Reed Switch - Insulated

Description Attachments

Sparkfun's Reed Switch is a compact, highly functional device that operates based on the presence or absence of a magnetic field. When exposed to a magnetic field, the two ferrous materials inside the switch pull together, closing the switch. Once the magnetic field is removed, the reeds separate, and the switch opens, making it an excellent non-contact switch.

The Reed Switch is designed to be easily populated on a PCB. It is encapsulated, providing it with an additional layer of durability compared to its glass counterparts. The black-colored switch is designed for PCB mounting and has an axial termination style. It is a SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) switch, which means it has one input and one output and can connect or disconnect the circuit.

It operates within a range of 20 AT to 25 AT and can withstand a maximum temperature of +105°C and a minimum of -40°C. The switch has a capacitance of 0.3 pF, can carry a current of 800mA (DC), and switch currents of 350mA (AC) and 500mA (DC). It can switch voltages of 140V (AC) and 200V (DC), with a rated power of 10W. The operate and release time for the switch is 1 ms.

The Reed Switch has an overall length of 40.39mm and a body size of 16.00mm x 2.40mm x 2.40mm. This compact size makes it suitable for various applications where space is a constraint. It is ideal for use in a wide range of electronic devices and systems, including alarm systems, proximity sensors, reed relays, and more.

For more detailed information about the Reed Switch, you can refer to the 59165-1-U-00-A Datasheet. The Reed Switch is a reliable and versatile component that adds functionality and efficiency to your electronic projects.
