Reed Sensor Operates Magnetically

Reed Sensor Operates Magnetically
Littelfuse Inc.

Viable for use in position and limit sensing, security, level sensing, and linear actuator applications, the 59022 Series firecracker reed sensor is magnetically operated. The component is capable of switching up to 265 Vac/300 Vdc at 10 W/VA. Compact in size, diameter is 5.8 mm. Designed for use with the matching 57022 actuator, typical applications for the 59022 sensor include position/limit sensing, level sensing, and speed and distance measuring/sensing. Because it can operate through non-ferrous materials such as wood, plastic, or aluminum, it offers a non-contact solution that's more aesthetically appealing than push button or lever mechanical-type switches.
