in the immediate vicinity. Disturbing magnetic fields can be generated by motors, electric welders, permanent magnets or magnetized material (so-called soft magnets) such as hexagon socket wrenches, chips, etc.
