What are Magnetic Reed Switches?
A Magnetic Reed Switch is an electrical switch that makes or breaks contacts in the presence of a magnetic field, i.e. the switch remains actuated as long as a strong magnetic field is present and opens when the field is removed.
How does a Magnetic Reed Switch work?
Magnetic Reed Switches work similar to relays, closing an electrical contact in the presence of a magnetic field. A nearby magnetic field from either an electromagnet or permanent magnet pulls one contact against the other, closing the switch. When the magnetic field is removed, the spring action in the stiff metal contacts opens the connection. Because the thin contacts have low mass, they can operate up to 10 times faster than conventional relays with similar ratings.
- Magnetic Reed Switches have lower contact resistance.
- Switching speed of a magnetic switch is much faster than a conventional relay.
- Magnetic Switches have a longer life.
- Because they are sealed, magnetic switches eliminate sparking hazards in flammable or explosive environments.
- The switch contacts are hermetically sealed, so they don’t suffer from oxidization or contamination in the same way as an open electro-mechanical relay.
- It can switch both AC as well as DC.
- It can be used by magnet in open or closed state indefinitely without any power consumption.
- It’s performance is not affected due to dust or dirt unlike optical switch.
Magnetic Sensors find applications in vast areas, from simple position sensing in doors, to more complicated ones used in the military, to more sophisticated cellular phone radio frequency (RF) switching electronics and in the medical industry.
