Standex-Meder Electronics, a manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting miniature switches, sensors and relays, announces the availability of its new Reed Technology Databook, a comprehensive resource with nearly 100 pages of technical information and application examples for reed technology. Available in English and German, the Reed Technology Databook can be downloaded from the Standex-Meder website. Request a printed copy from [email protected]
Learn all about reed switch characteristics and features, as well as specifications for magnets needed to activate reed switches. Handling and load precautions for using reed switches in sensor and relay applications are covered in detail, including load switching and contact protection, and protection circuitry.
Reed switches’ hermeticity lends itself to more switching applications than any other switching device, and the Databook discusses just a selection of application examples revealing the incredible diversity of use for the reed switch. An overview on reed switch selection and packaging includes Reed Switch Sensor selector guide to help arrive at the best choice. Also discussed are reed relay applications, which are growing rapidly in response to their ability to switch signals as low as femtoamps and nanovolts.
