Quick Overview

Professional grade general-purpose miniature reed switch with rhodium contacts.


  • Professional grade general-purpose miniature reed switch with rhodium contacts
  • Gives superior life switching relatively heavy loads in a miniature glass package 
  • Has ability maintain low contact resistance over life switching light duty logic level loads 
  • Normal applications include liquid level sensors, security systems, reed relays, proximity sensors and counting devices

  1. The specification for VA rating may sometimes be exceeded for less sensitive (higher AT) switches, and should be decreased for very sensitive (lower AT) switches. Standex-Meder Electronics will run life tests specific to a customer’s load upon request.
  2. Breakdown voltage is measured in the presence of a radioactive ionising source. Switch leakage current is limited to 100 microamperes
  3. Contact resistance measurements are made at 10ma from a 1-volt source, with 50% overdrive, using a 4-wire (Kelvin) measuring system. Contact probes are located on 43 mm centres.
